1 Review Rheumatic manifestations of endocrine disease. 2013

Chakravarty, Soumya D / Markenson, Joseph A. ·Hospital for Special Surgery, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, NY 10021, USA. ·Curr Opin Rheumatol · Pubmed #23159916.

ABSTRACT: PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Musculoskeletal complaints are a feature of several endocrine diseases. This review will update clinicians on their association, presentation, and treatment. RECENT FINDINGS: To update clinicians on the recent literature as it is related to pathophysiology, genetic, and clinical findings on the association of these diseases and musculoskeletal complaints. SUMMARY: Rheumatologists in the clinic are faced with different presentations of various musculoskeletal complaints every day. Every new patient encounter requires the differential diagnosis of these complaints. The first task is usually to decide with what disease in internal medicine these complaints are associated. The endocrinopathies are a group of illnesses that either present initially or exhibit sometime during the course of the disease as a variety of musculoskeletal complaints. Rheumatic manifestations may often be the initial presentation of an endocrine disorder. Each endocrine disorder may also have its own arthritic complaints, which can present as a definitive rheumatic disease such as calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate deposition disease or as a rheumatic symptom such as diffuse arthralgia. The rheumatologist as well as the primary care physician should be knowledgeable about the ways in which muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints are affected by diseases of the endocrine system.

2 Article Mineralocorticoid before glucocorticoid deficiency in a dog with primary hypoadrenocorticism and hypothyroidism. 2013

McGonigle, Kathryn M / Randolph, John F / Center, Sharon A / Goldstein, Richard E. ·Department of Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA. katie_mcgonigle@hotmail.com ·J Am Anim Hosp Assoc · Pubmed #23033468.

ABSTRACT: A dog with an unexpected presentation of primary hypoadrenocorticism was evaluated for clinical signs and electrolyte abnormalities characteristic of Addison's disease. Although the initial adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) stimulation test documented serum cortisol concentrations within the reference range, subsequent assessments confirmed hypoaldosteronism. Mineralocorticoid replacement promptly normalized electrolytes and transiently improved clinical illness. Six weeks after initial ACTH stimulation testing, the dog became glucocorticoid deficient. Concurrent primary hypothyroidism was also documented. Hypoaldosteronism preceding hypocortisolemia is a unique presentation of canine Addison's disease.
