Evranos Berna , Faki Sevgul , Polat Sefika Burcak , Ugurlu Nagihan , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Prolactinoma is a type of pituitary tumor that produces excessive amount of the hormone prolactin. It is the most common type of hormonally-active pituitary tumor. These tumors can result in ocular complications such as vision loss and visual fields (VF) defect. In this study, we aimed to evaluate thicknesses of chorioretinal layers in patients with prolactinoma.Material and method: We enrolled 21 prolactinoma patients (13 females, 8 males ...

Thyroid amyloidosis mimicking medullary thyroid carcinoma

Faki Sevgul , Aydin Cevdet , Ogmen Berna , Dirikoc Ahmet , Mehmet Inan Haci , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Amyloid accumulation in the thyroid gland leading to a clinically detectable mass is a rare clinical entity. The diagnosis of thyroid amyloidosis can be confused clinically as well as cytologically with both colloidal goiter or neoplastic processes of the thyroid. We report a case of thyroid amyloidosis that was initially misinterpreted as medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) clinical and cytological examination.Case: A 24 years old man with c...

Coincidental prolactinoma and parathyroid adenoma in a patient with negative MEN1 and MEN4

Faki Sevgul , Aydin Cevdet , Cuneyt Bilginer Muhammet , Yukselguler Bagdegul , Abbas Tam Ali , Kilic Mehmet , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1) is associated with neoplasia and hyperfunction of the parathyroid and pituitary glands, pancreatic islet cells, and neuroendocrine cells of the gut. Many authors advocate routine subtotal or total parathyroidectomy and autotransplantation for these patients. Here we demostrate negative MEN1 and MEN4 gene mutation analysis in a case with prolactinoma and a large parathyroid adenoma that could not be localized with preope...

ABO blood groups, Rh factor and thyroid cancer risk: To ‘B’ or not to ‘B’

Tam Abbas Ali , Ozdemir Didem , Faki Sevgul , Bilginer Muhammet Cuneyt , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Aim: In this study, we aimed to evaluate ABO blood groups and Rh factor in patients with thyroid cancer. We also assessed whether the ABO/Rh factor had any effect on prognosis, agressive features and advanced stage of thyroid malignancies.Methods: Medical records of patients who underwent thyroidectomy between December 2006 and September 2014 were evaluated retrospectively. Demographical and clinical features, cytological results (according to Bethesda c...

May cinacalcet improve psychiatric symptoms by decreasing calcium levels in lithium-associated hyperparathyroidism?

Faki Sevgul , Aydin Cevdet , Polat Sefika Burcak , Ozdemir Didem , Bilginer Muhammet Cuneyt , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Lithium is the preferred and most efficacious therapy for acute and maintenance therapy of bipolar depressive disorder. Lithium use is associated with an increased incidence of hyperparathyroidism (4.3–6.3%) and have a female preponderance. Bilateral neck exploration was the most common surgical approach while a few patients were managed medically. The initial management of Lithium-associated hyperparathyroidism (LAH) is medical intervention which includes d...

Adrenal incidentaloma, single center clinical experience

Turan Erdogan Beril , Evranos Ogmen Berna , Keskin Caglar , FAKI Sevgul , Aydin Cevdet , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Backgorund: Adrenal incidentalomas (AI) are lesions discovered incidentally on imaging without clinical symptoms or examination findings. AI can produce hormones in 5-30% of cases. Autonomic cortisol secretion (ACS) is the most common of these. Although ACS is asymptomatic, it increases the risk of metabolic disorders.Methods: Patients aged<18 years with adrenal adenoma and upper abdominal MRI who presented and were examined in the endocrinology outp...

Evaluation of Breast Calcification, Calcification Characteristics and BI-RADS (Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System) Categories in Patients with Primary Hyperparathyroidism

Dilek Dellal Kahramanca Fatma , FAKI Sevgul , Yiğit Koroğlu Ekin , Ozsoy Arzu , Dirikoc Ahmet , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Aim: It is hypotethically thought that increased frequency of breast cancer in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism(PHPT)may be due to the fact that calcium accumulation in the breast may be higher in patients with PHPT giving rise to more breast-related examinations. Although there are many studies or case reports showing calcification in many organs and tissues, in PHPT, there is not any study investigating breast calcification in these patients in the literature. We ai...

Pheochromocytoma associated with von Hippel-lindau disease

Faki Sevgul , Arifoglu Unzile , Dibeklioğlu Bilge , Tuncel Altuğ , Keskin Muge , Tam Abbas Ali , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) syndrome is a pathological condition that causes various clinical symptoms and is difficult to diagnose. The most common pathological lesions are hemangioblastomas of the central nervous system, retinal angiomas, renal clear cell carcinomas, and pheochromocytomas. Here we reposrt a case of likely to be VHL due to his family history.Case: A 33-year-old male suffering from hypertension and a history of hemangioblastoma operated in 2...

Association of ABO blood groups with diabetic microvascular complications

Faki Sevgul , Ince Nurcan , Ali Tam Abbas , Turan Erdogan Beril , Cuhacı Seyrek Neslihan , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Background: Micro vascular complications are the major outcome of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus progression, which reduces the quality of life and increases diabetic morbidity & mortality. As the incidence of type 2 diabetes is growing day by day; our search for its aetiology and pathogenesis is also ever growing to predict its risk factors and early screening for better care and prevention of its complications. Many studies have tried to link susceptibility of type 2 diabetes ...

Early diagnosis of primary biliary cirrhosis during follow-up for Graves’ disease

Faki Sevgul , Bilginer Muhammet Cuneyt , Aydin Cevdet , Ozdemir Didem , Baser Husniye , Ersoy Osman , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Hepatic dysfunction in hyperthyroidism may occur due to high thyroid hormones, medications or associated autoimmune liver disease. Autoimmune hepatitis or primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) has rarely been reported in Graves’ disease. We report a patient presenting with pruritus and diagnosed as accompanying PBC and Graves’ disease.Case: A 50 years old female patient applied with progressive pruritus for at least 4 months.
