Phaeochromocytoma in pregnancy

Araujo Alexandra , Silvestre Catarina , Marcalo Jose , Gomes Ana Raquel , Carvalho Raquel

Phaeochromocytoma in pregnancy is an extremely rare condition. Early recognition can largely decrease maternal and fetal mortality rates. As symptoms of phaeochromocytoma are similar to those of other more common causes of hypertension during pregnancy, timely diagnosis is a challenge. There is no consensus in literature about the specific treatment nor about the optimal delivery timing or route. Case of a 32 years old woman with a single pregnancy of 30 weeks and 3 days admit...

Martins Ana Filipa , Martins Joao Martin , Vale Sonia do , Gomes Ana Raquel

Introduction: Von Hippel–Lindau disease (VHLD) is an autosomal dominant neoplastic syndrome characterized by the development of multiple cancers and cists, including pheochromocytoma and islet cell tumors. Screening is mandatory for family members of index cases.Case report: A 23-year-old male Caucasian was referred to Endocrine Department because of the recent genetic diagnosis of VHLD during familiar screening. The mutation c.482G>A(p.Arg161GI...

Trabecular bone score (TBS) is a recent noninvasive analytical method, based upon DXA images, related to bone microarchitecture or bone quality; together, TBS and DXA may evidence bone strength. Falls and osteoporotic fractures increase with ageing, while both BMD and vitamin D levels slowly decline. Data about the influence of vitamin D on the TBS are scarce.Aim: To evaluate the influence of the blood vitamin D levels on the TBS in normal men.<p cla...

Effects of male hypogonadism treatment on the bone mineral density

Mascarenhas Mario Rui , Barbosa Ana Paula , Gomes Ana Raquel Coelho , Silvestre Catarina , Barbosa David , Paixao Raquel , Faria Carolina , Osorio Ana Sofia , Gomes Vania , Ferreira Joana , Bicho Manuel , Bugalho Maria Joao

Increased recognition of the morbidity and mortality due to osteoporosis in men are main issues of public health. Ageing and the propensity to falls are the main risk factors for osteoporotic fractures in men; moreover, hypogonadism is an important secondary cause of low bone mineral density (BMD), but very little is known about the effect of hypogonadism treatment on the BMD.Objective: The aim was to study the impact on BMD of the treatment of male hypo...
