  • [Surgical treatment of ACTH-ectopic syndrome]. [Review]
    Khirurgiia (Mosk). 2019Krylov VV, Dobreva EA, … Levkin VV
  • ACTH-ectopic syndrome is a severe, multiple-symptom disease characterized by secretion of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by ectopic tumor, increased release of adrenal cortical hormones and clinical picture of hypercorticism. Diagnosis and treatment of ACTH-ectopic syndrome is still difficult problem despite the achievements of modern medicine. There are several unresolved issues including op…
  • An update on novel mechanisms of primary aldosteronism. [Review]
    J Endocrinol. 2015 Feb; 224(2):R63-77.Zennaro MC, Boulkroun S, Fernandes-Rosa F
  • Primary aldosteronism (PA) is the most common and curable form of secondary hypertension. It is caused in the majority of cases by either unilateral aldosterone overproduction due to an aldosterone-producing adenoma (APA) or by bilateral adrenal hyperplasia. Recent advances in genome technology have allowed researchers to unravel part of the genetic abnormalities underlying the development of APA…
  • Purkinje cell cytoplasmic antibody type 1 (anti-Yo) autoimmunity in a child with Down syndrome. [Case Reports]
    JAMA Neurol. 2014 Mar; 71(3):347-9.Philipps G, Alisanski SB, … McKeon A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Solid organ neoplasms are uncommon among patients with Down syndrome, but organ-specific autoimmune diseases are common. In our patient, Down syndrome-related impaired T regulatory lymphocyte function (previously reported) may have resulted in both enhanced immunity against an undetected solid neoplasm and paraneoplastic neurological (PCA-1) autoimmunity.
  • [Preoperative diagnostics in patients with adrenal tumors]. [Journal Article]
    Folia Med Cracov. 2005; 46(1-2):89-97.Gołkowski F, Jabrocka-Hybel A, … Zajac M
  • The aim of the study was analysis of preoperative diagnostics of patients who underwent laparoscopic adrenalectomy. In the preoperative diagnostics in 10 patients (22.2%) pheochromocytoma was found, in 8 (17.8%) Conn's syndrome, in 4 (8.9%) Cushing's syndrome and in 1 (2.2%) adrenal virilization. Full accordance between histopathological findings and preoperative diagnosis was achieved in 91% of …
  • Surgically correctable hypertension caused by primary aldosteronism. [Review]
    Best Pract Res Clin Endocrinol Metab. 2006 Sep; 20(3):385-400.Rossi GP
  • Surgically correctable forms of primary aldosteronism are generally held to be less common than forms requiring medical therapy. However, with the availability of improved diagnostic techniques and the adoption of a systematic and thorough diagnostic work-up they can be identified more commonly than expected. Adrenal vein sampling (AVS) for measurement of cortisol and aldosterone has emerged as t…
  • Hyperadrenocorticism in a dog due to ectopic secretion of adrenocorticotropic hormone. [Case Reports]
    Domest Anim Endocrinol. 2005 Apr; 28(3):338-48.Galac S, Kooistra HS, … Meij BP
  • Spontaneous hyperadrenocorticism in dogs is known to be the result of excessive secretion of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by the pituitary gland or excessive autonomous glucocorticoid secretion by an adrenocortical tumor. Here, we report on an 8-year-old German shepherd dog in which ACTH-dependent hyperadrenocorticism was a result of ectopic ACTH secretion and could be related to an abdomin…
