Background: Severe hyperlipidemia secondary to capecitabine, an oral fluoropyrimidine, is a very rare condition. There are no reported cases of hyperlipidemia associated with Uracil/tegafur (UFT). Objective: Report UFT-induced severe hyperlipidemia. Method: A 71-year-old male patient with metastatic colorectal cancer receiving capecitabine treatment was hospitalized at the end of the eighth cycle with the complaint of fatigue. Capecitabine treatment was discontinued in the patient in whom severe hyperlipidemia was detected together with disease progression. Gemphibrozile 1200 mg/day was initiated; patient’s triglyceride level and serum cholesterol decreased from 1768 to 149 mg/dL and from 497 to 99 mg/dL, respectively, five weeks later. The patient started to receive UFT chemotherapy and after the second cycle, he presented to our hospital again with the complaints of fatigue, headache, and yellow vision. The investigations revealed a serum triglyceride level of 4115 mg/dL and a cholesterol level of 734 mg/dL. Results: UFT chemotherapy was discontinued and lipopheresis was administered for three consecutive days, and gemphibrozile was initiated again at a dose of 1200 mg/day. The clinical presentation might be due to oral fluoropyrimidine. Three weeks later, serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels decreased to 106 and 403 mg/dL, respectively. Conclusion: This case is a unique case of hyperlipidemia secondary to UFT. Monitoring of lipid levels, when using Fluoropyrimidine, as well as hemograms, liver and renal functions would be appropriate.

Acute pancreatitis in pregnancy (APIP) is rare and the reasons for APIP are biliary disease and congenital or acquired hypertriglyceridemia, which could occur during any trimester but more than 50% cases happened during the third trimester. In this report, one case of a young pregnant woman, a HBV carrier in her 37th week + 5 d of gestation, was admitted to Emergency Department due to acute abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea. The patient was in antiretroviral treatment with telbivudine from 28 weeks of gestation to prevent motherto- child transmission of HBV. Laboratory tests demonstrated hypertriglyceridemia, abdominal computed tomography scan revealed peripancreatic edema. Hyperlipidemic pancreatitits was primary diagnosed and the patient was admitted to the intensive care unit. Considering the possible role in the pathogenesis of pancreatitis, telbivudine was interrupted after birth giving. After supportive treatment, her condition gradually improved. Since it is the first description of APIP during treatment with telbivudine, the association between pregnancy, hyperlipidemia, telbivudine and acute pancreatitis has been well investigated.

Background and aims: Diabetes mellitus is the disease-challenge of our century, characterized by an increase in serum glycemia, which may lead to the occurrence of micro- and macro-vascular complications with serious consequences on both patient and public health. The Framingham risk score was obtained from a complex study and it estimates the individual risk of each patient to develop a cardiovascular event over the next 10 years depending on certain parameters (age, smoking, total cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, systolic blood pressure). Our study main aim was to evaluate the cross-associations between the components of the metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular risk, diabetes-related biological parameters and chronic kidney disease in patients hospitalized due to poor metabolic control.
Material and methods: In this cross-sectional study, we enrolled 218 patients with type 2 diabetes, admitted in the Diabetes Clinic of the “Pius Brinzeu” Emergency Hospital Timisoara according to a consecutive-case population-based principle.
Results: We observed that the quality of the glycemic control is impaired in patients with higher age; the body mass index was positively correlated with HbA1c and hypertension accompanies diabetes in more than half of the cases. Moreover, we observed that high levels of LDL cholesterol are significantly correlated with high levels of HbA1c.
Conclusions: There was poor metabolic control in patients with associated complications such as hyperlipidemia, cardiovascular disease or chronic kidney diseases. Also, in most of the cases hypertension was associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
