  • Unilateral Ovarian Leiomyoma in a 14-year-old Adolescent: A rare case
           report

    • Authors: Aşkı Ellibeş Kaya; Sabri Berkem Ökten, Alper Başbuğ, Mehmet Gamsızkan, Ozan Doğan, Hasan Baki
      Abstract: Leiomyomasare benign mesenchymal tumors mostly seen in uterus. Uterin leiomyomas are oneof the most common reasons of pelvic masses seen in women whereas ovarianleiomyomas are so rare that among allbenign ovarian tumours it accounts only 0,5-1 %. It’s mostly seen between agesof 20-65 which premenopausal women consist %85 of them. In this case we wanted to present a 14 years old girl who was admitted to ourclinic with a 6 months history of lower quadrant abdominal pain. In theultrasonographic evaluation, there was a solid mass with uterin echogenityextending from posterior of uterus towards left adnexia with diameters of 6 cmx 5,5 cm. The origin of the tumor was unknown and could not be revealed withultrasonography nor MRI until diagnostic laparoscopy was performed. Ovariantumor was removed and the final pathology was compatible with leiomyoma.When we checked the literature there were only 5 cases of ovarian leiomyomareported under age of 20 and mostly they had bilateral character. The youngestage reported was 13. Our case is the second youngest of all reported cases andit shows a unilateral character. The other important aspect of our case is thatsometimes the imaging techniques can’t be adequate for detecting the origin oftumor.

           rare togetherness

    • Authors: Dr. Rabia Aydoğan Baykara; Nevsun Pıhtılı Taş
      Abstract: Some seronegative spondyloarthritis cases with familial Mediterranean fever disease, ankylosing spondylitis may show clinical course. There are a limited number of publications in the literature regarding the association of sacroiliitis with Familial Mediterranean fever. In this study, four patients with clinical and radiological findings of ankylosing spondylitis were presented from 60 patients followed by familial Mediterranean fever between February 2015 and October 2016. It was aimed to emphasize the suspicion of ankylosing spondylitis in patients with familial Mediterranean fever with this case series, in case of clinical signs of gluteal pain and low back pain which can be evaluated in favor of sacroiliitis.

  • Is the use of intraoperative nerve monitoring an effective method to
           reduce the rate of permanent recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis'

    • Authors: Doğan Yıldırım; Turgut Dönmez, Mikail Çakır, Okan Murat Aktürk, Adnan Hut, Ahmet Kocakuşak, Erdinç Çekiç, Leyla Zeynep Tigrel, Turgay Yıldız
      Abstract: Aim: Recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) paralysis is a common complication of thyroid surgery. In recent years, intraoperative nerve monitoring (IONM) has been used to reduce the risk of RLN paralysis. The purpose of this study was to assess the role of IONM in reducing RLN paralysis.Methods: A retrospective clinical study was conducted between January 2015 and January 2017 in a two-center-clinical trial at Lutfiye Nuri Burat State and Haseki Teaching and Research Hospitals. Patients who underwent thyroidectomy using IONM (Group A, n=100) or direct visual technique (Group B, n=232) were included. Patients' files were reviewed for age, body mass index, gender, American Society of Anesthesiologists score, calcium levels, complications, duration of operation and follow-up. Postoperative complications were regarded as the main outcomes.Results: A total of 332 patients (52 male, 280 female) with a mean age of 46.4±12.9 years were enrolled. 30.1% of the patients were in Group A (IONM). Bilateral and unilateral thyroidectomies were performed in 70.8% and 29.2% of the operations, respectively. Operative time was shorter in Group A (76.9±12.0 minutes vs 97.7±27.6 minutes, p <0.001). There was no significant difference between the two groups in terms of preoperative and postoperative calcium levels (p=0.407).There was no statistically significant difference in early RLN paralysis rates between the two groups (for Group A and Group B, 10 (10%) and 34 (14%), respectively) (p=0.251) While it was not present in Group A, permanent RLN paralysis was found in 10 patients in Group B (4.3%) (p = 0.035).Conclusion: The use of IONM may be useful in reducing the rate of permanent RLN paralysis.

  • Is there any benefit of harmonic scalpel for hemorrhoidectomy versus
           conventional diathermy'

    • Authors: Doğan Yıldırım; Turgut Dönmez, Okan Murat Aktürk, Ahmet Kocakuşak, Mikail Çakır, Mustafa Ertuğrul Yurtteri
      Abstract: Aim: Symptomatic hemorrhoidal disease is among the most common surgical diseases and it may necessitate surgical intervention. The most common and effective approaches used for surgical treatment are harmonic scalpel hemorrhoidectomy and conventional diathermy excision. The aim of the study was to compare the outcomes of hemorrhoidectomy using harmonic scalpel and the conventional diathermy excision techniques. Methods: The files of 113 consecutively operated patients (26 females 23%, 87 males 77%), who were operated on for symptomatic Grade III–IV hemorrhoids, were retrospectively reviewed for length of operation and hospitalization, early and delayed bleeding, urinary retention, postoperative abscess and anal stenosis. Exclusion criteria were additional operations, recurrent cases and inflammatory bowel disease. Results: Conventional diathermy hemorrhoidectomy in 60 (53%) and harmonic scalpel hemorrhoidectomy were used in 53 patients (47%). There were significant differences between the operation and hospitalization times in favor of harmonic scalpel group (p<0.05 for both). The other parameters did not show any significant differences (p>0.05 for all). Conclusion: Harmonic scalpel hemorrhoidectomy is advantageous and superior to conventional diathermy hemorrhoidectomy in regard to shorter operation time and earlier discharge from the hospital with no additonal complications.

  • Factors effecting the success of conservative management in de Quervain
           cases

    • Authors: Hasan Hüseyin Ceylan; Özcan Kaya, Barış Çaypınar, Muhammed Beşir Öztürk
      Abstract: Aim: De Quervain’s disease, which is known as tenosynovitis of the first radial dorsal compartment, usually is a self-limiting condition and it could be managed conservatively. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the factors affecting the success of the conservative treatment.Methods: Patients who admitted to outpatient service with radial styloid pain and diagnosed as de Quervain’s disease between March 2014 and December 2016 were enrolled to our study. A total number of 84 patients evaluated retrospectively, and 12 of them excluded due to inadequate patient information, previous interventions in other clinics, and lost to follow up. Patients’ files with regard to the patients’ data on age, sex, duration of symptomatic period, history of previous trauma, season of admission and need of surgery were evaluated.Results: Mean age of the patients was 42.24 (range 16-66) years. Of the cohort, 58 patients (80.6%) were female and the remaining patients (19.4%) were male. Mean length of pre-admission symptomatic period was 2.2 (range 1-12) months. There was no significant correlation between the resistance to treatment and the duration of the symptoms (r=0.4597). Sixty-one of 72 patients (84.7%) received one month of orthosis and oral/local medication and they were all healed. The remaining 11 patients with persistent pain received additional steroid injections. The mean age was 46.72 years at the injection group, and 10 of these 11 were female. Two female patients from these 11 resistant cases underwent surgical decompression. Conclusion: In conclusion, our study also supported the self-limiting clinical feature of de Quervain’s disease. Most of the patients have satisfactory results with conservative treatment or corticosteroid injections if needed. Most of the patients who needed corticosteroid injections in addition to splint use were female; therefore, the female patients should be informed in this aspect.

  • Intrauterine interventions with the aid of ultrasonography

    • Authors: Bulat Aytek Şık; Alim Özcan, Serkan Kumbasar, Murat Bozkurt, Sedat Bilecan
      Abstract: Aim: The aim of this study was to research the applicability of the surgical treatment of intrauterine pathologies with the aid of ultrasonography by passing a laparoscopic grasper or scissor through a metal sheath placed in the cervical canal, and compare this method with hysteroscopy, which is considered the gold standard in diagnosis and treatment.Methods: Our study was conducted with 39 cases where intrauterine pathologies were found with transvaginal ultrasonography (TVUSG). The patients were evaluated for endometrial polyp, submucosal leiomyoma/fibroid and uterine malformations using a transvaginal probe in the 6th to 12th days of the menstrual cycle. Patients with endometrial polyps and submucosal leiomyomas/fibroids were excised with a laparoscopic 5 mm grasper. A laparoscopic plain dissection scissor (5 mm) was used instead of a grasper for the uterine septum. In patients undergoing polypectomy and myomectomy, the uterine cavity was reevaluated by TVUSG about one month later (in the follicular phase after the first menstruation). Patients who underwent resection of the septum after the second menstrual bleeding, intrauterine cavity and tubal were evaluated by hysterosalpingography.Results: Considering the presence of intrauterine pathologies, TUSVG has sensitivity of 1 (0.87- 1.0), specificity of 0.56 (0.21-0.86), positive predictive value of 0.87 (0.71-0.96), negative predictive value of 1 (0.48-1.0), accuracy of 0.89 and positive likelihood ratio of 2.25 (1.03-4.5) for the detection endometrial polyps. When endometrial polyps were found as the intrauterine pathology during TUSVG, the chance of having endometrial polyps in hysteroscopic diagnosis was found to be 2.25 times more compared to those with no pathology. According to hysteroscopic diagnosis, TUSVG has sensitivity of 0.90 (0.74-0.98), specificity of 0.56 (0.21-0.86), positive predictive value of 0.87 (0.71-0.96), negative predictive value of 0.63 (0.25-0.92), accuracy of 0.82 and positive likelihood ratio of 2.03 (0.95-4.2) for intrauterine pathology. When the intrauterine pathology was found during TVUSG, the chance of having these pathologies in hysteroscopic diagnosis was found to be 2.03 times more compared to those with no pathology.Conclusion: We think thatthe surgical treatment of intrauterine pathologies with the aid ofultrasonography can be an alternative for hysteroscopy.

  • Malignant Transformation of Dental Material-induced Oral Lichenoid Contact
           Reaction: A Case Report Describing Outcomes After Amalgam Removal

    • Authors: Ahu Yorulmaz; Başak Yalçın, Ayşe Boyvat, Ömür Ataoğlu, Önder Bozdoğan
      Abstract: Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a chronic immune-mediated dermatosis of unknown origin. Considered as one of the most common diseases of the oral mucosa, OLP has been subject of intense interest since its first identification as a premalignant condition. Oral lichenoid contact reactions (OLCRs) are distinct analogs of OLP lesions, in that they are nearly indistinguishable from OLP both clinically and histologically. There is an on-going debate about whether the underlying condition causing OLP-induced malignant oral squamous cell carcinoma is OLP or OLCR. Even currently, a considerable number of patients with OLCR are diagnosed and managed as OLP without searching for specific causative agents. Dental restorative materials are one of the most common inducers of OLCR. Here, we describe a case with dental material-induced OLCR, who had previously undergone marginal mandibulectomy and neck dissection with a diagnosis of invasive well differentiated squamous cell carcinoma associated with OLP. We emphasize the need for investigation of possible etiological factors in every case of OLP or OLCR, as a basal patch test may completely change the course of the disease.

  • Pseudoxanthoma elasticum: Case series of three siblings

    • Authors: Mustafa Esen; İsa An, İbrahim İbiloğlu, Adar Aslan, Remzi Erten
      Abstract: Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) is a rare multisystemic genetic disease with dermatologic, cardiovascular and ocular involvement. PXE primarily affects the skin, and the ocular involvement is noted in almost 85% of patients. Cardiovascular complications caused by PXE often develop in adults. Since the prognosis of PXE is primarily dependent on extracutaneous organ involvement, early diagnosis of PXE is of prime importance for taking preventive measures. In this report, we present three siblings diagnosed with PXE.

  • Evaluation of platelet and mean platelet volume levels in patients with
           liver cirrhosis

    • Authors: Mustafa Genco Erdem; Eylem Özgün Çil, Tufan Tükek, Şerife Ayşen Helvacı
      Abstract: Aim: Liver cirrhosis isa process characterized by fibrosis and normal liver structure is replaced with diffuse nodular structure. Different laboratory values are used for diagnosis and prognosis of liver cirrhosis. To determine platelet and mean platelet volume levels of patients with liver cirrhosis and to find out if platelet or mean platelet volume levels have changed according to Child-Pugh classification or the etiology of cirrhosis.Methods: A total of 201 patients with cirrhosis who have been followed by of an education and research hospital internal medicine out-patient clinic between the years of 2006 and 2013, were included. Platelet count <150,000 / µL was accepted as thrombocytopenia. Individuals with diseases that can cause thrombocytopenia, patients using drugs that can cause thrombocytopenia and who has pseudothrombocytopenia were excluded from the study.Results: The number percantage ratios of patients according to underlying etiology for chronic liver disease were as follows Group 1 (alcoholic liver disease) with rate of % 16.9, Group 2 (hepatitis – B) with rate of % 25.4, Group 3 (hepatitis – C) with rate of % 23.4, Group 4 (cryptogenic) with rate of % 34.3.Average platelet value in the Group 1 was 130.2 ± 74 x 103/ µL, Group 2 was 104.8 ± 56.8 x 103/ µL, Group 3 was 100.6 ± 44.2 x 103/ µL, Group 4 was 104,1 ± 48.7 x 103/ µL;average platelet value in the control group (Group 5) was 247.7 ± 58.7 x 103 / µL. Average mean platelet volume values in the Group 1 was 9.19 ± 1.32 fL, Group2 was 9.21 ± 1.57 fL, Group 3 was 8.67 ± 1.25 fL, Group 4 was 8.85 ± 1.21 fL; average mean platelet volume value in the Group 5 was 8.05 ± 1 fL. Conclusion: In this study, platelet levels of the cirrhotic patients were lower than the control group’s platelet levels; MPV levels of the patients with cirrhosis were higher than the control group’s mean platelet volume levels. Platelet and MPV values were not different according to Child-Pugh stage or cirrhosis etiology. Therefore, more and larger scaled studies are needed to clarify conflicting conclusions about the impact of platelet number and MPV on chronic liver inflammation.

    • Authors: Gökhan Özer; Yasemin Ünal, Gülnihal Kutlu, Yasemin Biçer Gömceli, Levent Ertuğrul İnan
      Abstract: Aim: Restless legs syndrome is characterized by an abnormal sensation, a difficult-to-define type of dysesthesia in the extremities, especially in the legs. In our study, we aimed to determine the frequency of restless legs syndrome in patients with chronic epilepsy.Methods: A total of 86 epilepsy patients were included in the study. Epilepsy grading of the study patients was performed based on the International League Against Epilepsy 1981 classification. Demographic data of the patients were collected and Turkish version of the questionnaire consisting of 4 questions of diagnostic criteria issued in 2014 by International Restless Legs Syndrome Study Group (IRLSSG), in addition to the other forms, were completed through face-to-face interviews.Results: Restless leg syndrome prevalence among the patients included in the study was found to be 5.81% (5 patients out of 86). Mean score of IRLSSG evaluation scale was 17±6.5.Conclusion: The results of our study showed that the prevalence of restless legs syndrome is lower in patients with epilepsy, a common neurologic disorder, compared to the general population.

  • An interesting case of acute bilateral upper motor weakness: A case report

    • Authors: Shamsudden Moideen; N.A. Uvais
      Abstract: Malaria, the world’s third-ranked infectious killer, is caused by the bite of a female anopheline mosquito which is infected a protozoan from the genus ‘Plasmodium’. More than 35% of all malaria cases are caused by the falciparum malaria species. Several neurological manifestations of malaria have been reported, especially with severe falciparum infection, which in- clude altered level of consciousness, repeated seizures and coma. Here, we report a unique case of acute bilateral upper motor neuron weakness due to P. Falciparum malaria in a previously healthy young adult, who is a migrant worker in Kerala/India.
