AbstractAbstract PDF
Adipsic hypernatremia cause chronic hyperosmolality and hypernatremia through a combination of impaired thirst and osmotically stimulated antidiuretic hormone secretion. This syndrome can be grouped together as disorders of osmoreceptor dysfunction due to the various degrees of osmoreceptor destruction related with different types of intracranial lesions around the anterior hypothalamus, consistent with the location of primary osmoreceptor cells. Adipsic hypernatremia, associated with developmental disorder of corpus callosum, is very rare. Most cases are diagnosed at infancy and early childhood; the replacement of desmopressin is necessary. Herein, we report adipsic hypernatremia associated with anomalous corpus callosum in adult with mental retardation; they were treated with only free water without desmopressin.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Diabetic neuropathy is one of the most common complications of diabetic mellitus and has myriad clinical presentations. Amitriptyline is an effective drug for painful diabetic neuropathy, but has a wide variety of cardiovascular effects. We report a case of amitriptyline-induced ventricular tachycardia in a patient with painful diabetic neuropathy. A 48-year-old man with no history of heart disease was treated with amitriptyline for the past 2 months. The dosage of this drug was gradually increased and the maximal dose was 170 mg per day. Prior to administration of this drug, his chest X-ray and electrocardiogram were normal. On admission he complained of chest discomfort and palpitation for 3 days, but his vital sign was stable. The electrocardiogram showed a wide QRS complex with a rate of 170 beats per minute. The ventricular tachycardia was successfully treated with electrical cardioversion.
