Adrenal Gland Diseases: Pathological processes of the ADRENAL GLANDS.Salivary Gland DiseasesAdrenal Glands: A pair of glands located at the cranial pole of each of the two KIDNEYS. Each adrenal gland is composed of two distinct endocrine tissues with separate embryonic origins, the ADRENAL CORTEX producing STEROIDS and the ADRENAL MEDULLA producing NEUROTRANSMITTERS.Sebaceous Gland Diseases: Diseases of the sebaceous glands such as sebaceous hyperplasia and sebaceous cell carcinoma (SEBACEOUS GLAND NEOPLASMS).Sweat Gland Diseases: Diseases of the SWEAT GLANDS.Dacryocystitis: Inflammation of the lacrimal sac. (Dorland, 27th ed)Adrenal Gland Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the ADRENAL GLANDS.Lacrimal Apparatus: The tear-forming and tear-conducting system which includes the lacrimal glands, eyelid margins, conjunctival sac, and the tear drainage system.Sialadenitis: INFLAMMATION of salivary tissue (SALIVARY GLANDS), usually due to INFECTION or injuries.Eyelid DiseasesSubmandibular Gland DiseasesMeibomian Glands: The sebaceous glands situated on the inner surface of the eyelids between the tarsal plates and CONJUNCTIVA.Adrenal Cortex: The outer layer of the adrenal gland. It is derived from MESODERM and comprised of three zones (outer ZONA GLOMERULOSA, middle ZONA FASCICULATA, and inner ZONA RETICULARIS) with each producing various steroids preferentially, such as ALDOSTERONE; HYDROCORTISONE; DEHYDROEPIANDROSTERONE; and ANDROSTENEDIONE. Adrenal cortex function is regulated by pituitary ADRENOCORTICOTROPIN.Adrenal Medulla: The inner portion of the adrenal gland. Derived from ECTODERM, adrenal medulla consists mainly of CHROMAFFIN CELLS that produces and stores a number of NEUROTRANSMITTERS, mainly adrenaline (EPINEPHRINE) and NOREPINEPHRINE. The activity of the adrenal medulla is regulated by the SYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM.Sjogren's Syndrome: Chronic inflammatory and autoimmune disease in which the salivary and lacrimal glands undergo progressive destruction by lymphocytes and plasma cells resulting in decreased production of saliva and tears. The primary form, often called sicca syndrome, involves both KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS SICCA and XEROSTOMIA. The secondary form includes, in addition, the presence of a connective tissue disease, usually rheumatoid arthritis.Adrenal Insufficiency: Conditions in which the production of adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS falls below the requirement of the body. Adrenal insufficiency can be caused by defects in the ADRENAL GLANDS, the PITUITARY GLAND, or the HYPOTHALAMUS.Salivary Glands: Glands that secrete SALIVA in the MOUTH. There are three pairs of salivary glands (PAROTID GLAND; SUBLINGUAL GLAND; SUBMANDIBULAR GLAND).Adrenal Cortex Neoplasms: Tumors or cancers of the ADRENAL CORTEX.Adrenocorticotropic Hormone: An anterior pituitary hormone that stimulates the ADRENAL CORTEX and its production of CORTICOSTEROIDS. ACTH is a 39-amino acid polypeptide of which the N-terminal 24-amino acid segment is identical in all species and contains the adrenocorticotrophic activity. Upon further tissue-specific processing, ACTH can yield ALPHA-MSH and corticotrophin-like intermediate lobe peptide (CLIP).Adrenalectomy: Excision of one or both adrenal glands. (From Dorland, 28th ed)Autoimmune Diseases: Disorders that are characterized by the production of antibodies that react with host tissues or immune effector cells that are autoreactive to endogenous peptides.Mammary Glands, Animal: MAMMARY GLANDS in the non-human MAMMALS.Exocrine Glands: Glands of external secretion that release its secretions to the body's cavities, organs, or surface, through a duct.Submandibular Gland: One of two salivary glands in the neck, located in the space bound by the two bellies of the digastric muscle and the angle of the mandible. It discharges through the submandibular duct. The secretory units are predominantly serous although a few mucous alveoli, some with serous demilunes, occur. (Stedman, 25th ed)Adrenal Hyperplasia, Congenital: A group of inherited disorders of the ADRENAL GLANDS, caused by enzyme defects in the synthesis of cortisol (HYDROCORTISONE) and/or ALDOSTERONE leading to accumulation of precursors for ANDROGENS. Depending on the hormone imbalance, congenital adrenal hyperplasia can be classified as salt-wasting, hypertensive, virilizing, or feminizing. Defects in STEROID 21-HYDROXYLASE; STEROID 11-BETA-HYDROXYLASE; STEROID 17-ALPHA-HYDROXYLASE; 3-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (3-HYDROXYSTEROID DEHYDROGENASES); TESTOSTERONE 5-ALPHA-REDUCTASE; or steroidogenic acute regulatory protein; among others, underlie these disorders.Adrenocortical Adenoma: A benign neoplasm of the ADRENAL CORTEX. It is characterized by a well-defined nodular lesion, usually less than 2.5 cm. Most adrenocortical adenomas are nonfunctional. The functional ones are yellow and contain LIPIDS. Depending on the cell type or cortical zone involved, they may produce ALDOSTERONE; HYDROCORTISONE; DEHYDROEPIANDROSTERONE; and/or ANDROSTENEDIONE.Catecholamines: A general class of ortho-dihydroxyphenylalkylamines derived from tyrosine.Splanchnic Nerves: The major nerves supplying sympathetic innervation to the abdomen. The greater, lesser, and lowest (or smallest) splanchnic nerves are formed by preganglionic fibers from the spinal cord which pass through the paravertebral ganglia and then to the celiac ganglia and plexuses. The lumbar splanchnic nerves carry fibers which pass through the lumbar paravertebral ganglia to the mesenteric and hypogastric ganglia.Parotid Gland: The largest of the three pairs of SALIVARY GLANDS. They lie on the sides of the FACE immediately below and in front of the EAR.Zona Fasciculata: The wide middle zone of the adrenal cortex. This zone produces a series of enzymes that convert PREGNENOLONE to cortisol (HYDROCORTISONE) via 17-ALPHA-HYDROXYPROGESTERONE.Hydrocortisone: The main glucocorticoid secreted by the ADRENAL CORTEX. Its synthetic counterpart is used, either as an injection or topically, in the treatment of inflammation, allergy, collagen diseases, asthma, adrenocortical deficiency, shock, and some neoplastic conditions.Corticosterone: An adrenocortical steroid that has modest but significant activities as a mineralocorticoid and a glucocorticoid. (From Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed, p1437)Pheochromocytoma: A usually benign, well-encapsulated, lobular, vascular tumor of chromaffin tissue of the ADRENAL MEDULLA or sympathetic paraganglia. The cardinal symptom, reflecting the increased secretion of EPINEPHRINE and NOREPINEPHRINE, is HYPERTENSION, which may be persistent or intermittent. During severe attacks, there may be HEADACHE; SWEATING, palpitation, apprehension, TREMOR; PALLOR or FLUSHING of the face, NAUSEA and VOMITING, pain in the CHEST and ABDOMEN, and paresthesias of the extremities. The incidence of malignancy is as low as 5% but the pathologic distinction between benign and malignant pheochromocytomas is not clear. (Dorland, 27th ed; DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1298)Adrenal Cortex Diseases: Pathological processes of the ADRENAL CORTEX.Cushing Syndrome: A condition caused by prolonged exposure to excess levels of cortisol (HYDROCORTISONE) or other GLUCOCORTICOIDS from endogenous or exogenous sources. It is characterized by upper body OBESITY; OSTEOPOROSIS; HYPERTENSION; DIABETES MELLITUS; HIRSUTISM; AMENORRHEA; and excess body fluid. Endogenous Cushing syndrome or spontaneous hypercortisolism is divided into two groups, those due to an excess of ADRENOCORTICOTROPIN and those that are ACTH-independent.Aldosterone: A hormone secreted by the ADRENAL CORTEX that regulates electrolyte and water balance by increasing the renal retention of sodium and the excretion of potassium.Zona Reticularis: The inner zone of the adrenal cortex. This zone produces the enzymes that convert PREGNENOLONE, a 21-carbon steroid, to 19-carbon steroids (DEHYDROEPIANDROSTERONE; and ANDROSTENEDIONE) via 17-ALPHA-HYDROXYPREGNENOLONE.Sweat Glands: Sweat-producing structures that are embedded in the DERMIS. Each gland consists of a single tube, a coiled body, and a superficial duct.Adrenocortical Hyperfunction: Excess production of ADRENAL CORTEX HORMONES such as ALDOSTERONE; HYDROCORTISONE; DEHYDROEPIANDROSTERONE; and/or ANDROSTENEDIONE. Hyperadrenal syndromes include CUSHING SYNDROME; HYPERALDOSTERONISM; and VIRILISM.Sebaceous Glands: Small, sacculated organs found within the DERMIS. Each gland has a single duct that emerges from a cluster of oval alveoli. Each alveolus consists of a transparent BASEMENT MEMBRANE enclosing epithelial cells. The ducts from most sebaceous glands open into a HAIR FOLLICLE, but some open on the general surface of the SKIN. Sebaceous glands secrete SEBUM.Chromaffin Cells: Cells that store epinephrine secretory vesicles. During times of stress, the nervous system signals the vesicles to secrete their hormonal content. Their name derives from their ability to stain a brownish color with chromic salts. Characteristically, they are located in the adrenal medulla and paraganglia (PARAGANGLIA, CHROMAFFIN) of the sympathetic nervous system.Sublingual Gland: A salivary gland on each side of the mouth below the TONGUE.Hyperaldosteronism: A condition caused by the overproduction of ALDOSTERONE. It is characterized by sodium retention and potassium excretion with resultant HYPERTENSION and HYPOKALEMIA.Harderian Gland: A sebaceous gland that, in some animals, acts as an accessory to the lacrimal gland. The harderian gland excretes fluid that facilitates movement of the third eyelid.Adosterol: A sterol usually substituted with radioactive iodine. It is an adrenal cortex scanning agent with demonstrated high adrenal concentration and superior adrenal imaging.Chromaffin System: The cells of the body which stain with chromium salts. They occur along the sympathetic nerves, in the adrenal gland, and in various other organs.Steroid 21-Hydroxylase: An adrenal microsomal cytochrome P450 enzyme that catalyzes the 21-hydroxylation of steroids in the presence of molecular oxygen and NADPH-FERRIHEMOPROTEIN REDUCTASE. This enzyme, encoded by CYP21 gene, converts progesterones to precursors of adrenal steroid hormones (CORTICOSTERONE; HYDROCORTISONE). Defects in CYP21 cause congenital adrenal hyperplasia (ADRENAL HYPERPLASIA, CONGENITAL).Cosyntropin: A synthetic peptide that is identical to the 24-amino acid segment at the N-terminal of ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE. ACTH (1-24), a segment similar in all species, contains the biological activity that stimulates production of CORTICOSTEROIDS in the ADRENAL CORTEX.Zona Glomerulosa: The narrow subcapsular outer zone of the adrenal cortex. This zone produces a series of enzymes that convert PREGNENOLONE to ALDOSTERONE. The final steps involve three successive oxidations by CYTOCHROME P-450 CYP11B2.Adrenal Cortex Function Tests: Examinations that evaluate and monitor hormone production in the adrenal cortex.Adrenal Cortex HormonesSalivary Gland Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the SALIVARY GLANDS.Addison Disease: An adrenal disease characterized by the progressive destruction of the ADRENAL CORTEX, resulting in insufficient production of ALDOSTERONE and HYDROCORTISONE. Clinical symptoms include ANOREXIA; NAUSEA; WEIGHT LOSS; MUSCLE WEAKNESS; and HYPERPIGMENTATION of the SKIN due to increase in circulating levels of ACTH precursor hormone which stimulates MELANOCYTES.Adrenocortical Carcinoma: A malignant neoplasm of the ADRENAL CORTEX. Adrenocortical carcinomas are unencapsulated anaplastic (ANAPLASIA) masses sometimes exceeding 20 cm or 200 g. They are more likely to be functional than nonfunctional, and produce ADRENAL CORTEX HORMONES that may result in hypercortisolism (CUSHING SYNDROME); HYPERALDOSTERONISM; and/or VIRILISM.Dopamine beta-HydroxylaseMyelolipoma: A rare benign tumor of the adrenal gland, several centimeters in diameter, composed in varying proportions of adipose tissue, lymphocytes, and primitive myeloid cells, probably a developmental abnormality. (Dorland, 27th ed)Tuberculosis, Endocrine: Infection of the ENDOCRINE GLANDS with species of MYCOBACTERIUM, most often MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS.Steroid 11-beta-Hydroxylase: A mitochondrial cytochrome P450 enzyme that catalyzes the 11-beta-hydroxylation of steroids in the presence of molecular oxygen and NADPH-FERRIHEMOPROTEIN REDUCTASE. This enzyme, encoded by CYP11B1 gene, is important in the synthesis of CORTICOSTERONE and HYDROCORTISONE. Defects in CYP11B1 cause congenital adrenal hyperplasia (ADRENAL HYPERPLASIA, CONGENITAL).Dehydroepiandrosterone: A major C19 steroid produced by the ADRENAL CORTEX. It is also produced in small quantities in the TESTIS and the OVARY. Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) can be converted to TESTOSTERONE; ANDROSTENEDIONE; ESTRADIOL; and ESTRONE. Most of DHEA is sulfated (DEHYDROEPIANDROSTERONE SULFATE) before secretion.Epinephrine: The active sympathomimetic hormone from the ADRENAL MEDULLA. It stimulates both the alpha- and beta- adrenergic systems, causes systemic VASOCONSTRICTION and gastrointestinal relaxation, stimulates the HEART, and dilates BRONCHI and cerebral vessels. It is used in ASTHMA and CARDIAC FAILURE and to delay absorption of local ANESTHETICS.Cattle: Domesticated bovine animals of the genus Bos, usually kept on a farm or ranch and used for the production of meat or dairy products or for heavy labor.RNA, Messenger: RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.Chromaffin Granules: Organelles in CHROMAFFIN CELLS located in the adrenal glands and various other organs. These granules are the site of the synthesis, storage, metabolism, and secretion of EPINEPHRINE and NOREPINEPHRINE.
(1/202) In vivo evidence that endogenous dopamine modulates sympathetic activity in man.

Dopamine receptors type 2 (D2)-like receptor blockers cause an increase in the norepinephrine response to intense physical exercise. However, during intense physical exercise, D2-like antagonists also cause an increase in the epinephrine response, which itself might cause an increase in plasma norepinephrine through the activation of beta2 presynaptic receptors. Therefore, we evaluated the effect of domperidone, a D2-like antagonist, on the norepinephrine response to physical exercise in 6 Addison patients (3 were adrenalectomized and 3 had adrenal tuberculosis). In these patients, the norepinephrine increase observed during exercise was significantly higher after the administration of domperidone than a placebo (F=4,328; P<0.001). Because peripheral plasma norepinephrine does not reflect the sympathetic tone to the heart accurately, we evaluated the effect of domperidone administration (20 mg orally) on the sympathovagal balance, which was measured by the ratio between the high- and low-frequency components of heart rate variability, in 9 normal volunteers in the supine and sitting positions. When compared with placebo, domperidone caused a significant increase in the low/high frequency ratio (P<0.05) in the sitting position without modifying basal and stimulated norepinephrine plasma levels or blood pressure. These data support a role for endogenous dopamine in modulating norepinephrine release by human sympathetic nerves in vivo.  (+info)

(2/202) Traumatic adrenal injury in children.

BACKGROUND: Multiple organ injury in children is an increasingly frequent phenomenon in the modern emergency room. Adrenal hemorrhage associated with this type of trauma has received little attention in the past. OBJECTIVES: Using computed tomography, we sought to determine the rate and nature of adrenal gland injury in children following blunt abdominal trauma due to motor vehicular accident. METHODS: A total of 121 children with blunt abdominal trauma were examined and total body CT was performed in cases of multi-organ trauma or severe neurological injury. RESULTS: Of all the children who presented with blunt abdominal trauma over a 51 month period, 6 (4.95%) had adrenal hemorrhage. In all cases only the right adrenal gland was affected. Coincidental injury to the chest and other abdominal organs was noted in 66.7% and 50% of patients, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: Traumatic adrenal injury in the pediatric population may be more common than previously suspected. Widespread application of the more sophisticated imaging modalities available today will improve the detection of damage to the smaller organs in major collision injuries and will help in directing attention to the mechanism of trauma.  (+info)

(3/202) A case of hypothalamic adrenal insufficiency manifested normal ACTH response to insulin-induced hypoglycemia.

A low plasma ACTH response to insulin-induced hypoglycemia and an exaggerated and delayed plasma ACTH response to CRH stimulation have been considered as an indicator of hypothalamic hypopituitarism. We report a case of hypothalamic adrenal insufficiency which manifested normal ACTH response to insulin-induced hypoglycemia. This case provides important information to categorize hypothalamic adrenal insufficiency caused by abnormal regulation of CRH release.  (+info)

(4/202) Apparently normal ovarian differentiation in a prepubertal girl with transcriptionally inactive steroidogenic factor 1 (NR5A1/SF-1) and adrenocortical insufficiency.

Steroidogenic factor 1 (NR5A1/SF-1) plays an essential role in the development of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal and hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axes, controlling expression of their many important genes. The recent description of a 46,XY patient bearing a mutation in the NR5A1 gene, causing male pseudohermaphroditism and adrenal failure, demonstrated the crucial role of SF-1 in male gonadal differentiation. The role of SF-1 in human ovarian development was, until now, unknown. We describe a phenotypically and genotypically normal girl, with signs and symptoms of adrenal insufficiency and no apparent defect in ovarian maturation, bearing a heterozygote G-->T transversion in exon 4 of the NR5A1 gene that leads to the missense R255L in the SF-1 protein. The exchange does not interfere with protein translation and stability. Consistent with the clinical picture, R255L is transcriptionally inactive and has no dominant-negative activity. The inability of the mutant (MUT) NR5A1/SF-1 to bind canonical DNA sequences might offer a possible explanation for the failure of the mutant protein to transactivate target genes. This is the first report of a mutation in the NR5A1 gene in a genotypically female patient, and it suggests that NR5A1/SF-1 is not necessary for female gonadal development, confirming the crucial role of NR5A1/SF-1 in adrenal gland formation in both sexes.  (+info)

(5/202) Endoscopic retroperitoneal adrenalectomy: lessons learned from 111 consecutive cases.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of endoscopic retroperitoneal adrenalectomy (ERA). SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Minimally invasive adrenalectomy has become the procedure of choice for benign adrenal pathology. Although the adrenal glands are located in the retroperitoneum, most surgeons prefer the transperitoneal laparoscopic approach to adrenal tumors. METHODS: Clinical characteristics and outcomes of 111 ERAs from January 1994 to December 1999 were evaluated. RESULTS: Ninety-five patients underwent 111 ERAs (79 unilateral, 16 bilateral). Indications were Cushing syndrome (n = 22), Cushing disease (n = 8), ectopic adrenocorticotropic hormone syndrome (n = 6), Conn's adenoma (n = 25), pheochromocytoma (n = 19), incidentaloma (n = 11), and other (n = 4). Tumor size varied from 0.1 to 8 cm. Median age was 50 years. Unilateral ERA required 114 minutes, with median blood loss of 65 mL. Bilateral ERA lasted 214 minutes, with median blood loss of 121 mL. The conversion rate to open surgery was 4.5%. The complication rate was 11%. Median postoperative hospital stay was 2 days for unilateral ERA and 5 days for bilateral ERA. The death rate was 0.9%. At a median follow-up of 14 months, the recurrence rate of disease was 0.9%. CONCLUSION: For benign adrenal tumors less than 6 cm, ERA is recommended.  (+info)

(6/202) Evaluation of incidental renal and adrenal masses.

Incidental renal or adrenal masses are sometimes found during imaging for problems unrelated to the kidneys and adrenal glands. Knowledgeable family physicians can reliably diagnose these masses, thereby avoiding unnecessary worry and procedures for their patients. A practical and cost-efficient means of evaluating renal lesions combines ultrasonography and computed tomographic scanning, with close communication between the family physician and the radiologist. Asymptomatic patients with simple renal cysts require no further evaluation. Patients with minimally complicated renal cysts can be followed radiographically. Magnetic resonance imaging is indicated in patients with indeterminate renal masses, and referral is required in patients with symptoms or solid masses. The need for referral of patients with adrenal masses is determined by careful assessment of clinical signs and symptoms, as well as the results of screening laboratory studies and appropriate radiologic studies. Referral is indicated for patients with incidental adrenal masses more than 6 cm in greatest diameter. Appropriate laboratory screening tests include the following: a 24-hour urinary free cortisol measurement for patients with evidence of Cushing's syndrome; a 24-hour urinary metanephrine, vanillylmandelic acid or catecholamine measurement for patients with evidence of pheochromocytoma; and a serum potassium level for patients with evidence of hyperaldosteronism.  (+info)

(7/202) Adrenal gland: structure, function, and mechanisms of toxicity.

The adrenal gland is one of the most common endocrine organs affected by chemically induced lesions. In the adrenal cortex, lesions are more frequent in the zona fasciculata and reticularis than in the zona glomerulosa. The adrenal cortex produces steroid hormones with a 17-carbon nucleus following a series of hydroxylation reactions that occur in the mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum. Toxic agents for the adrenal cortex include short-chain aliphatic compounds, lipidosis inducers, amphiphilic compounds, natural and synthetic steroids, and chemicals that affect hydroxylation. Morphologic evaluation of cortical lesions provides insight into the sites of inhibition of steroidogenesis. The adrenal cortex response to injury is varied. Degeneration (vacuolar and granular), necrosis, and hemorrhage are common findings of acute injury. In contrast, chronic reparative processes are typically atrophy, fibrosis, and nodular hyperplasia. Chemically induced proliferative lesions are uncommon in the adrenal cortex. The adrenal medulla contains chromaffin cells (that produce epinephrine, norepinephrine, chromogranin, and neuropeptides) and ganglion cells. Proliferative lesions of the medulla are common in the rat and include diffuse or nodular hyperplasia and benign and malignant pheochromocytoma. Mechanisms of chromaffin cell proliferation in rats include excess growth hormone or prolactin, stimulation of cholinergic nerves, and diet-induced hypercalcemia. There often are species specificity and age dependence in the development of chemically induced adrenal lesions that should be considered when interpreting toxicity data.  (+info)

(8/202) New adrenal-scanning agent.

A new adrenal-specific compound, 6beta-iodomethyl-19-norcholest-5(10)-en-3beta-ol(NCL-3-I), which is derived from 19-iodocholesterol (CL-19-I), has been found. Tissue distribution studies have revealed that the rat adrenal gland accumulates ten times more NCL-6-131-I than CL-19-131-I. The advantage of NCL-6-131-I as a possible adrenal-scanning agent is discussed.  (+info)

Therapy is dictated by hemorrhage severity and associated injuries. For minor hemorrhages with associated injuries not requiring operative intervention, pain control and avoidance of increased intra-abdominal pressure may be adequate [3]. If hemorrhage is more severe, transarterial embolization may be attempted [4]. Infarction resulting from embolization is unlikely given the triple arterial supply of the gland [4]. Open repair remains the final option, particularly if associated injuries indicate surgical intervention. Mortality from adrenal hemorrhage ranges from 10-33% [2]. While bilateral adrenal hemorrhage does present a risk of adrenal insufficiency, unilateral hemorrhage does not appear to confer the same risk. Our patient underwent transarterial embolization of multiple superior pole branches originating from the right inferior phrenic artery using detachable microcoils and was discharged three days later ...
The most common adverse reactions reported are poor/reduced appetite, vomiting, lethargy/dullness, diarrhea, and weakness. Occasionally, more serious reactions, including severe depression, hemorrhagic diarrhea, collapse, hypoadrenocortical crisis or adrenal necrosis/rupture may occur, and may result in death.. In a US field study with 107 dogs, adrenal necrosis/rupture (two dogs) and hypoadrenocorticism (two dogs) were the most severe adverse reactions in the study. One dog died suddenly of adrenal necrosis, approximately one week after starting trilostane therapy. One dog developed an adrenal rupture, believed to be secondary to adrenal necrosis, approximately six weeks after starting trilostane therapy. This dog responded to trilostane discontinuation and supportive care.. Two dogs developed hypoadrenocorticism during the study. These two dogs had clinical signs consistent with hypoadrenocorticism (lethargy, anorexia, collapse) and post-ACTH cortisol levels ≤ 0.3 µg/dL. Both dogs responded ...

Adrenal gland disease is, unfortunately, a common disease of pet ferrets in the United States. Most affected ferrets are greater than 2 years old. While the exact cause of this condition has not been determined, it is believed that spaying and neutering ferrets plays a role. (This is a difficult situation as failure to spay or neuter can also result in life-threatening illness.) Removal of the testes or ovaries removes hormonal influence that appears to affect the adrenal gland. In the absence of hormonal feedback, the adrenal glands may overproduce several sex hormones causing a variety of symptoms. The overactive gland can eventually become cancerous. Genetics may also play a role in the development of adrenal gland disease.. The most common signs associated with this condition are hair loss, particularly on the tail, hips and shoulders. Some ferrets may become extremely itchy, and some have an oily appearance to the fur. Female ferrets may develop swelling of the vulva, and occasionally a ...

This is a ferret that is suffering from adrenal disease. Adrenal disease is a general term for any condition where one or multiple tumorous growths on the adrenal gland negatively affect the balance of hormone creation in the ferrets body. It can be treated through surgery or with a drug called Lupron, which helps stop the excess production of hormones caused by the tumor.
Adrenal crisis (also known as Addisonian crisis and acute adrenal insufficiency) is a medical emergency and potentially life-threatening situation requiring immediate emergency treatment. It is a constellation of symptoms that indicate severe adrenal insufficiency caused by insufficient levels of the hormone cortisol. This may be the result of either previously undiagnosed or untreated Addisons disease, a disease process suddenly affecting adrenal function (such as bleeding from the adrenal glands in Waterhouse-Friderichsen syndrome), suddenly stopping intake of glucocorticoids or an intercurrent problem (e.g. infection, trauma, in fact any form of physical or mental stress) in someone known to have Addisons disease or congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH). Characteristic symptoms are: Sudden penetrating pain in the legs, lower back or abdomen Confusion, psychosis, slurred speech Severe lethargy Convulsions Fever Hyperkalemia (elevated potassium level in the blood) Hypercalcemia (elevated ...
... disease is not a benign condition, though it is a slowly advancing disorder. Continuous production of sex hormones not only causes the signs we see, but it also causes enlargement of the adrenal glands themselves. Enlarged adrenal glands proceed to a precancerous state, then to a benign cancerous state (adenoma), and eventually to a malignant cancerous state (adenocarcinoma). All ferrets should get frequent veterinary exams to monitor for adrenal gland enlargement, even if there are no outward signs of adrenal disease. Once enlarged, adrenal glands usually require surgical removal. Another item of note - female ferrets can safely live with adrenal disease longer than male ferrets. Male ferrets get a swollen prostate which can block their urethra. This causes a life threatening urinary blockage which requires immediate treatment by a veterinarian. These are the most important reasons why adrenal disease is not an illness to be ignored.. ...
Adrenal disease is commonly seen in ferrets over 3 years old and is caused by adrenal gland tumours often associated with the left adrenal gland (60% - 70%). Females appear to be more affected than males (70%). Clinical signs include significant hair loss, muscle wastage, aggression and vulval enlargement in females. Diagnosis can be confirmed by assaying the adrenal sex hormones, oestradiol (E2), 17-Hydroxy-Progesterone (OHP) and cortisol (Ferret Adrenal Profile).. Additional diagnostic information may also be obtained by adding Androstenedione to the above hormones (Ferret Adrenal Profile PLUS). Cortisol alone is not a good diagnostic test for ferret adrenal neoplasia. Often the tumour has differentiated in such a way that cortisol is not its principal product.. ...
The adrenal glands in children can be affected by a variety of benign lesions. The diagnosis of adrenal lesions can be challenging, but assessment of morphologic changes in correlation with the clinical presentation can lead to an accurate diagnosis. These lesions can be classified by their cause: congenital (eg, discoid adrenal gland, horseshoe adrenal gland, and epithelial cysts), vascular and/or traumatic (eg, adrenal hemorrhage), infectious (eg, granulomatous diseases), enzyme deficiency disorders (eg, congenital adrenal hyperplasia [CAH] and Wolman disease), benign neoplasms (eg, pheochromocytomas, ganglioneuromas, adrenal adenomas, and myelolipomas), and adrenal mass mimics (eg, extralobar sequestration and extramedullary hematopoiesis ...

AIM To analyze patient demographics, pathology, surgical procedure and outcome in initial 24 consecutive patients who underwent laparoscopic adrenalectomy in our department. METHODS Twenty four patients underwent laparoscopic adrenalectomy between September 2000 and August 2005. There were 12 males and 12 females with a mean age of 44.6 years (range 25-68 years). The indications for adrenalectomy were pheochromocytoma (13 patients), Cushings syndrome (5 patients), myelolipoma (2 patients), adrenal cyst (2 patients), aldosteronoma (1 patient) and adrenal incidentaloma (1 patient). Nineteen of our patients with functioning adrenal tumours were prepared preoperatively for periods ranging up to 2 weeks by the endocrinologist. All laparoscopic adrenalectomies were performed via lateral transperitoneal approach using standard four-port technique. Patients with pheochromocytoma and Cushings syndrome were monitored in the surgical intensive care unit during immediate postoperative period. The clinical and
Introduction Adrenal insufficiency is a serious complication of AIDS. Usually the integrity of HPA (Hypothalamo pituitary) axis is assessed by measuring cortisol response to 250μg of ACTH. Recent studies have shown that lower ACTH dose increases the sensitivity of the procedure. In the present study we have tried to estimate prevelance of adrenal insufficiency using low dose ACTH test (1μg). Primary objective To estimate the prevelance of adrenal insufficiency in AIDS patients using low dose ACTH test. Research design and methods 50 patients with confirmed diagnosis of HIV were included in the study. History and physical examination were recorded. Lab investigations included Cd4 count, serum cortisol and low dose acth stimulation test. Data of patients with adrenal insufficiency (GROUP 1) was compared with those without adrenal dysfunction (GROUP 2). Stastical analysis was done using appropriate tests. Results 37/50 (74%) of study subjects had adrenal insufficiency. Basal cortisol in (GROUP 1) ...

en] We aimed to investigate the dynamics of adrenocorticotropin (ACTH) and cortisol secretion in pituitary-dependent Cushings syndrome with bilateral macronodular adrenal hyperplasia presenting as a single adrenal macronodule, and to determine the imaging characteristics of this syndrome. Three female patients were studied. Plasma ACTH and serum cortisol secretion were studied by determining their rhythmicity and pulsatility and their responses to the administration of ovine corticotropin-releasing factor, thyrotropin-releasing hormone, metyrapone, tetracosactrin, insulin and dexamethasone. Techniques used to localize the anatomical lesion were bilateral simultaneous inferior petrosal sinus sampling, magnetic resonance examination of the pituitary, computed tomography (CT) scanning and [75Se]cholesterol scintigraphy of the adrenal glands. Plasma ACTH and serum cortisol levels were measured using a commercial radioimmunoassay and an immunoradiometric assay. The ACTH and cortisol pulse number and ...

Adrenal lesions can be functional or non functional. Non-functional adrenal tumors frequently present as an incidental finding on CT or MR imaging. The indication for their removal lies in the size of adrenal mass; whether large (,5cm) at diagnosis, or enlarging on serial examination. The small size of the adrenal gland, the benign nature of most adrenal tumors and the difficulty of gaining access to the organ by open surgical means make the laparoscopic approach particularly suitable for adrenalectomy. Ever since, Gagner reported first Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy in 1992, it has become a new gold standard for removing benign adrenal gland and has replaced open surgical procedures. Many reports have confirmed the advantages of Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy over open adrenalectomy. Laparoscopy offers a shorter hospital stay, decrease in postoperative pain, early return to activity and improved cosmesis. We have done laparoscopic adrenalectomy in 32 cases; age range varies from 8 - 60 years. Average ...

A 37 year old black female presented with congestive cardiac failure, 2 months postpartum. She developed spontaneous hypoglycaemia and symptoms of acute adrenal crisis (hypotension, nausea, abdominal pain and tachycardia with small thready pulse), which responded to i.v. dextrose, sodium chloride and hydrocortisone. Biochemical investigations revealed low serum cortisol and plasma adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) levels. The patient initially showed an impaired cortisol response to intramuscular aqueous tetracosactrin, but an exuberant response after priming with intramuscular tetracosactrin depot. These findings, together with the normal remaining pituitary function, led us to conclude that this patient had isolated ACTH deficiency associated with congestive cardiac failure and acute adrenal crisis.. ...

While the exact cause of this condition has not been determined, it is believed that spaying and neutering ferrets at an early age plays a role. This is problematic because failing to spay females can result in life-threatening illness, while neutering males reduces odor and aggression. Removal of the testes or ovaries removes hormonal influences that appear to affect the adrenal gland.

The diagnosis of the adrenal insufficiency requires complex clinical, laboratory and imagistic investigations. The study group was represented by 59 cases of adrenal insufficiency hospitalized in the Clinic of Endocrinology Timisoara, Romania, during the period 2000 2010 (age=42.10±16.30 years; F/M ratio=43/16). The patients were divided in two groups: primary adrenal insufficiency (42.37%) and secondary adrenal insufficiency (57.63%). In the group of primary adrenal insufficiency, the autoimmune Addison s disease represented 84% cases while the pituitary tumors had the highest incidence (44.12%) between the causes of the secondary adrenal insufficiency followed by Sheehan s syndrome (29.41%). Forty-eight percent cases of autoimmune Addison s disease associated different autoimmune disorders, like: chronic autoimmune thyroiditis (66.67% cases), Graves disease (25% cases), gonadal failure, vitiligo, rheumatoid arthritis. Two patients with autoimmune Addison s disease presented subclinical ...

Addisons disease (also known as chronic adrenal insufficiency, or hypocortisolism) is a rare endocrine disorder. It occurs when the adrenal glands, seated above the kidneys, fail to produce enough of the hormone cortisol and, sometimes, the hormone aldosterone. Addisons disease refers specifically to primary adrenal insufficiency, in which the adrenal glands themselves malfunction.

Since 1992, transabdominal LA(laparoscopic adrenalectomy) has been a standard method of adrenalectomy. This traditional method has been used widely because this procedure provides wide view of the whole abdomen which is familiar to surgeons. But due to its unique location at retroperitoneum, adrenal is still not easy to approach. So various retroperitoneal approaches were designed and adjusted. Among those, PRA(posterior retroperitoneal adrenalectomy) has showed good outcomes in many institutes. PRA facilitates direct approach to kidney and adrenal gland, and so operative time can be shortened. But there has been no randomized controlled trial between these two methods.. Therefore, as experienced surgeons in both methods, we want to practice this study. ...
I have some patches this summer on my face as well for the first time. Pigmentation problems are usually endocrine related, though they can be triggered by things like hair dyes and perfumes. Mine is around the hairline so Im wondering if me coloring my hair darker this summer has triggered it, something in the dark dye. Vitiligo is defined as only hypopigmentation, or lack of pigment. Hyperpigmentation is a different problem. Vitiligo is considered to be an autoimmune disease, though it can be brought on by hypothyroidism, and many people who have vitiligo often have hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation on the arms and nipples and lips, I mean very black abnormal pigmentation can be a sign of Addisons disease--which also can be autoimmune--your immune system attacks the adrenals.

Testing the Thyroid can be controversial and confusing as most physicians usually only test TSH to determine thyroid function. They have been trained that it is not usually necessary to do any further testing causing many people become discouraged. They have a normal TSH but continue to have low thyroid symptoms. Additional testing of T4, T3, and reverse T3 is also necessary to fully assess thyroid function. Additionally, testing of thyroid antibodies, TPO and Anti-TG can indicate autoimmune disease. Completion of a thorough patient history along with individualized lab testing are essential to individualize a treatment plan. Everything must be balanced to treat the thyroid conditions properly. The most important thing to remember with treatment of thyroid disease is to treat each person as an individual. Thyroid disease cant be approached as a one size fits all therapy. Screening for adrenal dysfunction and unbalanced sex hormones must be done at the same time as screening and testing for ...
Amenorrhea is a sign of a potentially serious problem for athletes, now and for their future health. The hormonal imbalance causing menstrual dysfunction can adversely affect sports performance. But the long term risks of such hormonal imbalance include infertility, osteoporosis, sexual and adrenal dysfunction.. Overtraining and its associated lifestyle factors, especially diet, contributes to amenorrhea and has been termed the overtraining syndrome. Endurance athletes, those focused on aesthetics, and those involved with high-intensity training and competition are at greatest risk.. In the study cited above, 60% of the group had diets deficient in calories and nutrients, especially protein, healthy fats, and calcium. This is frequently accompanied by excessively low body weight and body fat. Femoral fat stores - those around the hips, buttocks, and thighs are important for female health. While some amenorrheic athletes consume an energy-deficient diet, others consume the same total calories as ...

An adrenal crisis (AC) is a major cause of morbidity in hypoadrenal patients. However, there is little information available on the incidence and underlying causes of AC. The aim of the present study was to describe the incidence of AC in New South Wales (NSW), Australia. Using a health department database, we selected de-identified data on all adults aged 20 years and over who were treated in any hospital in NSW between July1, 2000-June 30, 2011, with either a principal or secondary diagnosis of an AC. AC admission rates were calculated overall and within age categories. Frequencies of co-morbid diagnoses were analysed by age and sex groups. Poisson regression was used to assess the significance of the observed change in AC related admissions with age, while controlling for any secular trends by including year in the model. Chi sq tests were used to assess the differences in frequencies of categorical variables between groups. 824 patients received treatment for an AC in hospital, corresponding to 74.9
There are two primary conditions of the adrenal system and the endocrine system in your pets body that are oftentimes brought about by adrenal gland tumors. The first of these, Cushings Disease, is the result of the overproduction of the hormone known as cortisol. There are a variety of potential causes for Cushings Disease, but one of the most common of these is a tumor on one or both of the adrenal glands. Cushings disease is characterised by a wide array of different symptoms and can affect your pets metabolism, his coat and shedding patterns, his digestion and more. The second condition which is typically linked to adrenal gland tumors is known as Addisons Disease. Addisons Disease is the opposite problem of Cushings Disease; in the case of this condition, your pets adrenal glands produce a quantity of hormone that is too low for your pets system. This disease is oftentimes considered to be more immediately problematic and dangerous to your dogs health than Cushings Disease is, ...
Meanwhile, the adrenal test that was done to assess if Avas adrenal function has been reactivated came back undetectable, meaning that her adrenal glands are not working right now. You may recall that long-term steroid treatment suppresses adrenal function, making the body think it doesnt need to produce the bodys natural version of steroids. Now that Ava has been weaned off steroids, her adrenal glands need to kick in and start producing again. Since they are not right now, Ava will need to take hydrocortisone three times a day until they do. The concern here is that adrenal suppression can result in adrenal crisis, which is a life-threatening medical emergency. Typically any additional demands/stress on the body (e.g. infection) can trigger adrenal crisis. As a result, Mike and Esther have been trained on how to draw up and administer an injection in the event that Ava goes into adrenal crisis (similar to giving an Epi-pen for anaphylaxis). The doctor said Avas adrenal test was extremely ...

Do not confuse acute adrenal crisis with Addison disease. In 1855, Thomas Addison described a syndrome of long-term adrenal insufficiency that develops over months to years, with weakness, fatigue, anorexia, weight loss, and hyperpigmentation as the primary symptoms.
Disease associated with hyperactivity of the adrenal gland is common in ferrets in North America that are more than 3 - 4 years old. In dogs and cats, this is condition is called hyperadrenocorticism or Cushings disease. It usually results from a pituitary gland tumor that produces a hormone causing the adrenal glands to produce excessive amounts of a steroid called cortisol. In ferrets, true Cushings disease does not occur. Although hyperactive adrenal glands and adrenal gland tumors occur, the overactive glands do not produce excessive cortisol levels. Instead, there is an increased production of other hormones (especially various sex hormones like estradiol and progesterone). When ferrets have adrenal gland disease, the most common initial sign is hair loss on the flanks, with or without pruritus (itchiness). Affected female ferrets develop an enlarged vulva, while males often have problems with urination due to prostate enlargement. Hair loss and a swollen vulva are also common signs of ...

Looking for online definition of Adrenal gland disorders in the Medical Dictionary? Adrenal gland disorders explanation free. What is Adrenal gland disorders? Meaning of Adrenal gland disorders medical term. What does Adrenal gland disorders mean?
The adrenal glands are endocrine glands located directly on top of the kidneys. Their main function is to secrete vital hormones and steroids during times of stress, as well as govern many different bodily functions. The hormones that the adrenal glands secrete are primarily derived from amino acids or lipids. The right adrenal gland is pyramid-shaped, while the left adrenal gland is shaped like a crescent moon. They have an irregular surface configuration, are enclosed in a capsule made of connective tissue, and have a liberal blood supply from the superior, middle, and inferior suprarenal arteries.. The outer portion of each gland is called the adrenal cortex, and it has three zones of cells. Each zone can be identified under a microscope based on different structural features; additionally, the zones can be distinguished solely based on their different functions. The outermost layer is called the zona glomerulosa, and it primarily produces mineralcorticoids to regulate blood pressure. When ...

Data on the clinical relevance and clinical course are limited. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to report on the frequency, characteristics, and progression of adrenal lesions in polyposis patients. DESIGN: This was a historical cohort study. SETTINGS: The study was performed at the Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam. PATIENTS: All of the patients with familial adenomatous polyposis, attenuated familial adenomatous polyposis, and MUTYH-associated polyposis were included. Medical charts and imaging reports were analyzed for data on adrenal lesions. A radiologist reassessed all of the images. Patients had not routinely been screened for adrenal lesions. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The frequency, ...

Addisons disease is primary adrenocortical insufficiency from bilateral adrenal cortex destruction. Tuberculosis used to be the most frequent etiology but now is second to autoimmune disease atrophy. Long-term steroid therapy causes adrenal cortex atrophy from disuse, and if steroids are abruptly withdrawn, symptoms of adrenal failure may develop rapidly. This is now the most common cause of addisonian-type crisis. Less common etiologies of Addisons disease are infection, idiopathic hemorrhage, and replacement by metastatic carcinoma. The most frequent metastatic tumor is from the lung, and it is interesting that there often can be nearly complete replacement without any symptoms.. The salt-wasting forms of congenital adrenal hyperplasia-due to congenital deficiency of certain enzymes necessary for adrenal cortex hormone synthesis-might also be included as a variant of Addisons disease.. Weakness and fatigability are early manifestations of Addisons disease, often preceded by infection or ...
Cushings syndrome is a myriad of abnormalities that are the result of hypersecretion of corticosteroids by the adrenal cortex. An overproduction of cortisol, the hormone that controls the adrenal gland, by the pituitary gland, which stimulates the adrenal glands to produce corticosteroids, may be one cause. In addition, certain lung cancers and other tumors outside the pituitary gland may produce corticotropins. Other causes include benign (noncancerous) or cancerous tumors on the adrenal glands. Cushings syndrome is rare in children and more commonly seen in adults.. ...
Addisons disease develops when the adrenal glands, which are above the kidneys, are not able to make enough of the hormones cortisol and, sometimes, aldosterone. Your body needs both of these hormones to work as it should. Cortisol helps the body cope with extreme physical stress from illness, injury, surgery, childbirth, or other reasons. Aldosterone helps the body hold on to the salt it needs, and it keeps your blood pressure steady.. Normally, the level of these hormones increases through a chain reaction. First, the hypothalamus in the brain makes a hormone that the pituitary gland needs to make another hormone called ACTH. ACTH then tells the adrenal glands to make cortisol or aldosterone. But with Addisons disease, the adrenal glands cant make enough of the hormones.. If you have Addisons disease, you need to take medicine for the rest of your life to replace the hormones your body cant make. If you dont treat the disease, an adrenal crisis may occur that can lead to death because of ...

Treatment of Adrenal Incidentaloma:Management of an incidentally found adrenal mass in a patient without a known primary malignancy will depend upon the size of the mass, its characteristics on the CT or MRI scan, and whether hormonal tests indicate that the tumor is producing excessive adrenal hormones.The two options for treating adrenal incidentaloma are:Monitoring its appearance with a series of CT or MRI scans, orRemoving the adrenal mass with minimally invasive surgery, usually laparoscopically. It typically involves removal of the mass and the adrenal gland (adrenalectomy). In select cases, removal of only the tumor may be recommended (partial adrenalectomy). This surgery may be done through a single small incision in the abdomen (Single Site laparoscopic surgery) or through 3-4 small keyhole incisions. Robotic surgery may also be recommended by your surgeon. If the lesion is large and/or looks suspicious on the CT or MR imaging, the mass is secreting excessive adrenal hormones. Surgery recovery
Adrenal glands are ductless glands that belong to the endocrine system of the body (related to kidneys). They are triangular in shape and are found on top of the kidneys. They are 1-2 inches in length and weigh less than one ounce. They control more than 35 hormones in our body-these glands are very powerful. They are the anti-stress glands that help the body fight stress and regulate salt balance, water and blood pressure. Proper functioning is very important for the energy, resilience and endurance of the body.

I will be competing in the Mozart 100 race in Salzburg on June 20th. 100km in the mountains where they filmed the Sound of Music! I am raising money for the CARES Foundation, an organisation that helps those living with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH). CAH is a family of inherited disorders affecting the adrenal glands. Classical CAH must be detected at birth to avoid an adrenal crisis, which can lead to death. Once detected, CAH can fortunately be managed with medication and, with adequate care, affected individuals go on to live normal lives. My family has been personally affected by CAH, with my daughter having been born in a country where screening at birth is not done. Through my running I aim to build crucial awareness, and fundraise for a fantastic organisation doing CAH research and support worldwide. All donations through this site go directly to the CARES Foundation.

Your adrenal glands are two tiny pyramid-shaped pieces of tissue situated right above each kidney. Their job is to produce and release, when appropriate, certain regulatory hormones and chemical messengers.. Adrenaline is manufactured in the interior of the adrenal gland, called the adrenal medulla. Cortisol, the other chemical from the adrenal gland, is made in the exterior portion of the gland, called the adrenal cortex. The cortex also secretes androgens, estrogens, and progestins. Cortisol, commonly called hydrocortisone, is the most abundant - and one of the most important - of many adrenal cortex hormones. Cortisol helps you handle longer-term stress situations.. In addition to helping you handle stress, these two primary adrenal hormones, adrenaline and cortisol, along with others similarly produced, help control body fluid balance, blood pressure, blood sugar, and other central metabolic functions.. In the heightened nervous state of adrenal burnout, the body overproduces adrenaline, ...

Incidental adrenal masses seen on abdominal CT scans of low-risk patients are almost always benign and do not need any imaging follow-up, according to a large study of patients. This finding is significant because incidental adrenal lesions are seen in about 5 percent of CT examinations, study authors say.

Gradual destruction and/or shrinking of the adrenal cortex is the most common cause of Addisons Disease. Autoimmune disorders are the cause in about 70 percent of all reported cases. Instead of identifying foreign invaders such as bacteria or viruses and killing them, the immune system makes antibodies that attack the bodys own tissues or organs and slowly destroys them. When at least 90 percent of the adrenal cortex has been destroyed, adrenal insufficiency, i.e., Addisons Disease occurs. Tuberculosis accounts for about 20 percent of all cases in developed countries. Less common causes of Addisons disease may be due to fungal infections; cancer cells spreading from other parts of the body to the adrenal glands; surgical removal of the adrenal glands and amyloidosis. In amyloidosis disease a starchy substance called amyloid is deposited in abnormal places throughout the body interfering with the function of whatever structure it is present within..

The most specific test to diagnose Addisons disease is the ACTH stimulation test. It measures blood and urine cortisol after receiving an injection of ATCH. There is a rapid test also where measurements of cortisol are taken after 30 and 60 minutes after injection. In a healthy person, the cortisol will rise in blood and urine; however, in a person with Addisons disease, there will be little to no change in cortisol levels.. When an abnormal response to the ACTH test is present, a longer CRH stimulation test is applied to determine the cause of the adrenal insufficiency. In this test, synthetic CRH is given intravenously and blood cortisol is measured in intervals over a two-hour period. Patients having primary adrenal insufficiency have high ACTHs but do not produce cortisol. Patients with secondary adrenal insufficiency have deficient cortisol responses, but absent or delayed ACTH responses. An absent ATCH response is caused by the pituitary, where a delayed response points to the ...

Measurement of 24-h urinary free cortisol (UFC) provides the most sensitive and specific diagnostic information for adrenal malfunctions, especially for Cushing syndrome (1)(2). The existing methodologies include immunoassays (3)(4)(5) and HPLC, with and without solid-phase extraction and derivatization (6)(7). Immunoassays for UFC are precise but overestimate the concentration because of antibodies cross-reactivity with various metabolites and with synthetic corticoids having a chemical configuration similar to that of cortisol (8). HPLCs, on the other hand, although very specific, require large volumes of mobile phase, as well as sample pretreatment. Capillary electrophoresis (CE) overcomes many of these problems through the use of an open-tubular format, thus avoiding interaction of analytes with the solid-phase resin. Earlier, we reported the feasibility of rapid UFC detection in solid-phase extraction CE with a neutral capillary (9). Using a neutral capillary, we could demonstrate a ...
Most cases of Addisons disease are caused by the gradual destruction of the adrenal cortex, the outer layer of the adrenal glands, by the bodys own immune system. About 70 percent of reported cases of Addisons disease are due to autoimmune disorders, in which the immune system makes antibodies that attack the bodys own tissues or organs and slowly destroy them. Adrenal insufficiency occurs when at least 90 percent of the adrenal cortex has been destroyed. As a result, often both glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid hormones are lacking. Sometimes only the adrenal gland is affected, as in idiopathic adrenal insufficiency; sometimes other glands also are affected, as in the polyendocrine deficiency syndrome.. The polyendocrine deficiency syndrome is classified into two separate forms, referred to as type I and type II. Type I occurs in children, and adrenal insufficiency may be accompanied by underactive parathyroid glands, slow sexual development, pernicious anemia, chronic candida ...
A small defect within the functioning of these glands can ruin hormones in your body and result in endocrine disorder. Endocrine disorder treatment methods are very important for that proper functioning of glands. There are lots of reputed hospitals that cope with endocrine disorders treatment in India. Endocrine illnesses are often treated by controlling just how much hormone your body generates. If the issue is the reduced generation of the hormone, it may be treated with the aid of hormone supplements. There are various kinds of Endocrine disorders. Diabetes is among the most typical endocrine illnesses. Other endocrine disorders include:. Adrenal insufficiency: This can be a condition once the adrenal gland undersecretes the hormone, cortisol, and often, aldosterone.. Cushings disease: People or children taking high doses of corticosteroids are affected out of this disease.. Gigantism (acromegaly) along with other growth hormones problems: Once the anterior pituitary gland produces an ...
The cells of the adrenal cortex are of mesodermal origin, in contrast to the neuroectodermal cells of the adrenal medulla. Human embryonic adrenogonadal progenitor cells first appear at around the fourth week of gestation between the urogenital ridge and dorsal mesentery. These progenitor cells give rise to the steroidogenic cells of the gonads and to the adrenal cortex. The adrenal and gonadal cells then separate-the adrenal cells migrate retroperitoneally to the cranial pole of the mesonephros, and the gonadal cells migrate caudally. Between the seventh and eighth weeks of development, sympathetic cells from the neural crest invade the primitive adrenal and become the adrenal medulla. By the end of the eighth week, the rudimentary adrenal has become encapsulated and is associated with the upper pole of the kidney, which at this time is much smaller than the adrenal. ...

In its early stages, adrenal insufficiency can be difficult to diagnose. A review of a patients medical history based on the symptoms, especially the dark tanning of the skin, will lead a doctor to suspect Addisons disease.. A diagnosis of Addisons disease is made by laboratory tests. The aim of these tests is first to determine whether levels of cortisol are insufficient and then to establish the cause. X-ray exams of the adrenal and pituitary glands also are useful in helping to establish the cause.. ACTH Stimulation Test. This is the most specific test for diagnosing Addisons disease. In this test, blood cortisol, urine cortisol, or both are measured before and after a synthetic form of ACTH is given by injection. In the so-called short, or rapid, ACTH test, measurement of cortisol in blood is repeated 30 to 60 minutes after an intravenous ACTH injection. The normal response after an injection of ACTH is a rise in blood and urine cortisol levels. Patients with either form of adrenal ...

Discussion: Adrenal cortical adenomas and carcinomas are rare tumors but with the use of high resolution imaging, such as CT and MRI, incidentally discovered adrenal masses have become a common finding. The diagnostic evaluation of incidental adrenal lesions includes imaging modalities such as CT with and without contrast, MRI and PET, hormonal evaluation, and FNA in certain clinical settings, particularly to exclude metastasis. In up to 20% of cases, these incidental lesions may cause abnormal hormone secretion without obvious clinical manifestations, while nonfunctioning incidental adrenal lesions less than 5 cm are likely to be benign. Distinguishing an adrenal cortical adenoma from carcinoma is a well-known diagnostic challenge in surgical pathology, and thus, in fine needle aspiration cytology. Proposed criteria correlating with subsequent malignant behavior include the combination of three or more of the following: high nuclear grade, greater than 5 mitoses per 50 high-power fields, ...
Conns syndrome is a condition in which he adrenal gland makes too much aldosterone. Too much aldosterone causes the body to retain sodium and lose potassium, resulting in an increase in blood pressure. The disease is caused by a tumor, or by an enlargement of the adrenal gland due to another disease process, such as cirrhosis of the liver. In addition to high blood pressure, Conns syndrome causes episodes of numbness, muscle weakness, headache, increased thirst, and increased urination. Treatment consists of medications to reduce the size of the affected adrenal gland, or surgical removal of tumors. Treatment can either induce remission or control the symptoms of Conns syndrome, according to Merck Manuals Medical Library..

EPIDEMIOLOGY OF HIV ASSOCIATED SALIVARY GLAND DISEASE AND ENLARGEMENT. Head and neck lesions associated with HIV arise in over 50% of HIV- positive patients and occur in nearly 80% of all patients with AIDS.4,5 The average prevalence of HIV associated salivary gland disease in Africa was estimated to be 19%,6 with a study from Tanzania reporting prevalence to be as high as 47%.7 In other developing countries such as Thailand, the prevalence of HIV associated salivary gland disease is low at 1%.6 Prevalence of salivary gland enlargement in HIV-infected patients as reported from European and North America studies is about 1%-10%,8 with BLEC present in 3%-6% of these cases.4,9 In a recent South African study, 23.3% of patients were diagnosed with BLEC.10 Reasons for the high prevalence rates of HIV- associated salivary gland disease in Africa are unknown. It may be due to the presence of HLA-DR5 and untreated advanced stage AIDS in Africans.6 Malnutrition is rife in many African countries and this ...
A common cause of salivary gland disease is a blocked salivary gland duct. This is usually due to a salivary gland stone. These tiny but solid calcium deposits are termed sialoliths. If one of them breaks free from the main gland and passes into the salivary gland duct, it can get half way and then get stuck.. A blocked duct means that no saliva can escape and the gland can become swollen and painful.. If bacteria build up and start growing in the blocked off gland, this can escalate into a serious infection that can spread into the blood.. ...
Parotid lumps may pose a diagnostic dilemma that could be helped by classifying patients into one of five groups. Many of the conditions that involve the parotid glands evolve insidiously, and diagnostic delay is a common problem.. Parotid gland disease can be broadly broken down into five categories: obstructive causes; infection; autoimmune disorders; underlying systemic disorders; and tumours. It is also helpful to consider the presenting symptoms in terms of either single or multi-gland involvement, and the type of swelling present (recurrent swelling, diffuse swelling or a well-defined lump - see table 1), as this information helps differentiation between the five diagnostic categories of disease. Age also has a bearing on the likely cause of parotid disease: infective causes are more common in children; obstructive, inflammatory and benign tumours predominate in middle age; and cancerous lumps are prevalent in old age.. Two major advances in recent years have changed the management of ...
Objectives: The objectives of this study were to investigate the feasibility of clinical application of magnetic resonance (MR) virtual endoscopy as a presurgical procedure before sialoendoscopy and to evaluate its value in the diagnosis of obstructive salivary gland diseases and preoperative visualization of endoluminal views.. Study Design: This study presents our initial experience to use MR virtual endoscopy for the presurgical visualization of salivary duct lumen and ductal pathologies in comparison to the sialoendoscopy findings in a feasibility study.. Methods: Six consecutive patients with suspected obstructive salivary gland diseases underwent MR sialography with a three-dimensional fast imaging using steady-state acquisition. The three-dimensional MR data were transferred to an independent workstation and were postprocessed with navigator software to generate three-dimensional reconstruction and virtual endoscopic images. The fly-through mode was used to imitate the sialoendoscopic ...
A stricture in a salivary gland duct is essentially a narrowing of the duct. When salivary flow is stimulated the duct may be too narrow to allow it to pass through quickly and act as a bottle neck. The saliva builds up and causes a swelling of the salivary gland in a similar way to a stone causing a local blockage. The swelling usually settles within an hour or so.. Strictures often affect the parotid gland and can be treated by stretching the duct with an endoscope or a balloon. This is usually carried out under a local anaesthetic.. Both treatment of stones and strictures can often be managed by the use of sialdensocopy which is a specialist procedure undertaken regularly by very few surgeons in the UK. ...

HISTORY. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS) is a specialty which evolved over the last 60 years from a group of dental practitioners who were treating patients with facial fractures in collaboration with plastic surgeons, to its present form. Its consultants are trained in postgraduate general and oral surgery with a Fellowship diploma. They manage patients with diverse and complex problems within a well-defined anatomical area. Apart from dento-alveolar surgery and facial fractures, oral and maxillofacial surgeons are now expected to manage congenital craniofacial deformities, including cleft lip and palate, all oral and facial trauma, oral and facial cancers with reconstruction using local flaps and microvascular free tissue transfer. Other areas are management of salivary gland disease, temporomandibular joint disorders and surgical management of complex prosthodontic problems..

Our group of primary SS patients showed a 19% prevalence of anti-HCV antibodies by third generation ELISA while only 10% of the patients had HCV viraemia. Several studies have considered this question and detected prevalences ranging from 0-75%.4 5Discrepancies among the studies could be caused by: (1) different clinical criteria for the diagnosis of SS, (2) analysis of anti-HCV antibodies in serum, which can lead to false positive results because of hyperglobulinaemia or gammaglobulin treatment as noted by others4 and, (3) differences in the incidence of HCV among different populations.. It is of interest to note the presence of HCV infection exclusively in primary SS patients. This result could be attributed (1) to a pathogenic role of HCV in primary SS, as has been previously suggested with other viral agents,2 or (2) to the presence of a sicca syndrome similar to primary SS leading to the misclassification of asymptomatic HCV infected patients as primary SS.5 Morphological examination of the ...

Background: Salivary gland tumors are rare head and neck tumors with lymphoepithelial carcinoma (LEC) as a particularly infrequent variant. This study was an evaluation of the incidence of EBV infection in malignant salivary gland tumors with the emphasis on tumor type and geographical area. Methods: Five databases (PubMed, ScienceDirect, Scopus, Web of Science and Cochrane library) were searched for data on the prevalence of EBV in malignant salivary gland tumors. A random-effects meta-analysis was conducted with Comprehensive Meta-Analysis software version 2.0 (CMA 2.0) using the event rate (ER) for estimation of the incidence of EBV in the salivary gland tumor patients. Publication bias was lacking as assessed through funnel plot analysis with the Beggs and Eggers tests (P|0.05). Results: Out of 618 studies searched in databases, 19 reported the prevalence of EBV in malignant salivary gland tumors and were included in the present meta-analysis. The pooled ER of all studies was 44% [95%CI=21.5-69
Salivary gland impairment after radioiodine therapy (RIT) is a well-known iatrogenic artifact that includes recurrent episodes of sialadenitis, hyposalivation, dysgeusia, and dysphagia. Several therapy modalities have been suggested over the years to decrease these effects on the salivary glands. However, in cases where the salivary gland system is impaired prior to RIT, preserving its function becomes more challenging. We present three patients who underwent RIT with pre-existing insult to the salivary glands and discuss the treatment modality employed. A protocol for treating patients with pre-existing salivary gland impairment prior to RIT is proposed. The dental professional personnel should be aware of RIT insult to the salivary glands in order to preserve more maliciously the oral health in these patients. Management of impaired salivary glands subjected to additional RIT is mandatory to reduce further damage to the glands function primarily by combining interventional sialoendoscopy for ...
Background The most advocated clinical method for diagnosing salivary dysfunction is to quantitate unstimulated and stimulated whole saliva (sialometry). Since there is an expected and wide variation in salivary flow rates among individuals, the assessment of dysfunction can be difficult. The aim of this systematic review is to evaluate the quality of the evidence for the efficacy of diagnostic methods used to identify oral dryness. Methods A literature search, with specific indexing terms and a hand search, was conducted for publications that described a method to diagnose oral dryness. The electronic databases of PubMed, Cochrane Library, and Web of Science were used as data sources. Four reviewers selected publications on the basis of predetermined inclusion and exclusion criteria. Data were extracted from the selected publications using a protocol. Original studies were interpreted with the aid of Quality Assessment of Diagnostic Accuracy Studies (QUADAS) tool. Results The database searches ...
Figure 7. Marsupialization of Sublingual Salivary Mucocele. Photo courtesy of Fossum: Small Animal Surgery 3rd edition,br /,Copyright © 2007 by Mosby, Inc., an affiliate of Elsevier Inc.. Pharyngeal sialoceles can be treated with marsupialization. However, it is recommended that pharyngeal sialoceles be treated with resection due to the serious risks associated with upper airway obstruction and inability to swallow.. Zygomatic Sialadenectomy: Zygomatic sialoceles can be effectively treated with removal of the zygomatic salivary gland. The skin over the zygomatic arch is incised. The zygomatic arch is partially removed to expose the gland. The gland is carefully removed with blunt dissection. The zygomatic arch is then replaced using suture and holes drilled into the bone. The overlying subcutaneous tissues and skin is closed. Potential Complications. The potential for nerve damage and hemorrhage (bleeding) during surgery does exist, however, postoperative complications are uncommon when an ...
Simple palpation of the swelling under the neck or under the tongue is often all that is necessary to make the presumptive diagnosis of salivary mucocele. These swellings are soft and feel like fluid within a pocket of tissue. This is unlike the feel of a tumor that might cause a similar swelling in these areas. Tumors usually have a firm, often irregular, feel to them and may be painful to touch.. The definitive diagnosis is made by removal of a sample of the fluid from the swelling and examining it under the microscope. The fluid from a mucocele is usually clear or slightly yellow and thick like mucus. There are usually few cells seen in the sample. Special stains are used to determine if the fluid is saliva. It is important to make sure that the problem is not a pocket of infection (abscess) that might require different treatment.. No other tests are usually necessary to make the diagnosis. ...
A method of treating a recurring meibomian gland disorder in a patient, includes administering to a patient suffering from recurring meibomian gland disorder a composition comprising a therapeutically effective amount of an azalide antibiotic and a glucocorticoid. The method may thereby reduce the frequency of recurrence of the meibomian gland disorder.
In a previous study on Shiba dogs with CE, the median age was 4.9 years [6], which was almost comparable to the ages reported in other retrospective studies of dogs with IBD and CE [10-12]. Similarly, in our study, the median age of the Ls group was 5 years (mean 5.2). However, in the Ss group, the median age was 7.5 years (mean 7.6), and in all Shiba dogs, the median age was 7 years. Additionally, a negative correlation was observed between survival time and age in the analysis of all dogs. In a previous study, dogs requiring steroid therapy were middle-aged and older (mean: 6.5 years) [10]. Older Shiba dogs with CE may have different pathological mechanisms and poor responsiveness to steroid therapy compared with those of younger dogs. Thus, aging Shiba dogs with CE require attention because they may have a shorter survival time. Furthermore, it is predicted that dogs aged ,7 years have a higher risk of poor outcome.. There were no previous reports assessing the CIBDAI in Shiba dogs with CE; ...
The salivary glands are located around the mouth. They produce saliva, which moistens food to help with chewing and swallowing. There are 3 main pairs of salivary glands. The parotid glands are the largest. They are located in each cheek in front of the ears. Two submandibular glands are under the floor of the mouth under both sides of the jaw. Two sublingual glands are under the floor of the mouth. There are also thousands of small salivary glands lining the rest of the mouth. Salivary glands empty saliva into the mouth through ducts that open at various places in the mouth. Salivary gland tumors are rare. Swelling of the salivary glands is mostly due to: ...

Radiotherapy of malignancies in the head and neck often involves the major and minor salivary glands in the radiation field. Adverse effects, such as dry mouth symptoms, are common after such therapy. The aim of this thesis was to study longitudinal effects of fractionated irradiation to the head and neck on salivary gland function in man and in the rat and to test radioprotection from antioxidant vitamins (retinol, a-tocopherol and ^-carotene).. A sharp decrease in parotid saliva flow rate was seen after one week of irradiation in cancer patients, but in some patients recovery was seen two months after completed treatment. Loss and recovery of salivary gland function were dependent on the total dose given. Irradiation with doses of ,65 Gy to the parotid glands led to permanent loss of function in the majority of parotid glands, while recovery could be seen after irradiation with doses of ,52 Gy. Concentrations of some proteins and electrolytes in saliva were increased during irradiation but no ...

Researchers in NICHDs intramural and extramural programs advance the study of adrenal gland disorders. The Institutes research is aimed at understanding the genetic and molecular mechanisms leading to disorders that affect the adrenal gland, with emphasis on those that are developmental, hereditary, and associated with adrenal hypoplasia or hyperplasia, multiple tumors, and abnormalities in other endocrine glands. The researchers are also studying how to diagnose and treat adrenal gland disorders.
Labial salivary gland biopsy (LSGB) is the most important diagnostic tool for the diagnosis of Sjögrens syndrome (SS), but its diagnostic value is rarely studied. This study assessed the sensibility and specificity of LSGB, and the clinical profiles of patients who were referred for biopsy. Retrospective analysis of the histopathological reports from LSGB and medical report data from patients who underwent LSGB between 2008 and 2011 was conducted. About 290 biopsies were performed and 74 were excluded due to insufficient clinical data. Of the 216 patients, 0.46% was carrier of hepatitis C virus, 30.1% had primary SS (pSS), and 8.8% had secondary SS (sSS). Of the samples, 94.3% presented dryness symptoms, 51.6% experienced dryness only, 42.7% had systemic manifestations, and 66.9% presented low unstimulated salivary flow and/or Schirmers test. LSGB was necessary in 67.6% to confirm the presence of SS based on the American-European Consensus Group 2002 criteria (AECG). Based on specialists opinion,
We presented evidence to indicate that acinar cells isolated from submandibular glands of NOD mice with salivary dysfunction are more sensitive to TNF-α-induced apoptotic events than BALB/c control cells and that VIP prevents these effects. We also showed that NOD acinar cells are functional for cAMP signalling and amylase secretion through VIP receptors, although they express a number of apoptotic signals and mediators activated in resting conditions that were enhanced with TNF-α and prevented by VIP.. Our conclusions are based on three main observations. First, acinar cells isolated from submandibular glands of NOD mice undergoing salivary flow decline showed increased condensation of nuclear chromatin, caspase 3 activity and Bax, TNF-αR1 and TP53INP1α expression compared with control mice. Second, TNF-α enhanced apoptotic events in NOD acini at a concentration that did not modify various apoptotic mediators in BALB/c acini. However, the treatment of normal BALB/c acinar cells with a ...

extremely uncommon.10. Imaging of the salivary gland for sialolithiasis may be accomplished with plain radiography, sialography, ultrasonography, CT, and magnetic resonance imaging. Intraoral or occlusal view plain radiographs might be used to identify radio-opaque stones; 80-94.7% of submanbibular calculi are radio-opaque and can be visualized on plain radiograph.11 Parotid calculi are less likely to be radioopaque. USG has proven value in the diagnosis of sialolithiasis. It can be used to identify calculi that are greater than 1.5 mm and high mineral content with 99% accuracy.12 CT is very accurate at detecting and defining the location of salivary calculi. Sialography is rarely indicated and should be restricted to cases of sialadenitis related to radiolucent calculi. In our case, CT was done to exclude malignancy as erosion of oral cavity is a rare feature of sialolithiasis.10. Persistent sialolithiasis leads to stasis of salivary secretion. This predisposes the gland to recurrent ...
If a drain was left in the surgical site, your pet will experience several days of drainage. If the wound is bandaged, it will be necessary to change the bandage frequently. If the wound is not bandaged, it is helpful to apply warm compresses with a damp towel. This will help clean the skin in the area of the surgery and will help encourage drainage of fluid from the area.. Prognosis is excellent for a normal life after drainage of a mucocele and adequate removal of the affected salivary glands. Dogs do not suffer from a dry mouth following removal of the mandibular and sublingual glands, even if performed on both sides.. Postoperative complications are uncommon if the procedure is performed by an adequately trained surgeon. Occasionally a fluid pocket (seroma) may develop in the area where the mucocele was. This can either be drained or may be allowed to resolve by itself. Infections are possible but uncommon. If inadequate glandular tissue is removed, it is possible that the mucocele will ...
Saliva production, salivary flow & composition, and salivary dysfunction. Big impact on health. Not just about the quantity of saliva, but also the quality!
Salivary gland infections occur as painful swellings of any of the salivary glands. The parotid glands are located under the skin in front of the ear overlying the jaw bone, and the submandibular glands are located underneath the jaw. All of these glands produce saliva which is useful for chewing, swallowing, and maintenance of proper oral health.. Salivary gland infections occur when bacteria infect the normal salivary gland anatomy. When this occurs in the parotid gland it may cause painful fullness or swelling in front of the ear. When this occurs in a submandibular gland, painful tenderness may be felt below the jaw or in the neck. Infections are more likely to occur during times of dehydration when less saliva is made. Infections may be limited in nature, lasting only a period of days, or chronic, lasting for weeks.. Salivary gland infections are commonly treated with increasing water intake and massage. Increasing the saliva production by sucking on lemon wedges or hard candy may help as ...
An inflammation of the pancreas usually shows itself suddenly and unilaterally (for mumps but rather on both sides). Whether sialolith alone (without concurrent sialadenitis) triggers symptoms depends on its location and size. Typically, salivary gland inflammation and salivary stones noticed as a swelling of the affected gland and pain. Often take the symptoms while eating, because this increased saliva forms. In addition, the skin may become red in the area of ??the affected glands and fever. It is generally recommended for a salivary gland inflammation, stimulate the flow of saliva (through so-called salivary Locker: eg acidic, sugar-free candies, chewing gums or beverages), to clean the salivary gland by increased salivation and so may carry a small salivary stone outward. For the treatment of salivary gland inflammation, pain-relief and anti-inflammatory drugs are used; help antibiotics against bacterial pathogens. It is also advisable to remove one of the inflammation underlying salivary ...
Cyclic antidepressants are still a dominating group of psychotherapeutic drugs used in the treatment of depression. Dry mouth is one of their major side effects. In this study we analyzed the effects of the long-term administration of the tricyclic antidepressant desipramine and the reversibility of this treatment following a 15-day washout period on different parameters in parotid gland function in aging rats. We hypothesized that glandular function would be decreased, and recovery delayed with age. Drug treatment affected body weight, glandular weight, DNA synthesis, and the concentration of soluble and structural membrane proteins. Surprisingly, parotid flow rate was increased with desipramine in all ages. While the concentration of secreted proteins was generally decreased with treatment, total proteins secreted were quite stable. SDS/PAGE analysis revealed prominent changes with desipramine. Amylase activity was depressed with treatment, but only low residual cellular enzyme activity was ...
Damage to major and minor salivary glands causes alteration in quantity, quality and consistency of saliva. Salivary glands are radio-sensitive organs. Hyposalivation depends on reduced water and protein rich secretion in parotid glands and loss of function depends on mucous secretion of submandibular glands and minor salivary glands. Saliva turns into a white and viscous fluid, secondary to pH acidification, decrease in bicarbonate concentration and increase in sodium, calcium and magnesium. In addition to pH and electrolyte levels modifications, immunoproteins concentration is also altered, resulting in deleterious effects on oral flora with increase in Streptococcus mutans, Candida species and Lactobacillus species [22].. Although irradiation-induced damage in salivary gland was first described in 1911, its mechanism is still a debate [23]. Radiation-effect on salivary glands has been tested principally in parotid glands. Regional differences in radio-sensitivity have been, described in rat ...

Aluminum absorption leads to deposits in several tissues. In this study, we have investigated, to our knowledge for the first time, aluminum deposition in the salivary glands in addition to the resultant cellular changes in the parotid and submandibular salivary glands in a model of chronic intoxication with aluminum citrate in rats. Aluminum deposits were observed in the parotid and submandibular glands. Immunohistochemical evaluation of cytokeratin-18 revealed a decreased expression in the parotid gland with no changes in the submandibular gland. A decreased expression of α-smooth muscle actin was observed in the myoepithelial cells of both glands. The expression of metallothionein I and II (MT-I/II), a group of metal-binding proteins, which are useful indicators for detecting physiological responses to metal exposure, was higher in both glands. In conclusion, we have shown that at a certain time and quantity of dosage, aluminum citrate promotes aluminum deposition in the parotid and submandibular
Walvekar added that traditional management of the condition may also include salivary gland massage.. Another potential treatment option for sialadenitis is salivary endoscopy, which involves inserting a scope into the natural drainable pathway of the salivary glands and into the ducts where the practitioner tries to identify any scar tissue or blockages of the ductal system, Gillespie explained. The use of microinstruments, as well as irrigation and flushing with saline, can help rid the area of debris. Additionally, the application of antibiotics can be used to reduce infections, while steroids can help decrease inflammation of the glands.. An endoscopic assessment of the ducts, followed by salivary gland washout with saline and steroids, is a viable option, although there is not evidence to support having every patient undergo the procedure after RAI, Walvekar said.. "We dont know the true effect of the intervention. We generally see patients at the worst end of it, so they tend to ...

Abstract: Pleomorphic adenoma also called benign mixed tumor, is the most common salivary gland tumor. Most of these tumors occur in major salivary glands; Parotid gland happens to be the commonly involved one (about 90 %) and about 10 % of these occur in the minor salivary glands. The most common sites for pleomorphic adenoma of minor salivary glands are the palate, followed by the lips, the cheeks, floor of the mouth, tongue, tonsil, pharynx, the retromolar area and the nasal cavity. FNAC of intraoral swellings is rarely advised. Here, we are reporting a rare case of pleomorphic adenoma arising from the palate diagnosed on FNA ...
Selective iodide uptake and prolonged iodine retention in the thyroid is the basis for targeted radioiodine therapy for thyroid cancer patients, however, salivary gland dysfunction is the most frequent non-thyroidal complications. In this study we employed non-invasive SPECT functional imaging to quantify the temporal dynamics of thyroidal and salivary radioiodine accumulation in mice. At 60 min post radionuclide injection, radionuclide accumulation in the salivary gland was generally higher than that in thyroid due to much larger volume of the salivary gland. However, radionuclide accumulation per anatomic unit in the salivary gland was lower than that in thyroid and was comparable among mice of different age and gender. Differently, radionuclide accumulation per anatomic unit in thyroid varied greatly among mice. The extent of thyroidal radioiodine accumulation stimulated by a single dose of exogenous bovine TSH (bTSH) in T3-supplemented mice was much less than that in mice received neither ...

Bartholin gland cysts and abscesses are common problems in women of reproductive age. Although the cysts are usually asymptomatic, they may become enlarged or infected and cause significant pain. Often the clinician is tempted simply to lance the cyst or abscess, since this technique can be effective for other common abscesses. However, simple lancing of a Bartholin gland cyst or abscess may result in recurrence. More effective treatment methods include use of a Word catheter and marsupialization, both of which can be performed in the office.
High prevalence of thyroid disorders and growing awareness about suitable treatments for the same are observed in the emerging economies of Asia Pacific. With increasing access to thyroid disorders treatment, Asia Pacific is anticipated to exhibit the fastest growth as a lucrative market for such treatments. Increasing demand for thyroid gland disorders treatment is particularly witnessed from countries such as India, Japan, China, and Malaysia. These countries are substantially contributing to the growth of the thyroid gland disorders treatment market in Asia Pacific. Increasing consumption of generic formulations across the prominent economies of the region aids the rapid expansion of the market in Asia Pacific and also mitigates the issue of low sales revenue. As governments of the leading economies in Asia Pacific increase their investments in the healthcare sector, the thyroid gland disorders market is likely to gain much impetus ...
Most salivary gland tumors are benign and occur in parotid gland. The most common sign of a salivary gland tumor is a painless mass.
Purpose: To examine effects and mechanisms of transient activation of Hedgehog pathway on rescuing radiotherapy-induced hyposalivation in head and neck cancer survivors. Experimental Design: Mouse salivary glands and cultured human salivary epithelial cells were irradiated by single 15Gy dose. Hedgehog pathway was transiently activated in mouse salivary glands by shortly over-expressing Sonic hedgehog (Shh) transgene or administrating Smoothened Agonist and in human salivary epithelial cells by infecting with adenovirus encoding Gli1. Activity of Hedgehog signaling was examined by expression of Ptch1-lacZ reporter and endogenous Hedgehog target genes. Salivary flow rate was measured following pilocarpine stimulation. Salivary stem/progenitor cells (SSPCs), parasympathetic innervation and expression of related genes were examined by flow cytometry, salisphere assay, IHC, quantitative RT-PCR, Western blot and ELISA. Results: Irradiation does not activate Hedgehog signaling in mouse salivary ...

Salivary glands are located in the jaws of the lower part of the head, and are at the edges of the head (Brain) CT scans simulated in this study. Extension of the scan range inferiorly includes more or even the entire glands into the head scans. The dose to the glands can be 7.5 times of the default dose after an inferior extension of 3 cm for new-born (0-year-old) patients. For older patients, a 3-cm extension can still increase the dose to the glands by more than 2 times. With a 1-cm inferior extension or a 1-cm superior retraction, the dose to the glands can be doubled or halved, indicating the salivary gland dose is very sensitive to the location of the inferior edge of the head scan. Comparing the doses with 3cm superior retraction and the doses with 3cm inferior extension of the inferior range, the changes in salivary gland dose can be 27 times for newborn patients and 13 times for adults. The inferior extension of head scan range increases the salivary dose, and the extension is up to 8cm ...
