Vacuum-assisted minimally invasive surgery —An innovative method for the operative treatment of gynecomastia
Gynecomastia is the most common benign enlargement of the mammary gland and adipose tissue in males. Because a feminine-looking chest contour can bring severe psychologic burden to patients, subcutaneous mastectomy has become the standard treatment for this condition. Conventional open surgery causes conspicuous scarring that may affect the appearance of the breast. We provide a novel surgical operative for the treatment of gynecomastia. (Source: Surgery)

Clinical and Biochemical Phenotype of Adolescent Males with Gynecomastia
Conclusions: The E2/TTE ratio may be a helpful tool in diagnosing gynecomastia. Altered E2/TTE ratio might be responsible for part of cases described previously as idiopathic. Additionally, weight loss does not imply reduction of breast size in boys, nonetheless it should be the first step before further treatment of prolonged gynecomastia.

EAA clinical practice guidelines —gynecomastia evaluation and management
ConclusionsThe purpose of GM assessment should be the detection of underlying pathological conditions, reversible causes (administration/abuse of aggravating substances), and the discrimination from other breast lumps, particularly breast cancer. Assessment should comprise a thorough medical history and physical examination of the breast and genitalia (including testicular ultrasound). A set of laboratory investigations may integrate the evaluation: testosterone (T), estradiol (E2), sex hormone ‐binding globulin (SHBG), luteinizing hormone (LH), follicular stimulating hormone (FSH), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), pro...

Adverse Effects Associated with Long-Term Administration of Azole Antifungal Agents
AbstractAzole antifungals are first-line options in the prophylaxis and treatment of invasive fungal infections. They are often used for prolonged (weeks to months) periods of time, particularly in patients with hematologic malignancies, or in those who have received a solid organ or hematopoietic stem cell transplant. Long-term use of azoles is associated with hepatotoxicity and hormone-related effects, including gynecomastia, alopecia, decreased libido, oligospermia, azoospermia, impotence, hypokalemia, hyponatremia, and (rarely) adrenal insufficiency. Voriconazole and posaconazole have been associated with peripheral ne...

Incidental 18F-NaF Uptake in Drug-Induced Gynecomastia
Gynecomastia is not uncommon in men older than 50 years of age and is characterized by glandular proliferation of breast tissue. Non-physiologic gynecomastia is mostly caused by a variety of external medical interventions. Medications that belong to classes of antiandrogens, antipsychotics, or antibiotics alter the levels of estrogen and testosterone and are commonly implicated in patients with gynecomastia. We are presenting a case of bilateral 18F-NaF uptake in the breast tissue of a 56-year-old man with known history of prostate cancer. (Source: Clinical Nuclear Medicine)

Eplerenone Versus Spironolactone in Resistant Hypertension: an Efficacy and/or Cost or Just a Men ’s Issue?
AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo review comparative efficacy and tolerability data between the two main mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRAs), spironolactone and eplerenone, in patients with resistant hypertension (HTN). The focus was whether spironolactone, being the classical non-selective agent that has been used for years, albeit with several anti-androgenic side effects, can be rivaled by eplerenone, an apparently weaker, but better tolerated, more selective MRA.Recent FindingsEvidence has accumulated that resistant HTN is generally volume-dependent, attributable to varying degrees of aldosterone excess with its at...

Atypical ductal hyperplasia in men with gynecomastia: what is their breast cancer risk?
ConclusionOur study is the first to provide follow-up information for males with ADH. With 6  years of mean follow-up, no male in our series has developed breast cancer. This suggests that either ADH in men does not pose the same risk as ADH in women or that surgical excision of symptomatic gynecomastia in men effectively reduces the risk of breast cancer.

Testosterone undecanoate supplementation together with human chorionic gonadotropin does not impair spermatogenesis in males with isolated hypogonadotropic hypogonadism: a retrospective study.
Abstract Gonadotropin therapy is commonly used to induce virilization and spermatogenesis in male isolated hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (IHH) patients. In clinical practice, 5.6%-15.0% of male IHH patients show poor responses to gonadotropin treatment; therefore, testosterone (T) supplementation can serve as an alternative therapy to normalize serum T levels and promote virilization. However, treatment with exogenous T impairs spermatogenesis and suppresses intratesticular T levels. This retrospective study aimed to determine whether oral testosterone undecanoate (TU) supplementation together with human chorionic...

Gynecomastia – Conservative and Surgical Management
Gynecomastia is defined as a unilateral or bilateral persistent benign mammary gland enlargement in men. Prevalence of asymptomatic gynecomastia is up to 65%. True gynecomastia must be distinguished from pseudogynecomastia. Typically, in true gynecomastia, a solid tissue mass is palpable below the nipple-areolar complex. Malignant changes such as male mammary carcinoma must always be ruled out. The causes of gynecomastia are diverse. An imbalance of female to male hormones triggers the onset of the disease. This imbalance can be caused by endogenous diseases like hyperthyroidism, chronic liver disease, primary or secondary...

ACR Appropriateness Criteria ® Evaluation of the Symptomatic Male Breast
Although the majority of male breast problems are benign with gynecomastia as the most common etiology, men with breast symptoms and their referring providers are typically concerned about whether or not it is due to breast cancer. If the differentiation between benign disease and breast cancer cannot be made on the basis of clinical findings, or if the clinical presentation is suspicious, imaging is indicated. The panel recommends the following approach to breast imaging in symptomatic men. In men with clinical findings consistent with gynecomastia or pseudogynecomastia, no imaging is routinely recommended. (Source: Journ...
