ACTH insensitivity syndromes comprise a rare, and underrecognised, group of disorders, which include familial glucocorticoid deficiency (FGD) and triple A or Allgrove syndrome (ACTH insensitivity, alacrima, achalasia and neurological involvement). They are characterised by undetectable cortisol and very high circulating ACTH with resultant hyperpigmentation and are inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. Distinction between FGD and triple A syndrome may be difficult and is...

A practice review of the use of cinacalcet in primary hyperparathyroidism

Tauni Rahat , Ali Nida , Banerjee Ritwik

Background: The treatment of choice for primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is surgical parathyroidectomy.

British National Formulary (BNF) recommends it for hypercalcaemia in PHPT where parathyroidectomy is inappropriate. The main aim of treatment with cinacalcet is to keep calcium levels at safe levels.<p cla...

Another common association is hyperemesis gravidarum. Vomiting in paraneoplastic hyperthyroidism occurs through a similar mechanism of beta-HCG secretion, mainly related to germ-line tumour...
