The adrenal glands are one of the most common sites of malignant tumor metastasis. However, metastatic adrenal carcinoma of unknown primary origin with localized adrenal gland involvement is an extremely rare condition. Herein, we reported two cases of carcinoma of unknown primary origin with isolated adrenal metastasis. In the first case, back pain was the trigger; while in the second case, the triggers were low fever and weight loss. Metabolic abnormalities such as hypertension and obesity wer...

Anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) is primarily produced by ovarian granulosa cells and contributes to follicle development. AMH is also produced in other tissues, including the brain and pituitary; however, its roles in these tissues are not well understood. In this study, we examined the effect of AMH on pituitary gonadotrophs. We detected AMH and AMH receptor type 2 expression in LβT2 cells. In these cells, the expression of FSHβ- but not α- and LHβ-subunits increased significantly as the concentra...

Diabetic nephropathy (DN), a frequent diabetes complication, has complex pathogenesis. Circular RNAs (circRNAs) circ_0000712 has been reported to be upregulated in kidney tissues and high glucose (HG)-inducted Mesangial cells (MCs). This study is designed to explore the role and mechanism of circ_0000712 in the HG-inducted MCs injury in DN. Circ_0000712, microRNA-879-5p (miR-879-5p), and SRY-Box Transcription Factor 6 (SOX6) levels were detected by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reactio...

Contrary to large multinodular goiters, reports on 131I radioiodine therapy (RIT) for Graves disease (GD) involving a large goiter are scarce. We retrospectively reviewed a total of 71 consecutive patients (25 males, 46 females) with GD involving a large goiter (>100 mL) who had received RIT in our clinic. Patients with a history of thyroid surgery or with large thyroid nodules and those who had dropped out less than one year after the initial RIT session were excluded. A fixed 131I activity of ...

Chromosome 22q11.2 deletion syndrome is a multisystem genetic disorder that presents with hypocalcemia due to congenital hypoparathyroidism; cardiovascular, renal, and facial anomalies; and skeletal defects. This syndrome is also associated with an increased risk of autoimmune disease. We report here on a 33-year-old Japanese woman with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome complicated by Graves' disease. The patient had facial abnormalities and a history of a surgical procedure for a submucous cleft palate...

The toxicity of certain novel perfluoroalkyl substances (PFCs) has attracted increasing attention. However, the toxic effects of sodium p-perfluorous nonenoxybenzene sulfonate (OBS) on the endocrine system have not been elucidated. In this study, OBS was added to the drinking water during the pregnancy and lactation of the healthy female mice at dietary levels of 0.0 mg/L (CON), 0.5 mg/L (OBS-L), and 5.0 mg/L (OBS-H). OBS exposure during the pregnancy and lactation resulted in the presence of OB...

Current histopathological diagnosis methods cannot distinguish the two types of thyroid carcinoma: clinically significant carcinomas with a potential risk of recurrence, metastasis, and cancer death, and clinically insignificant carcinomas with a slow growth rate. Both thyroid tumors are diagnosed as "carcinoma" in current pathology practice. The clinician usually recommends surgery to the patient and the patient often accepts it because of cancer terminology. The treatment for these clinically ...

Free triiodothyronine/free thyroxine (FT3/FT4) ratio is considered as an index of the activities of iodothyronine deiodinase types 1 and 2 (DIO1 and DIO2, respectively) and is reportedly associated with insulin resistance in euthyroid adults. Euthyroid women with polycystic ovary syndrome accompanied with insulin resistance have lesser deiodinase activities. Correspondingly, the serum insulin level in a fasted condition positively correlates with the FT3/FT4 ratio, and insulin depletion decrease...

Parathyroid carcinoma (PC) is a rare condition with propensity to relapse. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the sonographic findings of locoregional recurrences of parathyroid carcinoma, in order to facilitate diagnosis of this condition using ultrasound (US). This was a retrospective observational study including 21 patients confirmed with pathologically confirmed locoregional recurrence of parathyroid carcinoma. All patients had undergone preoperative US examination at a tertiary cent...
