First seizure presentation in an elderly woman with primary vitamin D deficiency: a case report

Arpaci Dilek , Yilmaz Ulku , Yaylaci Selcuk , Colbay Mehmet , Tamer Ali

Introduction: Vitamin D insufficiency is common in older people and is associated with several disorders related to aging such as osteoporosis, which leads to a significantly increased risk of bone fractures.

Primary hyperparathyroidism with severe hypercalcemia during pregnancy

Akin Fulya , Erturk Mehmet Sercan , Yaylali Guzin Fidan , Soysal Ergun

Introduction: Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) commonly goes unrecognized due to the physiological changes of pregnancy.PHPT is associated with significant maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. Current evidence supports parathyroidectomy is the main treatment, performed preferably during the second trimester, when the serum calcium is above 11–mg/dl. We report the clinical course of a woman with newly diagnosed gestational PHPT who refused minimally invasive parat...

Increased prolactin levels cause increased MPV in women with PCOS

Yilmaz Ozgur , Calan Mehmet , Temur Muzaffer , Kume Tuncay , Yesil Pinar

Introduction: It is well known association between cardiovascular disease and PCOS. Approximately 17–43% of women with PCOS have hyperprolactinemia. Increased levels of prolactin often associated with an increased risk for thromboembolic events, but underline pathophisiological mechanism still unknown. The strong association between hyperprolactinemia and platelet aggregation is well known. Platelets play a key role in the development of atherothrombosis, a major contribu...

Mean platelet volume in euthyroid patients with Hashimoto's thyroiditis

Carliuglu Ayse , Timur Ozge , Durmaz Senay Arikan , Ayhan Mehmet Emin

Aim: Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) is an autoimmune disease in which a breakdown of immune tolerance is caused by interplay of a variety of immunologic, genetic, and environmental factors. Mean platelet volume (MPV) is the measure of platelet size. MPV possibly is a simple way to estimate platelet activity. Activated platelets play an important role in the pathogenesis of vascular disease especially coronary heart diseases. Larger platelets are metabolically and enzymatica...

Calan Mehmet , Bilgir Oktay , Bilgir Ferda , Topcuoglu Tugba , Calan Ozlem

Background: This study was planned to reveal the effect of propylthiouracil treatment on CD40, hs-CRP and Fetuin-A levels of subjects with subclinical hyperthyroidism.Material and methods: After checking CD40, hs-CRP and Fetuin-A levels of 35 patients with subclinical hyperthyroidism, they were given 50 mg of propylthiouracil tablet (thrice daily). After the 3-month administration, CD40, hs-CRP and Fetuin-A levels were then compared to the levels before ...
