Primary hyperparathyroidism in the most common cause of hypercalcemia. 87% of the cases present with single adenoma, 9% of them have hyperplasia, while multiple adenomas and parathyroid malignancy are detected in 3 and 1% of the cases, respectively. Although it is rare, parathyroid adenomas may be ectopic.

Acromegaly affects 4–6 people in a million and hypophyseal GH releasing adenoma is the most common cause of the disease. It shows its effects on GH and IGF1. Since they grow rapidly, they are usually diagnosed at the stage of macroadenomas. Heart failure, arthritis, OSAS and DM may develop during course of the disease. Although the most common accompanying malignancy is colon cancer, the incidence of malign melanoma, breast, thyroid, gastric and lung cancers is also incre...
