DOC secreting adrenal adenoma, a rare cause of hypertension

Paja Miguel , Dublang Maddalen , Zabalegui Alba , Arrizabalaga Cristina , Exposito Amaia , Espiga Javier

Secondary endocrine hypertension affects around 10% of all hypertensive population, most frequently primary aldosteronism (PA). Less frequent forms of adrenal hypertension include pheochromocytomas and other causes of mineralocorticoid excess than PA, featuring suppressed renin without excess of aldosterone. Featuring. We present a 29-year-old woman with difficult to control hypertension diagnosed two years before and poor response to ACEI and ARA II treatment. She was referre...

Bilateral cervical exploration has been the gold standard in parathyroid surgery. Nowadays, the preoperative localization procedures have facilitated the minimally invasive surgery. This study aims to analyze the influence of thyroid disease in Tc99m-sestamibi scintigraphy (MIBI) results.A series of 154 patients with PHP who underwent parathyroidectomy was reviewed. Patients were divided into two groups: group 1 (G1, 58 patients) with thyroid diseases, a...

Simultaneous papillary (PTC) and medullary (MTC) thyroid cancer: more than a coincidence? Report of two cases

Oleaga Amelia , Paja Miguel , Nerea Egana , Estibaliz Ugarte , Javier Espiga , Ramon Elorza Jose

The simultaneous occurrence of MTC and PTC in the same thyroid can be observed as a mixed tumour folliculo-medullar (OMS 1988) or as a collision tumour separated by normal thyroid parenchyma, which has only been described in less than thirty patients. We report two cases.Case 1: A 72 years old woman who underwent total thyroidectomy for a multinodular goiter. Histology showed a 2.5 cm CPT in the left lobe and a 4.5 cm CMT in the right lobe. She received ...

Introduction: Hypoparathyroidism (hypoPT) is the most frequent complication after thyroid surgery, usually as transient hypocalcaemia. Permanent parathyroid lesion is less frequent, but it can extend hospital stay and complicate postoperative management. Several preoperative factors predicting the development of hypoPT have been identified, including advanced age, hyperthyroidism, surgical experience and others. We evaluate the role of some potentially predictive factors in ou...

Impact of thyroid autoimmunity on obstetric and perinatal outcomes in pregnant women with subclinical hypothyroidism

Oleaga Amelia , Jimenez-Telleria Patricia , Goni Fernando , Moreno Cristina , Arrizabalaga Cristina , Izuzquiza Ana , Espiga Javier , Martinez Adela , Zabalegui Alba , Paja Miguel

Introduction: Maternal clinical thyroid disorders can cause reproductive complications. However, the effects of mild thyroid dysfunction are controversial. The impact of SH and thyroid autoimmunity on miscarriages, obstetric and perinatal outcomes are not yet well established and the effect of levothyroxine replacement in pregnant women with SH is unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of thyroid autoimmunity in early pregnancy on obstetric and perinatal out...

Radiofrequency ablation in the treatment of benign thyroid nodules: a good alternative to surgery

Moreno Cristina , Paja Miguel , Izuzquiza Ana , Espiga Javier , Arrizabalaga Cristina , Martinez Adela Leyre , Monzon Andoni , Zabala Rosa , Iglesias Natalia , Calles Laura

Introduction: To date, benign thyroid nodules complainig of symptomatic or cosmetic problems and autonomous functioning thyroid nodules (AFTN) have generally been treated with surgery or I131. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a novel technique that has demonstrated safety and efficacy in the treatment of these nodules. We describe the clinical experience at our hospital.Material and method: We include 33 patients (28 women, 5 men) from January 2013 to Se...
