    Fédération d'Endocrinologie, Hospices Civils de Lyon, Groupement Hospitalier Est, 59 Boulevard Pinel, 69677 Bron, France; Université Lyon 1, 43 Boulevard du 11 novembre 1918, 69100 Villeurbanne, France.
    Diabetes insipidus is a syndrome that associates both hypotonic polyuria and polydipsia, due to insufficient or ineffective arginine vasopressin (AVP) synthesis, or to AVP resistance. The diagnosis between central/renal origin, or an abnormal thirst regulation (primary polydipsia) is required to organize an adapted management. Because water deprivation tests are not reliable, it's often based on medical history, response to treatment and MRI. Read More

    Long-standing isolated autoimmune hypothalamitis diagnosed with endoscopic transventricular biopsy: a case report.
    World Neurosurg 2017 Jun 15. Epub 2017 Jun 15.
    Unit of Neurosurgery, Fondazione IRCCS Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico - Via Francesco Sforza 35, 20122 Milan, Italy.
    Background: Autoimmune hypothalamitis, which is among the causes of acquired central diabetes insipidus, has been described very rarely in the literature. This condition is probably provoked by the production of anti-vasopressin secreting cells antibodies and anti-hypothalamus antibodies, and is often associated with pituitary or polyendocrine autoimmunity. Correct diagnosis and immediate treatment are essential in order to avoid the progression of the pathological process. Read More

    Association between Ischemic Stroke and Erdheim-Chester Disease: A Case Report and Review of Literature.
    J Stroke Cerebrovasc Dis 2017 Jun 13. Epub 2017 Jun 13.

    Diabetes insipidus and hypopituitarism in HIV: an unexpected cause.
    Endocrinol Diabetes Metab Case Rep 2017 29;2017. Epub 2017 May 29.
    Endocrinology Department, Hospital de Egas Moniz, LisboaPortugal.
    Central diabetes insipidus (DI) is a rare clinical entity characterized by low circulating levels of antidiuretic hormone (ADH) presenting with polyuria and volume depletion. Pituitary surgery is the most common cause of central DI in adults. Pituitary and hypothalamic disease, particularly invasive neoplasms, rarely cause DI, being idiopathic cases responsible for the majority of non-surgical cases. Read More

    Lithium-induced NDI: Acetazolamide reduces polyuria, but does not improve urine concentrating ability.
    Am J Physiol Renal Physiol 2017 Jun 14:ajprenal.00147.2017. Epub 2017 Jun 14.
    Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre
    Lithium is the mainstay treatment for patients with bipolar disorder, but generally causes nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (NDI), a disorder in which the renal urine concentrating ability has become vasopressin-insensitive. Li-NDI is caused by lithium uptake by collecting duct principal cells and downregulation of AQP2 water channels, which are essential for water uptake from pro-urine. Recently, we found that the prophylactic administration of acetazolamide to mice effectively attenuated Li-NDI. Read More

    Hypopituitarism is associated with lower oxytocin concentrations and reduced empathic ability.
    Endocrine 2017 Jul 8;57(1):166-174. Epub 2017 Jun 8.
    Neuroscience and Mental Health Research Institute, School of Medicine, Cardiff University, Cardiff, CF24 4HQ, UK.
    Purpose: Central diabetes insipidus is characterised by arginine vasopressin deficiency. Oxytocin is structurally related to vasopressin and is synthesised in the same hypothalamic nuclei, thus we hypothesised that patients with acquired central diabetes insipidus and anterior hypopituitarism would display an oxytocin deficiency. Moreover, psychological research has demonstrated that oxytocin influences social and emotional behaviours, particularly empathic behaviour. Read More

    Opioid-induced hyponatremia in a patient with central diabetes insipidus: independence from ADH.
    J Pediatr Endocrinol Metab 2017 May;30(6):693-696
    .
    Hyponatremia can be a complication of opioid therapy, which has been postulated to occur secondary to inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion [SIADH]). We report severe hyponatremia following wisdom teeth extraction with opioid analgesia in a 19-year-old female with diabetes insipidus (DI) and acquired panhypopituitarism that challenges this theory. As this patient has DI, we believe opioid treatment caused severe hyponatremia by the following mechanisms: (1) Opioids have a direct antidiuretic effect independent of changes in ADH, as demonstrated in Brattleboro rats with central DI.

    A reformed surgical treatment modality for children with giant cystic craniopharyngioma.
    Childs Nerv Syst 2017 Jun 7. Epub 2017 Jun 7.
    Department of Pediatric Neurosurgery, Beijing Tiantan Hospital, Capital Medical University, Beijing, 100050, China.
    Objective: Surgical removal plays an important role in treating children's craniopharyngioma. For a safe and minimally invasive craniotomy, a reformed surgical modality was proposed in this paper by combining the insertion of an Ommaya reservoir system (ORS) by stereotactic puncture, aspiration of cystic fluid in 2-day interval for consecutive 7-10 days, and the delayed tumor resection.

    Patients And Methods: Eleven patients (aged from 5 to 9 years old) with giant cystic craniopharyngiomas who had undergone the reformed surgical modality during November 2014 and December 2015 were collected as group A. Read More

    Hypothalamic hamartoma with epilepsy: Review of endocrine comorbidity.
    Epilepsia 2017 Jun;58 Suppl 2:50-59
    Pediatric Neurology Division and Hypothalamic Hamartoma Program, Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children's Hospital, Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.A.
    The most common, and usually the only, endocrine disturbance in patients with hypothalamic hamartoma (HH) and epilepsy is central precocious puberty (CPP). The mechanism for CPP associated with HH may relate to ectopic generation and pulsatile release of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) from the HH, but this remains an unproven hypothesis. Possible regulators of GnRH release that are intrinsic to HH tissue include the following: (1) glial factors (such as transforming growth factor α[TGFα) and (2) γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-mediated excitation.

    Regulation of renal Na-(K)-Cl cotransporters by vasopressin.
    Pflugers Arch 2017 Jun 2. Epub 2017 Jun 2.
    Department of Anatomy, Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Berlin, Germany.
    Vasopressin (AVP) induces antidiuresis, thus playing an essential role in body water and electrolyte homeostasis. Its antidiuretic effects are mediated chiefly by V2 vasopressin receptors (V2R) expressed along the distal nephron and collecting duct epithelia. NaCl reabsorption in the distal nephron, which includes the thick ascending limb (TAL) and distal convoluted tubule (DCT), largely depends on the activity of two structurally related Na-(K)-Cl cotransporters, NKCC2 in TAL and NCC in DCT.
