A rare variant of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis

Eid Hatem , Andrabi Basharat , Kurera I , Bano G

HashimotoÂ’s thyroiditis (HT) is the most common inflammatory condition of the thyroid gland. In addition to the classic variant of HT, several other subtypes have been identified, such as the fibrous variant (HTFV).Case history: A 38 years old man noticed a rapidly enlarging lump in his neck month ago. This resulted in discomfort with choking sensation and mild dysphagia. He mentioned weight loss, tiredness and night sweats. He was a smoker and dran...

Aluminium oxide nanoparticles-induced spermatotoxicity, oxidative stress and changes in reproductive hormones and testes histopathology in male rats: Possible protective effect of glutathione

Yousef Mokhtar Ibrahim , Shalaby Thanaa I. , Kareem Adil A.

There is a rising use of Aluminium oxide nanoparticles (Al2O3NPs) in many branches of industry and personal care products. Because of these uses, their impact on the environment must be considered and investigated. Almost nothing is known about the effects of Al2O3NPs on semen quality and reproductive hormones. Possible mechanisms for the cytotoxicity of Al2O3NPs are still being discussed, but oxidative stress m...

A rare synchronous presentation of aldosterone producing adenoma and multifocal papillary thyroid microcarcinoma

Davitadze M , Metreveli D , Gudushauri I , Mikadze K

Introduction: In this report, we describe a rare coexistence of a multifocal papillary thyroid (micro)carcinoma and aldosterone-producing adenoma.Case presentation: A 60-year-old man attended our clinic with a mass in the right adrenal gland was identified during the work-up in 2007. The patient presented complaints on anxiety, tachycardia, and arterial hypertension. He had several episodes of severe hypertension (220/120 mmHg) while sleeping. In 2014, a...

Hypoparathyroidism incidence in patients operated on papillary thyroid carcinoma — are there any changes in a 20 year time-lapse?

Lushchyk Maxim , Tuzava Hanna , Dudzik Natallia , I. Danilova Larissa

Introduction: Today, thyroid papillary cancer remains to be the most frequent diagnosed malignancy. Despite highly positive outcomes, treatment protocol still requires surgical intervention, which, in turn often affects not only thyroid and regional lymph nodes, but also recurrent nerve and parathyroid glands. The aim of our study was to compare the metabolic compensation of calcium and thyroid metabolism improvement in patients operated on thyroid cancer recently and 20 years...

A single metastatic lesion in the leg of a parathyroid carcinoma

Martins A. , Martins J. , Vale S. , Batista L. , Carmo I.

Introduction: We report a case of a parathyroid carcinoma with very unusual and revealing features.Case report: DAB, male aged 66 was subjected to subtotal gastrectomy because of a localized gastric adenocarcinoma (intestinal type). A mild primary hyperparathyroidism (PTH<200 pg/ml) was simultaneously found. Calcium oxalate nephrolythiasis at 50 years was noted. Sonography revealed a nodular lesion in the right lower thyroid pole, while NMR showed a ...

The effect of potassium supplementation on the endothelium, the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) and blood pressure in patients at moderate cardiovascular disease risk

Graham U. , McCance D. , Young I. , Mullan K.

There is limited evidence on the effect of potassium (K+) supplementation on endothelial function. Three studies suggest a beneficial effect in healthy volunteers and mild hypertensives. However potassium increases aldosterone due to a direct effect on the adrenal gland and there is evidence that aldosterone excess is detrimental to cardiovascular health. We therefore aimed to determine the effect of potassium supplementation on endothelial function in patients with >10% c...

Metabolic and glycaemic profile in patients with acute coronary syndrome

Maric A. , Gradiser M. , Igrec M. , Marodi I. , Katalinic D.

Introduction: Components of metabolic syndrome, particularly overweight, dyslipidemia and diabetes mellitus (DM), are well known cardiovascular risk factors. The objective of this work was to evaluate the metabolic and glycaemic profile in patients (pts) with acute coronary syndrome (ACS), treated in our institution.Methods: A total of 126 pts with ACS (unstable angina, acute myocardial infarction with /STEMI/or without ST-segment elevation/NSTEMI/) were...

Chemerin/CMKLR1 and adiponectin/T-cadherin expression in human coronary arterial wall and pericoronary adipose tissue in correlation with atherosclerosis

Kostopoulos C. , Karamouzis I. , Spiroglou S. , Papadaki H.

Introduction: Perivascular adipose tissue has been implicated in vascular physiology and pathology, including atherosclerosis. Local adipokine production is one of the paracrine mechanisms involved in this adipose tissue fuction. We investigated the expression of adipokines chemerin and adiponectin and their receptors CMKLR1 and T-cadherin, respectively, in human coronary arterial wall and pericoronary fat as well as their correlation with coronary atherosclerosis.<p class...

Development of primary hyperparathyroidism is closely associated with the onset of dyslipidemia and insulin resistance in a large family harboring a MEN1 gene mutation

Anselmo J. , Moniz C. , Sousa I. , Cesar R.

Introduction: Dyslipidemia is a common finding in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism and together with hypertension and glucose intolerance seems to be responsible by the increased risk of cardiovascular disease in hyperparathyroid patients. In the present work we studied members of a family harboring a MEN1 gene mutation (type 1 multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome). The penetrance of primary hyperparathyroidism in this condition is close to 100%, starting usually dur...

Chemerin/CMKLR1 and adiponectin/T-cadherin expression in human aortic wall and periaortic adipose tissue in correlation with atherosclerosis

Kostopoulos C. , Karamouzis I. , Spiroglou S. , Papadaki H.

Introduction: Periadventitial adipose tissue has been implicated in vascular physiology and pathology, including atherosclerosis, through paracrine and endocrine mechanisms, mainly adipokine production. We investigated the expression of adipokines chemerin and adiponectin and their receptors CMKLR1 and T-cadherin, respectively, in human aortic arterial wall and periaortic fat as well as their correlation with aortic atherosclerosis.Methods: Paraffin embe...
