1. Phylogenetic, ontogenetic, and pathological aspects of the urine-concentrating mechanism.
Match Strength: 10.526
The urine-concentrating mechanism is one of the most fundamental functions of avian and mammalian kidneys. This particular function of the kidneys developed as a system to accumulate NaCl in birds and as a system to accumulate NaCl and urea in mammals. Based on phylogenetic evidence, the mammalian urine-concentrating mechanism may have evolved as a modification of the renal medulla's NaCl accumulating system that is observed in birds. This qualitative conversion of the urine-concentrating mechanism in the mammalian inner medulla of the kidneys may occur during the neonatal period. Human ... Read More »

2. Idiopathic central diabetes insipidus in children and young adults is commonly associated with vasopressin-cell antibodies and markers of autoimmunity.
Match Strength: 7.330
OBJECTIVES: Autoimmune targeting of hypothalamic-neurohypophyseal structures in children and young adults with posterior pituitary and anterior pituitary dysfunction, as well as pituitary stalk involvement, are not yet completely understood. DESIGN: We aimed to (1) evaluate the presence of circulating vasopressin-cell autoantibodies (AVPc-Abs) in young patients with central diabetes insipidus (CDI), (2) detect organ-specific autoantibodies as markers of autoimmunity, and (3) define the relationship between immune markers and neuroimaging findings. PATIENTS: Twenty patients were evaluated at a ... Read More »

3. Endocrine dysfunction in patients operated on for non-pituitary intracranial tumors.
Match Strength: 4.898
OBJECTIVE: Hypopituitarism frequently follows pituitary neurosurgery (NS) and/or irradiation. However, the frequency of hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction after NS of non-pituitary intracranial tumors is unclear. The aim of this study was to assess the presence of endocrine alterations in patients operated on for intracranial tumors. DESIGN: This is a retrospective study. METHODS: We studied 68 consecutive adult patients (28 female, 40 male, age 45.0 +/- 1.8 years; body mass index (BMI): 26.5 +/- 0.6) with intracranial tumors who underwent NS only (n = 17) or in combination with radiotherapy ...
