Endocrine Pathophysiology, second edition, presents new insight into the immensely complex reactions that allow hormone interactions with receptors; the early. Generally a great book for medical school endocrinology. Very clear and easy to read. However, at times it was too simplistic. I appreciate that the material was.

A rare case of adrenal insufficiency induced by inhaled corticosteroids. J Am Geriatr Soc ; 61 5 : There are few studies investigating the risk of AI in adults. In the second report, a 38 year old male on high dose budesonide, developed symptoms of AI after decreasing his budesonide dose from 3.

This was confirmed by the short tetracosactrin test to be due to adrenal suppression [ 38 Wong J, Black P. Acute adrenal insufficiency associated with high dose inhaled steroids.

It should probably be performed by highly experienced surgeons to achieve the best cosmetic result. Excision with or without liposuction has been successfully used 48 , Surgical treatment of pubertal gynecomastia should generally be postponed until the completion of puberty to minimize the possibility of postoperative regrowth of breast tissue.

Figure 1 illustrates a suggested scheme for the evaluation and treatment of gynecomastia. Suggested algorithm for the management of gynecomastia.

Narula and H. Therefore, universal application of imaging seems unlikely to be cost-effective. In one study of male breast mammography, all of the men diagnosed with breast cancer also had physical findings that were suspicious for malignancy It is certainly true that asymptomatic men with incidentally discovered palpable breast tissue generally need only a careful history and physical examination and do not usually benefit from laboratory testing.

Factors that bear on this question include the potential seriousness of a positive laboratory finding e.

The perceived need to practice defensive medicine undoubtedly contributes, as well. Unfortunately, there is no consensus on this matter.

The issue may particularly arise in older men, in whom palpable breast tissue is a common incidental finding. Although hypogonadism is also common in this age group, it is not clear whether serum testosterone should be measured in all such individuals if they are truly asymptomatic i.

There would appear to be little clear benefit from testosterone treatment in the absence of symptoms, so I do not routinely obtain screening laboratory tests in such patients. In the realm of therapy, medical treatment has its own controversies. It has not yet been clearly established whether tamoxifen and raloxifene are of equal benefit, although it seems reasonably clear that both are more effective than aromatase inhibitors 36 , 45 , Surgical therapy is generally agreed to be the most effective means of restoring the normal contour of the breast, but many different techniques and approaches are in current use and are likely to be influenced by the degree of breast enlargement as well as the proportion of glandular and fibrous tissue vs.

In addition, not all patients treated surgically are pleased with the results Returning to the Case Our patient developed tender bilateral breast enlargement in the setting of recent cytotoxic chemotherapy for lymphoma.

There was no evidence of thyroid, renal, or hepatic disease.

His compensated primary hypogonadism was most likely a consequence of his cancer chemotherapy. Literature reports suggest that many although not all such patients with chemotherapy-induced gynecomastia will have spontaneous recovery of Leydig cell function over several months, with gradual improvement or disappearance of the breast enlargement and tenderness 30 , 65 — Alternatively, he could be offered testosterone supplementation or tamoxifen therapy, with a good chance that his gynecomastia would decrease in size and tenderness because his breast enlargement had been present for only a few months.

After an extensive discussion of all these options, he chose to forego active treatment, opting for continued observation.Diagnosis of endocrine disorders makes heavy use of clinical laboratory testing and that emphasis is reflected in this chapter. Lancet ; : However, Schwartz et al. Most such cases have a benign etiology or are idiopathic.
