Marine-Lenhart syndrome is defined as Graves' disease accompanied with a functioning thyroid nodule(s). In this rare syndrome, two of the clinic tables may coexist or functioning nodules may be added to Graves’ disease in subsequent years. This syndrome is generally seen in females and thyroid nodules shows generally benign characteristics in biopsy results. In this paper, we present a 28 year-old man who admitted to our clinic with the complaint of exophthalmos and weight loss and diagnosed as Marine-Lenhart syndrome based on a toxic thyroid adenoma detected with imaging studies and, clinical and laboratory findings consistent with Graves' disease.

 

Graves hastalığı ve fonksiyonel nodül veya nodüllerin birlikteliği Marine-Lenhart sendromu olarak adlandırılır. Oldukça nadir görülen bu sendromda bahsedilen iki ayrı durum aynı zamanda olabileceği gibi toksik adenom yıllar içerisinde tabloya eklenebilir. Hastalar genelde bayandır ve yapılan biyopsi sonuçlarına göre nodüller büyük çoğunlukla benign karakterdedir. Bu yazıda, egzoftalmus ve kilo kaybı şikayetleri nedeni ile Graves Hastalığı düşünülen ve yapılan tetkikler sonucunda aynı zamanda toksik adenom saptanan 28 yaşında bir erkek hasta sunulmuştur.
