Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: Preeclampsia and eclampsia which can be seen during the last trimester of pregnancy prove to be significant pregnancy complications whose physiopathology still remains unclear. Available data demonstrate that disorders of the thyroid hormone may possibly alter the progress of pregnancy. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between thyroid antibodies and preeclampsia development.
Materials and Methods: This retrospective study is a total of 216 cases were included in the study out of which 72 were pregnant women with preeclampsia who had been followed-up at University of Medical Sciences, Adana City Hospital, Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinic, 72 were healthy pregnant women followed-up at the same clinic, and 72 healthy non-pregnant women but had presented to the internal medicine clinic for various reasons. Statistical analyses of the comparisons of the thyroid tests and thyroid autoantibodies among the all three groups were conducted as well.
Results: 45 of the patients with preeclampsia had mild preeclampsia, while 27 had severe preeclampsia. While no significant difference was found among pregnant women with preeclampsia, healthy pregnant women, and the control groups with regards to the Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) values as revealed by intergroup and intragroup comparisons for multiple groups, the free triiyodotironin(fT3) and free tetraiyodotironin (fT4) values were found to be significantly lower in the preeclampsia and healthy pregnant groups at an advanced level than the control group statistically (p 0.005).
Conclusion: The results of our study revealed that the alterations seen in thyroid hormones might pose a risk for preeclampsia development but autoantibodies were not sufficient enough to bring about preeclampsia development.

Keywords: Hypertension; preeclampsia; pregnancy; thyroid autoantibody
