Introduction: Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is the most common cause of hypercalcemia, most cases with parathyroid adenoma as the underlying pathology. However, when blood and urine calcium levels and PTH are higher than normal in PHPT, t’s important to suspect an ectopic PTH secretion or a parathyroid carcinoma. Intrathyroidal parathyroid cysts are extremely rare cause of severe PHPT.Clinical case: A 36-year-old male presented with dizziness ...

While this condition of obesity-induced hypogonadism (OIH) is frequently neglected, it has been suggested to contribute to the metabolic complications of male obesity. However, the mechanisms of OIH, and even its actual role in the metabolic alterations of obesity remain ill defined. Our recent data suggest that OIH is bound ...
