  • Diabetes Mellitus and the Cardiovascular System

    Diabetes mellitus (DM) is an epidemic which affects close to 100 million patients worldwide; the majority being type 2 diabetes mellitus. The rising incidence has resulted in a proportional increase in the frequency of cardiovascular disease attributable to DM, as revealed by various population-based studies.

  • Global Gene Expression Profiling in Omental Adipose Tissue of Morbidly Obese Diabetic African Americans

    Adipose tissues play an important role in the pathophysiology of obesity-related diseases including type 2 diabetes (T2D).

  • Myelolipomatous Adrenal Adenoma and Adrenal Scintigraphy

    Adrenal myelolipomas are usually benign and non-functioning masses. On the other hand, adrenal myelolipomatous adenoma that may mimic adrenal myelolipoma on conventional imaging may be a rare cause of subclinical Cushing’s disease.

  • Autonomic Diabetic Neuropathy Impairs Glucose and Dipeptidyl Peptidase 4 Inhibitor-Regulated Glucagon Concentration in Type 1 Diabetic Patients

    ipeptidyl peptidase 4 inhibitors (DPP4i) could exert their glucagonostatic action through a functional autonomic nervous system independently from insulin secretion.

  • Olfactory Sulcus Hypoplasia Images of a Case With Kallmann Syndrome

    Kallmann syndrome is a form of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism accompanied by anosmia or hyposmia. MR images of midline defects in Kallmann syndrome were rarely seen in the literature.







Think About the Application of Vitamin E to Heterozygous Familial Hypobetalipoproteinemia to Prevent Liver Cirrhosis and Hepatocellular Carcinoma

Familial hypobetalipoproteinemia (FHBL) is a rare genetic disease characterized by low levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and apolipoprotein (apo) B. In homozygous FHBL, dietary fat restriction and long-term high-dose vitamin E and A supplementation are recommended to prevent the progression of neuromuscular and retinal degenerative disease Full Text

Modified Fine-Needle Aspiration Biopsy for Calcitonin, Procalcitonin and Carcinoembryonic Antigen Levels in the Diagnosis of Thyroid Nodules With Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma

The diagnostic tests have low sensitivities in detecting medullary thyroid cancer (MTC). We describe a modified fine-needle thyroid nodule biopsy (MFNB) technique that improved the diagnostic accuracy. MFNB was performed in three patients with MTC. MFNB was more confirmatory for diagnosing MTC than conventional FNB. Determining Ct, PCt, and CEA levels in MFNB aspirate samples may improve the diagnostic accuracy. Full Text

Teriparatide Prevented Near Atypical Femur Fracture by Reducing Cortical Thickening in a Symptomatic Patient With Prolonged Use of Oral Bisphosphonate: A Case Report
Long-term bisphosphonate (BP) treatment is associated with adverse event of atypical femur fracture (AFF) due to their long-lasting unique bone-seeking properties, and subsequent uptake by osteoclasts results in sustained inhibition of bone resorption even after their cessation. We report a case of postmenopausal women who presented with pain and severe femoral cortical thickening on alendronate for 10 years, but with no signs of obvious radiolucent fracture line on radiograph and bone marrow edema on magnetic resonance imaging representing impending AFF.
