Solid organ transplant recipients, and in particular Kidney Transplant (KTx) patients, are at increased risk for developing thyroid cancers due to immunosuppression and improved long-term survival post-transplant. Using the HCUP NIS database, we compared mortality rate, disposition, LOS, and total hospital charge between KTx and Non-KTx patients following thyroidectomy for thyroid cancer during 2008-2014. Propensity score matching was performed using demographics, payer, income, hospital charact...

Prolactin is a hormone secreted by the anterior pituitary lactotrophs and is controlled by the influence of hypothalamic dopamine. PRL stimulates the proliferation and differentiation of mammary cells for lactation. There are many causes for hyperprolactinemia, including analytical, physiological, pharmacological, pathological and idiopathic causes. Macroprolactin is a significant analytical cause of hyperprolactinemia, and the most common cause of pathological hyperprolactinemia is prolactin se...

McCune Albright syndrome is a rare congenital disorder, which is classically defined by a triad associating a Fibrotic Dysplasia (DF) most often polyostotic, "cafe au lait" skin pigmentation and a hyperfunctioning endocrinopathy. "Cafe au lait" skin pigmentations are macules which are common and mostly the first manifestation of the disease, apparent at or shortly after birth. Fibrous Dysplasia (FD), which can involve any part and combination of the craniofacial, axial, and/or appendicular skele...

Thyroid diseases are prevalent in Malaysia. A community health survey was undertaken to improve community awareness of the risks of common non-communicable diseases such as thyroid disorders and the benefits of screening for prevention and early detection of these conditions. Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) is the main biomarker and initial test for thyroid dysfunction. However, no formal reference interval (RI) data for TSH is available in Malaysia and South East Asia. All TSH reference inter...

The incidence of thyroid cancer has increased in recent years. This increase may be due to the change of metabolic parameters in patients. This study was designed to clarify the association of malignancy of thyroid nodules with metabolic parameters. This study designed as a cross-sectional study between January 2018 and May 2018. Samples were collected from the patients by thyroid fine needle biopsy and patients who had thyroid surgery. Group 1 patients were pathologically benign patients; Group...

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine disorder, present in 5-13% women of reproductive age. The endocrine manifestations of PCOS include excess androgen production of ovarian and/or adrenal origin and arrested follicular development leading to chronic oligo- or anovulation. Long term health risks of women with PCOS include cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes mellitus and endometrial cancer. PCOS is diagnosed by chronic anovulation, polycystic ovaries on ultrasound and bioche...

Uterine sarcomas comprise a group of rare tumours with differing tumour pathobiology, natural history and response to clinical treatment. Diagnosis is often made following surgical treatment for presumed malignant mesenchymal tumours and benign tumours. Currently pre-operative diagnosis does not reliably distinguish between malignant mesenchymal tumours....

Folliculo-stellate cells (FSCs) are a non-endocrine population of sustentacular-like, star-shaped and follicle-forming cells, which contribute about 5-10% of elements from the anterior pituitary lobe. First identified with electron microscopy as non-hormone secreting accessory cells, light microscopy has revealed many of their cytophysiological features, and is known as positive for S-100 protein, a marker for FSCs. They are currently considered as functionally and phenotypically heterogeneous.....

The effect of race/ethnicity and smoking on diurnal variations in total serum testosterone level (T-TST) was evaluated by analyzing data from NHANES for 2011-2012 for adolescent and adult males. For adolescent males, diurnal variability in T-TST levels was substantially smaller among smokers than nonsmokers for non-Hispanic white (NHW) and Hispanics but the reverse was true for non-Hispanic black (NHB). For adult males, morning levels of T-TST were 21-31% higher than the T-TST levels during even...
