AbstractAbstract PDF
Postpartum ischemic necrosis of the pituitary gland, known as Sheehan's syndrome, is well- established clinical entity. In anterior pituitary insufficiency, there is very often a normochromic or hypochromic anemia but pancytopenia secondary to the hypopituitarism is less common. We report a case of pancytopenia due to complete aplasia of the bone marrow associated with Sheehan's syndrome, in which hormone replacement therapy alone produced full hematological recovery.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Hypopituitarism is not a common cause of delayed puberty, however it should always be considered, especially if there are such signs as severe dwarfism, dollish face, truncal obesity, small hands and feet, and microgenitalia. Either congenital or acquired, hypopituitarism can be resulted from hypothalamic and hypophyseal lesions. The clinical feature can be diverse depending on age of the patients, rate of progression, degree of hormone deficiency and characteristics of the lesion. The recent high interest in delayed puberty and the improved detection of hypothalamic hypophyseal lesions using combined pituitary fuction stimulation test, brain CT and MRJ, has made the differential diagnosis of hypopituitarism possible as the cause of delayed puberty. MRI has shown hypophyeal hypoplasia accompanied by anterior pituitary hypoplasia and ectopic neurohypophysis in some of the patients with hypopituitasm, and although the anatomical abnormality around the hypophysis in these patients is considered the reason for hypopituitarism, the pathogensis of which has not yet to be known. We, here, report a case of delayed puberty by hypopituitarism due to hypoplasia of anterior pituitary gland, pituitary stalk agenesis and ectopic neurohypophysis with brief review of the litereature.

AbstractAbstract PDF
We experienced a case of Cushings syndrome due to adrenal adenoma associated with pregnancy 23th week in a 26 year old female patient. On physical findings, hypertension, moon face, hirsutism, abdominal striae and buffalo hump were noticed. Laboratory findings showed increased serum cortisol, increased 24 hours-urinary cortisol, and decreased plasma ACTH. Abdominal MRI demonstrated 4 cm sized in long diameter, well marginated, and ovoid-shape right adrenal mass. Unilateral total adrenalectomy was performed at the 23th week of pregnancy and the mass it was confirmed to benign adrenal adenoma. Steroid replacement therapy was continued with 7.5 mg prednisolone during remaining pregnancy. At the 38th week of pregnancy, labor was developed and she delivered healthy female weighing 2.5 kg through normal vaginal delivery without complication. Pregnancy rarely occurs in patients with Cushings syndrome. We think she was the first case in Korea who had normal 38th week transvaginal delivery after adrenalectomy in adrenal Cushings syndrome during pregnancy.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Primary aldosteronism is characterized by hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis, low plasma renin activity, elevated plasma aldosterone level and can be suspected in the patients with hypertension and unexplained hypokalemia. Small adrenal cortical adenomas are responsible for this syndrome in most cases. The incidence of thyrotoxic periodic paralysis ranges from 1.9 to 6.2 % in Japan. Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis usually subsides following treatment of hyperthyroidism and has good prognosis. A 56 year-old man presented with hyperthyroidism, hypertension and recurrent hypokalemia. During the treatment of hyperthyroidism, he repeatedly experienced weakness of both lower extremities. Hormonal evaluation was performed and he was found to have a 2*2*1.5 cm sized right adrenal tumor by abdominal computerized topography(CT). After right adrenalectomy, hypokalemic periodic paralysis was improved. Both thyroid and adrenal function should be comprehensively investigated in periodic paralysis. In conclusion, physicians must be aware of the possibility of primary aldosteronism in hyperthyroid patients with hypokalemic periodic paralysis. We report a case of aldosteronoma complicated with hyperthyroidism and literatures are reviewed.

AbstractAbstract PDF
A 41-year-old female complaining of easy fatigue, headache, thickened extremities and deepened facial folds was admitted to the hospital. As early as 6 years ago, she had been told by family members that her voice was changed and both hands was thickened. Cranial plain radiography indicated ballooning of sella turcica. Sella MRI disclosed 2.2cm sized pituitary tumor with suprasellar extension. The pituitary tumor with hypothalamic extension was removed via a transsphenoidal approach. The postoperative course was uneventful until hyponatremia with sudden headache and respiratory arrest was developed. The case was due to hyponatremic encephalopathy on the basis of the clinical course and symptoms, and 3% hypertonic saline was infused for 12 hours until the hyponatremia was corrected. We have experienced a mortality case of hyponatremic encephalopathy in which surgieal removal of a pituitary tumor from a female acromegalic patient in menstruant period was followed by the sudden occurrence of hyponatremia, which in turn was later associated with marked brain edema.

AbstractAbstract PDF
BACKGROUND
Adrenalectomy does impair the expression of hypothalamic NPY gene in the rat and replacement of glucocorticoid by intracerebroventricular(ICV) route resulted in a normalization of refeeding hyperphagia and weight gain in adrenalectomized(ADX), food-deprived rats. The purpose of this study was to assess the direct effect of CNS glucocorticoid on hypothalamic NPY gene expression which occurs following food deprivation in ADX rats. METHODS: Adult male Wistar rats were fitted with ICV cannulae and restricted the food intake for 14 days. Adrenalectomy and sham operation were done on the 10th day and single ICV corticosterone acetate(100ug/2uL) was given in one ADX group(ADX+CORT, n=9) and vehicle (2uL) was given in another ADX group(ADX+VEH, n=9) and sham rats(SHAM+VEH, n=7). After experiment, we measured NPY mRNA on arcuate nucleus by in situ hybridization. RESULTS: The rate of weight loss of ADX rats closely parallded that of sham-operated rats. Plasma glucose and insulin levels were not significantly different in three groups. Hybridization density on the ARC in ADX+VEH rats(0.42+/-0.02uCi/g: p<0.05) was significantly reduced compared to that in sham controls(0.68+/-0. 11uCi/g). ICV corticosterone injection increased the hybridization density in ADX+CORT rats(0.53+/-0.04uCi/g) compared to vehicle alone, although this did not reach that of controls. NPY gene expression was 40% in ADX+VEH rats and 62% in ADX+CORT rats compared to control rats. CONCLUSIONS: These results are consistent with the hypothesis that CNS glucocorticoid deficiency appears to be responsible for the impairment of refeeding hyperphagia in ADX rats and the effect of CNS glucocorticoid deficiency is a manifestation of impaired activation of hypothalamic NPY gene expression in the ARC.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Heorrhage and infarct-like necrosis of anterior lobe of the pituitary gland is one of the characteristic pathologic findings of the autopsied cases of Korean Hemorrhagic Fever (KHF) patients, but there has been rare reports of hypopituitarism in patients with KHF. Recently we have experienced a patient with hyponatremia who had recovered from KHF. He was admitted to our hospital due to nausea, vomiting, and epigastric discornfort. To determine the function of the anterior pituitary gland, hormonal levels of target galnds and pituitary gland were measured, and combined pituitary stimulation test was performed. ACTH, GH, and prolactin deficiency were confirmed by combined pituitary stimulation test in this patient. There was no evidence of hypothalamic or other pituitary diseases by brain MRI. Our experience shows that KHF can be a cause of hypopituitarism and these findings should alert physicians the possibility of hypopituitarisrn in patients who had recovered from KHF.
