AbstractAbstract PDF
BACKGROUND
The aim of this study is to verify the effects of fenofibrate monotherapy and fenofibrate combined with exercise for improving metabolic syndrome and hepatic steatosis. METHODS: Thirty-four weeks old OLETF rats (Otsuka Long-Evans Tokushima Fatty Rats, n = 20) were divided four groups: the regular diet group (n = 5, DD group), the exercise group (n = 5, DE group), the fenofibrate (100 mg/kg) treated group (n = 5, DF group) and the combination treatment group {fenofibrate and exercise (n = 5, EF group)}. After 5 weeks of treatment, blood was drawn for measuring the blood glucose, insulin, lipid and leptin levels. All the subjects were sacrificed for assessment of their body adiposity and hepatic steatosis. RESULTS: The total amount of food intake, body weight and total body weight of the rat were significantly decreased in the EF and DF groups compared to the DD group. The plasma triglyceride and glucose levels were significantly decreased in the EF and DF groups compared to the DD group. The HOMA-IR of EF, DF and DE groups were significantly decreased compared with that of the DD group. The plasma leptin levels of the EF and DF groups were significantly decreased compared with those of the DD and DE groups. The hepatic steatosis index was significantly decreased in the EF and DF groups compared to the DD and DE groups. CONCLUSION: Fenofibrate monotherapy was effective to control three major components (obesity, hypertriglyceridemia and hyperglycemia) of metabolic syndrome and hepatic steatosis in OLETF rats. Exercise combined with fenofibrate treatment showed an additional effect compared to that of fenofibrate monotherapy.

AbstractAbstract PDF
BACKGROUND
RET/PTC rearrangement and mutations of BRAF and ras are well-known oncogenes involved in the pathogenesis of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). The prevalence of RET/PTC rearrangement and BRAF mutations were 0~13% and 66~83% in Korean patients with PTC, respectively. We evaluated the prevalence of ras mutations in surgical specimens of PTC, and we compared them with the patients' clinical features. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: We included the surgical specimens of 49 PTCs and a few follicular thyroid carcinomas (FTCs) and follicular adenomas (FAs) as positive controls. Polymerase chain reaction, single strand conformation polymorphism and direct sequence analysis were consecutively performed to detect ras mutations. RESULTS: No mutations of the ras oncogenes were detected in 49 PTCs. However, heterozygous mutations of the ras oncogenes were found in a FTC and FA as positive controls, respectively. CONCLUSION: These findings suggested that ras mutation is not or rarely related to the tumorigenesis of PTCs in Koreans. Therefore, BRAF mutations and RET/PTC rearrangement, rather than ras mutation, might contribute the development of PTC in Koreans.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone is the most common cause of hyponatremia in hospitalized patients. It is defined as retention of water, loss of sodium and inappropriately concentrated urine in euvolemic patients with normal renal and adrenal function. A 26-year old male was admitted due to weight loss and fever that he had experienced for the previous 1 month. The chest X-ray and CT scan of lung showed about 2.5x1.2 cm lymph node enlargement at the left hilum and multiple lymph node enlargements. Thoracoscopic biopsy revealed tuberculosis. During treatment with antituberculosis drugs, the serum sodium was 125 mEq/L, the serum osmolality was 263 mOsm/kg, the urine osmolality was 577 mOsm/kg, and the urine sodium concentration was 177 mEq/L. He was treated by fluid restriction and hypertonic saline infusion, but he did not improve. Brain CT scan showed tuberculous meningitis with hydrocephalus. He fully recovered after undergoing ventriculoperitoneal shunt. We report here on a case of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone syndrome complicated by tuberculous meningitis that was refractory to antituberculosis drugs.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Graves' disease is one of the common autoimmune diseases, and it has been controlled by such antithyroid drugs as propylthiouracil (PTU) or methimazole. There are a number of side effects, including agranulocytosis, skin rash, hepatotoxicity, fever, arthralgia and a lupus-like syndrome during treatment. PTU has been recently observed to be associated with the development of antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) positive vasculitis, and this can cause diffuse alveolar hemorrhage. A 32-year-old woman with Graves' disease had been treated with PTU for 4 years, and she had experienced intermittent hemoptysis for 2 weeks before she visited the hospital. Both myeloperoxidase and proteinase 3 ANCA were positive without other organ systems being involved. She was diagnosed with PTU-induced vasculitis. Cessation of PTU and administration of corticosteroids improved the clinical manifestations.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Systemic sclerosis is associated with a broad spectrum of autoimmune thyroid diseases. The association between systemic scleroderma and hypothyroidism is well established. However, there have been very few reports concerning the association between hyperthyroidism and systemic scleroderma. We experienced a patient with Graves' disease who presented with muscle weakness and the patient was finally diagnosed with systemic sclerosis via pathological examination of the muscle. We describe here a rare case of systemic sclerosis associated with Graves` disease.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Patients with Down's syndrome have an increased prevalence of autoimmune disorders that affect both the endocrine and non-endocrine organs. The most common thyroid abnormality in Down's syndrome is subclinical hypothyroidism (12.5~32.5%). The occurrence of Down's syndrome in conjunction with hyperthyroidism is rare (0.6~2.5%). A 35-year old female was transferred to our hospital because of hypotension and mental change. She had suffered from a poor oral intake and general weakness for the previous 1 week. She had been admitted local hospital and was diagnosed as hyperthyroidism. On the third day after admission, she lost consciousness and was then transferred to University Hospital. Physical examination revealed hypotension (76/39 mmHg), sinus tachycardia (111/min) and tachypnea (28/min). The upward-outward slant of the palpebral fissures, epicanthal folds, low-set ears, short stature and clinodactyly were all identified. The thyroid gland was not enlarged and there was no evidence of ophthalmopathy. The serum free T4 concentration was 3.32 ng/dL, the T3 level was 212 ng/dL and the TSH level was 0.01 uIU/mL. She was positive for TBII. Abdominal computed tomography showed ascites and pneumoperitoneum. Primary closure was done on the duodenal ulcer perforation site. She was treated with transrectal propylthiouracil and intravenous esmolol. Chromosomal analysis revealed 47XX and 21 trisomy. She was finally diagnosed as Down's syndrome, Graves' disease and duodenal ulcer perforation. Her hyperthyroidism was controlled with PTU 100 mg after discharge.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Amiodarone is an iodinated benzofuran derivative, that is highly effective as an agent for the treatment of various cardiac arrhythmias; these arrthymias, range from paroxysmal atrial fibrillation to life-threatening ventricular tachyarrhythmias. Yet amiodarone is associated with several side effects that include dysfunction of liver, thyroid or various other organs. Two main forms of amiodarone induced thyrotoxicosis (AIT) have been described; type I AIT develops in an abnormal thyroid gland (nodular goiter, latent Graves' disease) and it is due to amiodarone-induced true hyperthyroidism; type II AIT occurs in an apparently normal thyroid gland and it is due to amiodarone-induced destructive thyroiditis. We recently experienced a case of type II thyrotoxicosis that was induced by amiodarone treatment for ventricular tachycardia after acute myocardial infarction. The symptoms of thyrotoxicosis were relieved after withdrawal of amiodarone and administering steroid. Type I AIT has often been reported on but type II AIT is relatively rare. We report here on a case of type II amiodarone induced thyrotoxicosis along with a literature review.

AbstractAbstract PDF
The origin of medullary thyroid carcinoma and papillary thyroid carcinoma are embryogenically different, so these tumors have been thought to be independent of each other. We experienced a case of concurrent medullary and papillary thyroid carcinoma in one patient. The patient underwent total thyroidectomy and both two tumors were located at different lobes, respectively. Both tumors showed their own characteristic pathologic and immunohistochemical findings. The patient's elevated calcitonin level returned to the normal range after operation and there has been no evidence of recurrence. It is still controversial whether the concurrency is just coincidental or it arises from activation of a common tumorigenic pathway.
