BACKGROUND
Reports on pituitary apoplexy in Korea are limited. There are two treatment options for pituitary apoplexy - surgical decompression and conservative management. In this study, we examined clinical presentation and outcomes following different therapies in Korean patients with pituitary apoplexy. METHODS: Clinical data and treatment outcomes from 52 patients with pituitary apoplexy who visited Seoul National University Hospital between January 1992 and June 2008 were reviewed retrospectively. Patients were divided into 2 groups according to management options (a surgery group vs. a conservative management group) and their outcomes were compared. For patients who underwent surgery due to neurological symptoms, outcomes were compared between early and late surgery groups. RESULTS: Headache (73.1%) was the most common presenting symptom, and more than half of the patients were reported to have visual symptoms. The most common type of pathology was a nonfunctioning pituitary adenoma (67.3%). Nine patients received conservative management and 43 underwent surgical decompression. Their recovery from neurological and endocrinological abnormalities were similar. Among patients who showed neurological symptoms, 9 underwent surgery within 1 week of symptom onset and 24 underwent surgery after 1 week. There was no significant difference between outcomes of early and late surgery groups except recovery from impaired visual deficit was greater in the late surgery group. CONCLUSION: Patients with pituitary apoplexy in Korea show similar clinical features as similar patients in other countries. In our study, there was no significant difference between clinical outcomes of the surgery group and the conservative treatment group.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Radioactive iodine (RAI) therapy is used for the removal of remnant thyroid tissue or metastatic thyroid cancer cells in differentiated thyroid cancer. The main mechanism of the therapy is destruction of cells by radioactive iodine that penetrates the cells though the action of the sodium-iodide symporter (NIS). We experienced a case of a 26-year-old woman with mediastinal uptake as detected on a radioiodine scan, who was previously diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer. For diagnostic tests including chest computed tomography (CT) and a radioiodine scan, the stimulated thyroglobulin level did not show a definite cause of the mediastinal uptake. During regular follow-up, the thymus became triangular with clear margins. The patient had neither specific symptoms nor physical findings related to the presence of a thymic mass. A subsequent CT scan showed an irregular margin of the thymus, suggestive of thymic metastasis. The patient underwent a mediastinectomy. The removed specimen was composed of normal thymic tissue. Moreover, we demonstrated the presence of human NIS by immunohistochemical analysis. After thymectomy, the mediastinal uptake was markedly decreased as compared to the previous scan. This case suggests that a clinician should be suspicious for the functional uptake of thymus when metastasis is unlikely in a clinical situation.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Patients with adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) present with evidence of excessive adrenal steroid hormone in approximately 60% of cases, in which rapidly progressing Cushing's syndrome with or without virilization is the most frequent presentation. Some patients experience an increase or a decline in cortisol production through the progression of their ACC. We report on an unusual case of a cortisol-producing ACC, and the patient presented with a decline in cortisol production, followed by an increase in cortisol production, through the progression of the tumor. A 65-year-old woman who manifested with facial edema and weight gain was diagnosed with Cushing's syndrome, caused by cortisol producing ACC. The patient was treated with adrenalectomy. However, 8 months later, a metastatic hepatic tumor of recurred ACC was detected. At that time, the hormonal evaluation revealed that the liver mass did not produce any hormones. The patient was treated with metastatectomy. Four months later, a relapsed tumor was detected. Increased cortisol production was observed at that time. We speculate there was a change in the clonal dominance within the ACC and this change might cause such a difference. This is the first case report of ACC that showed variable hormone production during progression.
