AbstractAbstract PDF
Diabetic insipidus may first present before, during or immediately after pregnancy. Pregnancy serves as a physiologic provocation test that unmasks latent diabetes insipidus. It may explain the very rare first occurrence of diabetes insipidus in the pureperium. Central diabetes insipidus occurring after delivery associated with a catastrophic delivery and postpartum hypopituitarism is more frequent entity. We recently experienced central diabetes insipidus patient, aggrevated polyuria and polydipsia after total hysterectomy due to cervical carcinoma, who had interesting past history of severe polyuria and polydipsia developed during puerperium of 1st pregnancy, 14 years ago. She have had quiet normal pregnancy and there was no definite postpartum complication of pregnancy at that time. There were no change of polyuria and polydipsia during and after second pregnancy and 2 another pregnancy terminated artificially compare to puerperium of 1st delivery. She has intact anterior pituitary gland functinally and anatomically, but the posterior pituitary hyperintense signal with pre-enhance Tl-weighted imaging was absent on MRI.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Complications related to tuberculous menngitis (TBM) is frequently encountered in medical field during, just after treatment and long time later. Hypothalamo-pituitary dysfunctions such as diabetes incipidus, dwarfism, hypogonadism, growth failure, and hypopituitarism are one of rare complication secondary to TBM and of which obesity with hypogonadism is most commonly documented. Several pathologic mechanics like a granuloma in hypothalamus, or pituitary stalk, organization and progressive scarring of the purulent exudate in the basal cistern or progressive obliterative endarteritis that supplying the hypothalamo-hypophyseal system is well-defined in hypothalamopituitary dysfunction in neurotuberculosis. We recently experienced a diabetic patient with short stature and sexual infantilism who shows polyuria and polydipsia. Detailed endocrinological evaluation showed partial hypopituitarism and central diabetes incipidus secondary to tuberculous meningitis. Polyuria and polydipsia was improved with dDAVP and height increased 5 cm for 11 month with HGH, libido increased with oxadrolone but his extemal sexual characteristics was not changed until now. We present this case with a review of literature.

AbstractAbstract PDF
A 14-year-old girl presented with severe headache and grand mal seizure. A magnetic resonance imaging(MRI) of brain showed a pituitary mass(1.0X1.5X1.3cm) incidentally during seizure evaluation. On physical examination, nodular goiter was detected on her anterior neck. The hormone study showed markdly increased basal thyroid stimulating hormone(TSH) level compared to thyroid hormone level, hyperprolactinemia and decreased basal growth hormone level. TSH and prolactin showed exaggerated response to thyrotropin releasing hormone(TRH) and the growth hormone showed delayed and blunted response to insulin-induced hypoglycemia. With the results of thyroid autoantibody and thyroid scan, the diagnosis of Hashimoto's thyroiditis was possible. Thyroid hormone and anticonvulsant drug were started with close observation of clinical status under the impression of pituitary feedback adenoma caused by hypothyroidism. After 3 months replacement therapy of levothyroxine sodium, she achieved euthyroid state with disappearance of headache and nodular goiter. After continuous replacement therapy for 9 months more, the pituitary mass was successfully regressed on follow up MRI with normalization of basal prolactin level. Grand mal seizure was developed after withholding anticonvulsant drug even though continuous admmistration of thyroid hormone. Because of similarity among pituitary adenoma discovered incidentally, careful hormonal study and high index of suspicion should be maintained to achieve correct diagnosis in order to avoid unnecessary pituitary surgery in these patients.
