AIM The aim of this study was to assess adiponectin, visfatin, HOMA-IR, glucose and triglyceride levels in term, preterm and extremely low birth weight (ELBW) babies. Each of these three groups was subdivided into two groups as small-for-gestational age (SGA), and appropriate-for-gestational age (AGA). 30 term, 30 preterm and 30 extremely low birth weight(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between four circulating adipocytokines (apelin, vaspin, visfatin, adiponectin) and markers of insulin sensitivity, in the context of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in adolescents. SUBJECTS AND METHODS 48, obese, adolescent girls (mean age: 15.6±3.4 years, mean body mass index standard(More)
AIM The aim of the present study was to analyze the relationship between epicardial adipose tissue thickness (EATT) and echocardiographic parameters, such as carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT), myocardial performance index (MPI), left ventricular (LV) systolic and diastolic function, and LV mass index in adolescents with obesity. PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
Obesity and overweight are among the most serious health problems in western societies and an increasing problem in developing countries. Recent studies indicate an important role of adipose tissue hormones, or "adipokines", in obesity-associated complications. To investigate the relation of two circulating adipokines (visfatin, adiponectin) with markers of(More)
Cystic hygroma, also known as lymphangioma, are unusual congenital malformations of the lymphatic system. Cystic lymphangioma is a rare lesion in the breast of children. Only a few cases have been documented in literature. We report a rare case of a 5-year-old boy presented with a gradually enlarging, painless breast mass which was identified(More)
Preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) is defined as rupture of membrane that happens before the onset of labor and 37 weeks. Subclinical intrauterine infection is major etiological factor in the pathogenesis that increases mortality and morbidity associated with PPROM. This study was performed to evaluate the levels of maternal serum urokinase(More)
Cystic fibrosis (CF) results from mutations in the gene that encodes the CF transmembrane conductance regulator protein located on chromosome 7. This gene encodes a protein that functions as a cyclic adenosine monophosphate-regulated chloride channel. Abnormal function of the channel results in aberrant conductance across the apical
Congenital longitudinal deficiency of the fibula (CLDF) is the most common congenital defect involving the long bones. There have been many different classifications developed for fibula deficiency. Achterman and Kalamchi's classification is most commonly used and will be described. Our case was complied with type II. Other anomalies includes cardiac(More)
