  • Epicardial Adipose Tissue Thickness as a Reliable Marker of Increased Cardiovascular Risk in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

    Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) is a distinct visceral adipose tissue that is present in between the visceral pericardium and myocardium, in which the coronary arteries are lodged. This tissue releases several inflammatory and atherogenic mediators which lead to the initiation and/or progression of coronary atherosclerosis ...

  • Association of Diabetes and Severe COVID-19 Outcomes: A Rapid Review and Meta-Analysis

    Addressing the urgent need for evidence on diabetes as a serious comorbidity for severe illness and death from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), we investigated the association between diabetes and COVID-19 disease severity in patients hospitalized due to COVID-19.

  • Effects of Sodium-Glucose Cotransporter 2 Inhibitors on Hepatic Fibrosis in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes: A Chart-Based Analysis

    The presence of nonalcoholic fatty liver diseases (NAFLDs) and type 2 diabetes was associated with elevated risks of cardiovascular events as well as the progression of NAFLD to fibrosis/cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.

  • Effects of Policosanol in Patients With Metabolic Syndrome: A Six-Month Study

    The metabolic syndrome comprises a set of cardiovascular risk factors represented by obesity of central distribution, dyslipidemias, glucose metabolism abnormalities and arterial hypertension, closely associated with insulin resistance. The aim of this study is to investigate in the medium term the effects of policosanol in patients with metabolic syndrome, as well as its safety and tolerability.

  • Acute Pancreatitis in a Patient With Parathyroid Carcinoma

    Parathyroid carcinoma is a rare endocrine malignancy. Clinical features of parathyroid carcinoma are mainly due to the effects of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). Hypercalcemia produced by primary or secondary hyperparathyroidism is a rare and unclear cause of acute pancreatitis.







When to Consider an Inborn Error of Metabolism in Adults?
Inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) are a group of disorders that are often erroneously assumed to be the playing field of pediatricians only. This misconception combined with the rare nature of IEMs explains why there is often a serious delay in the diagnosis of an adult-onset IEM, which can have detrimental consequences. Full Text

Total Calcium and Ionized Calcium (pH = 7.4) Tests Are Equal When Screening Patients for Hypercalcemia at Admission in the Emergency Department: A Retrospective Descriptive Study
Ionized calcium (pH = 7.4) (CaI) is a laborious test compared to tests for total calcium (CaT). However, CaI is the biologically active part of calcium in the blood and is therefore often considered the most relevant measure of calcium status. Full Text

Key Clinical Image


An Unusual Complication of Cabergoline Treatment of Macroprolactinomas
Dopamine agonist (DA) treatment is the first choice treatment of prolactinomas. Optic chiasm prolapse with secondary visual deterioration is an unusual and rare complication of DA treatment. A 40-year-old man with giant prolactinoma was successfully treated by cabergoline. After 14 months, he presented with a visual impairment with no ophthalmologic anomalies that could explain this worsening. Full Text
