Differential diagnosis between Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer and Primitive Lymphoma of the Thyroid gland: A 66-cases study

A rapidly growing neoplastic mass of the neck can either be caused by an anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) or a primitive lymphoma of the thyroid gland (PLT). These two malignancies share the same clinical features but vary widely in their treatment and outcome. Only histologic criteria through biopsy can provide a definitive diagnosis. The aim of this study was to assess biological and radiological differences between ATC and PLT in order to hasten differential diagnosis. Sixty...

Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most common malignancy originating from the thyroid gland. Although occurring predominantly as a sporadic disease, it may be associated with rare inherited circumstances such as familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) FAP is an autosomal dominantly inherited cancer predisposition syndrome characterized by the progressive development of colorectal carcinoma. Most of available data report accompanying thyroid carcinoma in no more than 1&#150...

Serum chromogranin A assay in the biological diagnosis of pheochromocytomas and/or paragangliomas: results in 146 patients

The biological diagnosis of pheochromocytoma (P) and/or paraganglioma (Pgg) relies on the identification of excessive secretion of the metanephrines. Chomogranin A (CgA) is a general indicator of neuroendocrine tumours that is highly expressed in P and correlate with tumour mass and secretory activity. The CgA test could be indicated as a useful test in patients with false positive metanephrines results. The aim of our prospective bi-centre study, is to evaluate the performanc...

Phenotype–genotype correlation in a series of 131 patients studied for calcium-sensing receptor gene

Calcium-sensing receptor gene (CASR) loss-of-function mutations lead to familial hypocalciuric hypercalcaemia (FHH), neonatal severe hyperparathyroidism, and primary hyperparathyroidism. FFH is characterized by mild hypercalcaemia, hypocalciuria, calcium clearance/creatinine clearance (CaCl/CrCl) <0.01, normal or high PTH level. Nevertheless the phenotype may vary (Thakker 2012). The aim of this work was to compare the phenotypes of patients bearing or not a pathogenic <em...

Cigarette smoking increases high calcitonin levels

Increased basal or pentagastrin-stimulated calcitonin level is the cornerstone for the biological diagnosis of medullary thyroid carcinoma, but is also observed in patients with C-cell hyperplasia (CCH) of the thyroid. In a prospective multicenter study we re-evaluated the reference ranges of basal calcitonin (bCT) in 287 euthyroid controls without thyroid disease (142 men-45 smokers, 3 deprived, 145 women-27 smokers). The CT levels were measured using 2 different assays (Cis-...
