AbstractAbstract PDF
Pregnancy in acromegaly is very rare. Amenorrhea and infertility are common manifestations in acromegaly. The pregnancy may be influenced by acromegaly in many ways and pregnancy itself may influence the course of a pituitary tumor. We report of a case of pregnancy in a woman who was diagnosed with acromegaly during the course of pregnancy. Her pregnancy was uneventful and she delivered a healthy baby at 38 weeks by cesarean section. No treatment was undertaken during the pregnancy and transsphenoidal surgery was performed after the delivery.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Insuliin secreting tumor is 70% prevalent disease in female and predoadnant in forth and sixth deeade. The incidence of insulinoma is one case per 250,000 patient-years. Insulinoma in pregnancy was extremely rare, and the prevalence was not reported. The diagnosis of an insulinoma is depend on demonstration of hypoglycemia with high insulin and C-peptide levels. Immunoreactive insulin/plasma glucose ratio0.3 in particular support the diagnosis of an insulinoma. Fetal complication would be developed because of hypoglycemia. In approximately half of the cases reported, surgical exploration was done during pregrancy, the remainder were treated after delivery. Insulinoma poses serious diagnostic and therapeutic problems when she is pregnant. We experienced a case of insulinoma in pregnancy that represented Whipples triad and was treated by surgical intervention.
