A case of ectopic Cushing syndrome due to pheocromositoma

Gungunes Askin , Durmaz Senay Arikan , Cifci Aydin , Erden Esra , Tas Merve , Yalcin Selim

Background and aim: Pheochromocytoma, is a catecholamine-producing tumor, may rarely secrete other hormones such as adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). We aimed to report a rare case of ectopic cushing syndrome due to malignant pheochromocytoma.Case report: A 42-year-old man admitted to outpatient clinic with headache, irritability, vomiting, nausea, and palpitation. He had paroxysmal hypertension and urinary fractionated metanephrines were measured appr...

Obesity may influence on measurements of choroid thickness in optical coherence tomography

Yumusak Erhan , Durmaz Senay Arikan , Guler Hatice Ayhan , Bacanli Zehra , Carlioglu Ayse

Introduction and aims: It is known that obesity is associated with retinal microvascular changes. Optical coherence tomography (OCT), a new imaging technique, is used to visualize the choroid. In addition, OCT can also give more beneficial information about systemic and eye diseases. We aim to investigate whether or not obesity may impact on choroid and macula thickness.Material and methods: Forty-four subjects who were apply for obesity in our Endocrino...

High mean platelet volume in prolactinoma treated with cabergoline

Durmaz Senay Arikan , Tasdelen Mustafa Rasid , Carlioglu Ayse , Cifci Aydin , Gungunes Askin

Introduction and aim: Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a new important indicator of platelet activity in atherosclerosis. Elevated MPV is associated with the presence of more metabolically active platelets. The aim of our study is to evaluate whether change of MPV value is associated with cabergoline treatment in patients with prolactinoma.Materials and methods: Thirty patients with prolactinoma (mean age 33.4±8.5 years and body mass index (BMI): 28.1&...

A rare case of acromegaly concomitant with pancreatic adenocarcinoma

Durmaz Senay Arikan , Gungunes Askin , Oguz Dilek , Yalcin Selim , Turhan Nesrin

Background and aim: Acromegaly is a rare endocrine disease and is associated with an increased prevalence of colorectal cancer and pre-malignant tubular adenomas, and also may be associated with other organ malignancies such as breast and thyroid. We report a rare case of acromegaly concomitant with adenocarcinoma arising from pancreas.Case report: A 52-year-old man who was diagnosed with acromegaly two years ago referred our outpatient clinic. After dia...

Multi-directional approach for mean platelet volume in differentiated thyroid cancer

Kiziltunc Ozmen Hilal , Askin Seda , Simsek Eda , Carlioglu Ayse , Arikan Senay

Background: Differential thyroid cancer (DTC) is classified into papillary, follicular and papillary micro thyroid cancer. Also, mean platelet volume (MPV) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The aim of the present study was to investigate MPV values in DTC patients.Materials and methods: The levels of MPV were assessed in 183 patients with DTC 44 papillary thyroid cancer (mean age 43.±13.9) 34 papillary micro thyroid cancer (m...

Gestational diabetes mellitus may associate with atherosclerosis due to high mean platelet volume which is a determined of platelet function

Durmaz Senay Arikan , Carlioglu Ayse , Eris Bilge , Yildiz Faruk , Kilic Halime

Aim: Mean platelet volume (MPV), which is a determinant of platelet function, is an independent risk factor for atherosclerosis. The aim of this study is to evaluate MPV values in gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM).Material and methods: Forty-nine women with gestational diabetes mellitus (mean age 28.2±4.7 years) and 40 healthy pregnant women (mean 26.2±4.6 years age) who came to our Out-Patient Clinic of Endocrinology were included in the stu...

Scleredema in a patient with long-standing type 2 diabetes mellitus

Sari Isilay Kalan , Durmaz Senay Arikan , Bozdogan Onder , Kocak Mukadder , Cosar Ramazan

Introduction: Scleredema is a rare skin disease, clinically presents as diffuse, painless induration, and thickening of skin. It primarily affects the upper part of body and usually occurs in association with diabetes mellitus, infections or monoclonal gammopathy. We discussed a case of scleredema in patient with history of diabetes mellitus.Case report: A 54-year-old woman with history of long-standing, poorly-controlled diabetes mellitus, hypertension,...

High mean platelet volume in morbid obesity

Durmaz Senay Arikan , Bacanli Zehra , Carlioglu Ayse , Cifci Aydin , Arslan Abdulmuttalip

Introduction and aim: The incidence of atherosclerotic vascular disease is high in obesity. Our aim is to determine the mean platelet volume (MPV) as a new indicator of atherosclerosis in morbid obesity.Materials and methods: Thirty-three patients with morbid obesity who applied to endocrinology department (mean age 41.5±11.3 years, body weight 118.2±16.9 kg and BMI: 45.9±7.2 kg/m2) and 39 age-matched (mean age 35.3±13.1 ye...

Neutrophil/lymphocytes ratio in patients who have hypogonadotropic hypogodanism

Keskin Havva , Kaya Yasemin , Cadirci Kenan , Gozcu Hakan , Ziypak Elif , Arikan Senay , Carlioglu Ayse

Introduction: The effects of sex steroids on lymphocytes count and functions are well known and it is propounded that autoimmune diseases more common in women. NLO index is an indicator of inflammative situation. In this study, it has been aimed that neutrophil/lymphocytes ratio (NLO) calculation by determining neutrophil/lymphocytes values in patients who diagnosed as hypogonadotropic hypogodanism and searching that whether there is significant difference between healthy grou...

Thyroid autoimmunity may effect on mean platelet volume

Kalan Isilay , Durmaz Senay Arikan , Yavuz Seyma , Carlioglu Ayse , Cosar Ramazan , Cifci Aydin

Aim: Mean platelet volume (MPV) is considered a new indicator of atherosclerosis. Activated platelets and subclinical inflammation predispose to create for atherosclerotic heart disease. Larger platelets are metabolically more active than smaller ones and have more protrombotic potential. We have recently demonstrated that MPV levels in HashimotoÂ’s patients tend to be higher than healthy controls even if in euthyroid state. In present study we aimed to investigate a relat...
