AbstractAbstract PDF
BACKGROUND
This study was performed to evaluate the frequency and clinical characteristics of patients with active acromegaly and who show discordance of the growth hormone (GH) level and the insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) level. METHODS: We reviewed the medical records of the patients who were diagnosed with acromegaly between 01/01/1995 and 6/30/2007 at Seoul National University Hospital. We selected only the patients whose basal GH and IGF-I levels were available. We investigated the pre- and post-operative clinical characteristics, as well as the blood concentrations of GH and IGF-I. The concordance rate between the two hormones was examined. The patients were considered to have active disease on the basis of their IGF-I levels above the normal range, after adjustment for age and gender, and their mean basal GH value was > or = 2.5 microgram/L. The hormone levels and the clinical parameters were compared between the hormone concordant and discordant groups. RESULTS: We reviewed the preoperative records of 103 acromegalic patients, and these patients met the above-mentioned criteria. 53 postoperative patients who were not cured by operation were monitored without them receiving radiation or medical therapy. Both the basal GH and IGF-I levels were above normal in 103 patients preoperatively, and the discordant rate was 0% (0/103 cases). Postoperatively, the discordant rate between the two hormones was increased to 30.2% (16/53 cases). Age, gender, body mass index and tumor size were insignificantly different between the concordant and discordant groups. However, postoperative residual tumors were less frequently observed in the discordant group (P = 0.006). CONCLUSION: For the patients with acromegaly, unlike the 0% discordance preoperatively, 30.2% of patients showed a discrepancy between their GH and IGF-I levels postoperatively. The patients who had hormonal discrepancy were less likely to have residual tumors after operation. Considering the frequency of this hormonal discrepancy, both hormone levels should be measured to evaluate the disease activity after treatment. Further, oral glucose tolerance testing should be performed and especially for the patients with an increased GH level, but who have a normal IGF-I concentration.

AbstractAbstract PDF
AIMS: Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) is associated with insulin resistance, and is independent of the general metabolic measures. Gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) is regarded as a predictor of diabetes mellitus. We analyzed which of ALT or GGT is better tool to preestimate the development of metabolic syndrome. METHOD: A total of 1203 Koreans who visited the Institute of Health in Pusan National University Hospital from January 2005 to August 2006 were enrolled in this cross-sectional study. Their median age was 51 years old, and the prevalence of metabolic syndrome was 16.4% (n = 197). We excluded the subjects with diabetes mellitus, hypertension and viral hepatitis or those subjects with a level of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) or gamma-glutamyltransferase (r-GGT) > 80 IU/L. RESULTS: For all the patients in the metabolic syndrome group, the median homeostatic assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR), the waist circumference, the fasting blood glucose level, the systolic and diastolic blood pressure were all associated with the ALT level (P < 0.05). For the nonmetabolic syndrome group, all the metabolic risk factors were associated with the ALT level (P < 0.05). On logistic regression analysis, after correction for age, alcohol intake, HOMA-IR and body mass index, the logALT maintained a highly predictive value for metabolic syndrome, and this was better than the logGGT [odds ratio (OR) of logALT: 18.489, odds ratio of logGGT: 2.024] (P < 0.001). The risk of developing metabolic syndrome was significantly higher in the above 50 percentile and the above 75 percentile of ALT than in the lowest quartile. [for men - OR: 3.6; 95% confidence interval (CI), 2.2-5.9; OR: 6.9; 95% CI: 4.3-10.9] [for women - OR: 2.7; 95% CI: 1.5-4.7; OR: 6.5; 95% CI: 3.8-11] (P < 0.001). The cut-off value of ALT by the ROC curve was 24 IU/L for men (sensitivity: 64.3%, specificity: 66%, negative predictive value: 99.5%) and 20 IU/L for women (sensitivity: 78.9%, specificity: 61.4%, negative predictive value: 84.9%). CONCLUSIONS: Even although patients can have an ALT level that's included within the upper normal level, we may consider the probability that these patients will have metabolic syndrome. Furthermore, in our analysis, the ALT level is a better predictor of metabolic syndrome than the GGT level.

AbstractAbstract PDF
BACKGROUND
The purpose of this study was to assess the prevalence of thyroid nodules in healthy adults without a history of thyroid disease and the results of fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). METHODS: We retrospectively studied 4,832 adults (2,427 women, 2,405 men) over the age of 20 who had visited our health care center from January, 2005, to March, 2008. Subjects with previous thyroid disease were excluded. All were screened by thyroid ultrasonography and FNAC was performed on large or potentially malignant nodules. RESULTS: Thyroid nodules were present in 686 women (28.3%) and 396 men (16.5%), with a female predominance (odds ratio = 1.47, 95% CI = 1.35~1.60). The prevalence of a thyroid nodule was significantly correlated with age in both women and men (P < 0.001). Multinodularity also increased according to age in both groups. Ninety patients were tested with conventional FNAC and 195 underwent ultrasonography-guided FNAC. The rate of inadequate cytology by ultrasonographic guidance was lower than by freehand methods, and the total rate of malignant cytology per patient was 17.9%. Ultrasonographic characteristics that significantly correlated with histologically-confirmed papillary carcinoma included a solid component, hypoechogenecity, irregular margin, and the presence of microcalcification or macrocalcification. CONCLUSION: The prevalence of thyroid nodules detected by ultrasonography was 28.3% in healthy women and 16.5% in healthy men population. The prevalence and multinodularity was significantly correlated with age in both groups. It's useful to examine thyroid by ultrasonography because of detecting more nodules, providing guidance of FNAC, achieving more adequate sampling and not missing small malignant nodules.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Methimazole-induced agranulocytosis is a rare, but critical side effect that should be recognized as soon as possible since it may induce a life-threatening condition when it was overlooked. Histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis is also called Kikuchi's lymphadenitis, and this is a rare form of lymphadenitis with a self-limited clinical course and this illness is accompanied by cervical lymph node enlargement, fever and malaise. We recently experienced a patient with methimazole-induced agranulocytosis and Graves' disease, and this was accompanied by Kikuchi's disease; the patient presented with sore throat and multiple enlarged cervical lymph nodes. To the best of our knowledge, there is no previous report on methimazole-induced agranulocytosis combined with Kikuchi's disease. Therefore, we report here on this very rare case along with a brief review of the relevant literature.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Hyperthyroidism combined with rhabdomyolysis is extremely rare. There are only 6 reported cases of hyperthyroidism accompanied with rhabdomyolysis in the medical literature. Rhabdomyolysis is a syndrome involving the breakdown of skeletal muscle, and this causes myoglobin and intracellular protein to leak into the circulation. The causes of rhabdomyolysis include trauma, electrolyte abnormality, infection, drug, toxin and hypothyroidism. We report here on a patient who presented with thyrotoxic periodic paralysis and rhabdomyolysis with hypokalemia. He complained of lower leg paralysis along with muscle tenderness, and the laboratory findings showed elevated creatine kinase (CK) levels. After treatment by hydration, potassium replacement and drug medication, including propylthiouracil and beta-blocker, his CK levels were normalized and his symptoms were much improved. For patient with thyrotoxic periodic paralysis and muscle tenderness, the possibility of rhabdomyolysis should be clarified by examining the CK levels.

AbstractAbstract PDF
The diffuse sclerosing variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (DSPTC) is a rare histological subtype characterized by diffuse involvement of one or both thyroid lobes, widespread lymphatic permeation, prominent fibrosis, squamous metaplasia, abundant psammoma body and lymphatic infiltration. This subtype usually occurs in young female, and exhibits a higher frequency of cervical and distant metastasis. DSPTC clinically resembles Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and often delays the correct diagnosis. We experienced two patients with DSPTC: the one patient presented with a neck mass lasting for a month, and in the other patient, a thyroid lesion was incidentally found during a medical examination.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Painful Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) is a subtype of HT characterized by thyroid pain with overt elevation in inflammatory markers and thyroid autoantibodies. The differential diagnosis of painful HT with subacute granulomatous thyroiditis is often difficult because initial clinical findings are very similar. Findings that favor the diagnosis of painful HT include preceding history of chronic goiter or autoimmune thyroid diseases, a high titer of thyroid autoantibodies, and repeated painful attacks even with chronic glucocorticoid therapy. Surgery is often needed to relieve the thyroid pain.

AbstractAbstract PDF
MELAS (mitochondrial encephalopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke-like episodes) syndrome is characterized by stroke-like episodes before the age of 40, encephalopathy, seizures, dementia and lactic acidosis, and is caused by mutations in mitochondrial DNA. Diabetes mellitus and cardiac involvement are also frequently seen in MELAS syndrome. It is a classic mitochondrial disorder that shows a slow, chronic, progressive course, and presents with multiple organ involvement including the central nervous system, skeletal muscle, eye, cardiac muscle and gastrointestinal system.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Paragangliomas are extra-adrenal pheochromocytomas that arise from specialized neural crest cells. They are distributed anywhere from the upper neck to the pelvic floor, and they are classified on the basis of their anatomic origin. Functioning paragangliomas can cause the same clinical manifestations as pheochromocytoma, such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus, hyperadrenergic spells and so on. We experienced a retroperitoneal paraganglioma that was found in 66 year-old male who suffered from intractable constipation, and his constipation was caused by paralytic ileus and uncontrolled hyperglycemia. After he was diagnosed, removal of the paraganglioma was done and his clinical symptoms and sustained hyperglycemia were successfully resolved.
