Granulomatous hypophysitis (GrHy) is a relatively rare inflammatory disease compared with lymphocytic hypophysitis. Only a few cases with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings have been reported to date. We describe the MRI findings for two patients with GrHy with unusual histories and clinical outcomes.
The thyroid gland is an endocrine organ composed of stable cells. It is well known that regenerative capacity of the thyroid tissue is minimal. Various degrees of morphologic alterations do occur in chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis (CLT), including Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Eighty-five CLT cases were analyzed for these morphologic alterations. Small,(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated the frequency of clinical apparent amyloid deposition, clinical features and outcome in our rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. METHODS Medical records of 1415 RA patients were examined. During routine follow-up, RA patients with proteinuria on urinalysis, underwent rectal biopsy. RESULTS Eleven patients (0.78%) were diagnosed(More)
Chest wall hamartomas are extremely rare. Frequently mesenchymal hamartomas are presented as a single mass and contain some primitive mesenchymal elements such as chondroid and trabecular bone structures. A 60-year-old man presented to hospital with chest pain. Thirteen years earlier, his CXR and thoracic CT showed three masses on the right and two masses(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the relation between uptake ratios of Tc-99m sestamibi (MIBI) and tumor volume, serum biochemical values (i-PTH, Ca, P) and oxyphil cell content. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study population consisted of 19 patients (2 M, 17 F; mean +/- SD: 47 +/- 12 y). Anterior planar images of the neck and chest were acquired(More)
Rhabdomyolysis ranges from an asymptomatic illness with elevated creatine kinase levels to a life-threatening condition associated with extreme elevations in creatine kinase, electrolyte imbalances, acute renal failure, and disseminated intravascular coagulation. The most common causes are crush injury, overexertion, alcohol abuse, certain medicines, and(More)
Electrical injuries induce progressive tissue loss. We evaluated the effect of lidocaine on tissue necrosis after electrical burn injuries. Forty-two male Wistar albino rats (250-300 g) were divided into 3 groups [Group A (n=6), control group without an electrical burn injury; and Groups B (n=18) and C (n=18), electrical burn injury groups without and with(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the expression of Bcl-2 and Ki-67 in tamoxifen (TAM)-associated endometrial polyps and postmenopausal polyps. MATERIAL AND METHODS For this purpose, a retrospective analysis of paraffin-embedded specimens was carried out. Polyps of 20 postmenopausal and 14 TAM-treated patients, 11 simple endometrial(More)
