Conclusions: The nicotine dependence is directly related to sexual dysfunction, and it affects various stages of the sexual response cycle. One-quarter of individuals of nicotine dependence also met the threshold criteria of depression. The interventions as primary and primordial preventions with awareness building and health education may be a cost-effective measure to prevent tobacco-related deaths.

Exp Clin Endocrinol Diabetes DOI: 10.1055/a-1062-6167Around 5–10% of hypothyroid patients continue to experience profound and sometimes disabling symptoms, including fatigue, depression and impaired cognition, in spite of being adequately replaced biochemically. The use of the combination of levothyroxine and liothyronine and natural desiccated thyroid extract is controversial for reasons of costs, a lack of evidence of additional benefit over levothyroxine alone, and potential safety concerns. Clinical guidelines caution against the use of both, and advise that only in exceptional cases may a short trial be consider...

Conclusions: Quality of life increases significantly after surgery with a reduction of pain and swelling and decreased tendency to easy bruising. The high prevalence of hypothyroidism in lipedema patients could be related to the frequently observed lipedema-associated obesity. The low prevalence of diabetes, dyslipidemia, and hypertension appears to be a specific characteristic distinguishing lipedema from lifestyle-induced obesity.

This study was conducted among consecutive adults, who were admitted to the Department of Pulmonary Medicine, Marmara University, Istanbul between November 2015 and October 2018. Participants answered the questionnaires and underwent a sleep study with cardiorespiratory polygraphy. OSA was defined as an Apnoe-Hypopnoe-Index (AHI)≥15/h.In all, 1042 adults (334 women; 32.1%) were included. OSA was diagnosed in 589 (56.5%). In the OSA group, women were older (53.7±11.5 vs 47.8± 12.8 yrs; p

Discussion Holoprosencephaly (HPE) is a clefting problem of the brain. “[HPE] the result of incomplete or absent midline division of the embryonic forebrain into distinct cerebral hemispheres (prosencephalon) between the 18th and 28th day after conception.” There are four distinct subtypes: Alobar – both hemispheres are completely fused and are not separated into the left and right hemispheres. There is agenesis of the corpus callosum, arrhinencephaly and a single ventricle with fused thalami. Facial features are almost always affected. Semilobar – the cerebral hemispheres are fused anteriorly bu...

Conclusion: In conclusion, this study demonstrates that the influence of chronic diseases (bronchial asthma, diabetes mellitus type 1 and hypothyroidism) on olfactory function in childhood, if any, seems to be insignificant. This is partly in contrast to adult patients. Further research should be conducted in a subgroup of patients with bronchial asthma, allergic rhinitis, and atopic dermatitis or other comorbidities to better understand the association of allergic diathesis and olfactory function and the putative pathogenesis of olfactory dysfunction.What is known:• The association between smell impairment and chroni...
