RESULTS: There was no(More)
Blood sugar and serum insulin levels in the fasting state and following an oral glucose load in children with protein-energy malnutrition (PEM) were studied. Twenty-nine children with PEM (15 marasmus, 7 kwashiorkor, and 7 marasmic kwashiorkor) and eight healthy children aged between 6 and 60 months were the subjects of the study. Fasting samples were(More)
Klinefelter syndrome (KS) is the most common chromosomal aneuploidy in males. It is very difficult to diagnose this disorder in childhood due to absence of significant manifestations before puberty. These patients usually present with tall stature. We report a case of KS with short stature due to growth hormone deficiency. The boy's height was below the 3rd(More)
AIM To evaluate the effect of hypothyroidism (both overt and subclinical) on cognitive function using latencies of P300 auditory evoked potentials (AEPs). P300 latency suggests that shorter latency times are related to better cognitive performance. P300 latencies were also done after thyroxine replacement to see the effect of treatment on cognitive(More)
Fifteen children with protein-energy malnutrition and eight healthy children between the ages of 6 months and 60 months were studied for blood glucose and serum insulin levels in the fasting state and 120 minutes following oral glucose load. The measurements were repeated after normalization of the body weight following 6 weeks of nutritional(More)
Co-occurrence of adrenal incidentaloma with hypertension calls for evaluation of endocrine causes including pheochromocytoma, Cushing's disease, and primary aldosteronism. We are reporting 40-years-old man who presented with hypertension and adrenal mass. He had elevated metanephrines, histology of resected adrenal mass revealed adrenal myelolipoma, and(More)
BACKGROUND Management guidelines about the thyroid disease in pregnancy are silent about the postpartum course of new onset subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH). Hence, we analyzed the 2 years outcome of SCH diagnosed during pregnancy. MATERIALS AND METHODS We conducted this retrospective study using the medical records of patients with new onset SCH during(More)
Cutting setons have been used in complicated perirectal sepsis with good effect, although there is a moderately high incidence of fecal leakage after their use. The aim of this study was to compare a modified cutting seton, which repaired the internal anal sphincter muscle and re-routed the seton through the intersphincteric space, with a conventional(More)
