A Neurological Disease Mimicking Central Hypothyroidism: MCT8 Deficiency

Demirbas Ozgecan , Eren Erdal , Tarim Omer

Introduction: Monocarboxylate transporter 8 (MCT8) is necessary for the transport of T3 to neurons. The case presented here is a male infant with neuromotor retardation initially treated for central hypothyroidism who showed no benefit from treatment and a final diagnosis of MCT8 deficiency was made.Case report: A male infant at 13 months of age was brought to the clinic because he was unable to sit without support. The perinatal history revealed that he...

The retrospective/blind glucose monitoring (bCGM) system is valuable tool for hyperglycemic and hypoglycemic states

Demirbas Ozgecan , Denkboy Ongen Yasemin , Eren Erdal

Introduction: The retrospective/blind glucose monitoring (bCGM) system or glucose sensors commonly used for type 1 diabetes management. The approach to hyperglycemic and hypoglycemic states is an urgent and essential issue in terms of diagnosis/treatment. Many tests are performed for the diagnostic process. We aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of bCGM (iPro™2 system) in the follow-up and treatment of patients to our clinics with hypoglycemia/hyperglyce...

Evaluation of AGP Reports in Patients with Type 1 Diabetes Using Intermittently Viewed Continuous Glucose Measurement System (iCGM)

Eren Erdal , Ongen Yasemin Denkboy , Demirbas Ozgecan , Tarim Omer

Introduction: Reduction in glycemic variability and HbA1c levels are achieved by the use of continuous glucose measurement systems (CGM) in the patient with Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Intermittently viewed CGM (iCGM) using flash technology have been used increasingly by diabetics and their families because of practicality. Evaluating of ambulatory glucose profiles (AGP) is very important in the management of T1DM.Aim and Me...

Eren Erdal , Celebi Solmaz , Sali Enes , Topac Tuncay , Tarim Omer

Background: Mucormycosis which is an invasive fungal disease and commonly seen in immunocompromised patients is very rare in the diabetic children.Case report: We present a case with type 1 diabetes with mucormycosis. A 14-year-old male patient was referred to our department due to polyuria, polydipsia, weight loss, headache, altered consciousness, fever, and rhinorrhea. After the diabetic ketoasidosis treatment, left facial paralysis, anisocoria, and pt...

SEMA3A gene variant may cause situs inversus, incomplete cleft palate, and congenital pituitary hormone deficiency

Eren Erdal , Tezcan Unlu Havva , Denkboy Ongen Yasemin , Cecener Gulsah

Introduction: Congenital multiple pituitary hormone deficiency (CMPHD) is a clinical condition that manifests in the early years of life. In most cases, pituitary stalk interruption syndrome (PSIS) can be detected by MR imaging. The current study presents a case with a novel candidate pathogenic gene Semaphorin 3A (SEMA3A) in CMPHD by whole-exome sequencing (WES).Materials and Methods: Genomic DNA was extracted from the ...

Pituitary Stalk Interruption Syndrome (PSIS) is Not a Rare Cause of the Congenital Hypopituitarism

Eren Erdal , Yazici Zeynep , Demirbas Ozgecan , Gulleroglu Nadide Basak , Tarım Omer

Aim: Pituitary hypoplasia, empty sella syndrome, and ectopic neurohypophysis are common causes of pituitary MRI of the patient with congenital hypopituitarism. We aimed to search clinical and radiological examination of the patient with congenital hypopituitarism.Method: We evaluated age, diagnosis, laboratory evaluation, hormone deficiencies, accompanying diseases, and MR images of the patients with multiple pituitary hormone deficiency.<p class="ab...

Wolcott-Rallison Syndrome: New Mutations and Report of Two Cases

Eren Erdal , Cakir Esra Deniz Papatya , Bozdemir Sefika Elmas , Celebi Solmaz , Julier Cecile , Saglam Halil , Tarim Omer

Background: Wolcott-Rallison syndrome (WRS) is a rare, autosomal recessive disease and characterized by early-onset diabetes, spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia, short stature, osteopenia, acute liver failure, and neurological deficit. It results from mutation in a gene of the eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2-α kinase 3 (EIF2AK3).Objective and hypotheses: We report two WRS patients diagnosed in infantile period.Me...
