Raynaud’s phenomenon as a primary symptom of the thyroid carcinoma

Havlinova Barbora , Horacek Jiri , Gabalec Filip , Cap Jan

We present a case of a man with Raynaud’s phenomenon in the area of the lower limb fingers. Clinical signs of Raynaud’s phenomenon with ulceration and gangrene of fingers of both lower limbs appeared several months before the diagnosis of papillary microcarcinoma of the thyroid was made. The diagnosis of carcinoma of the thyroid was det...

Bilateral expansion of adrenal gland with dela...

Neuroendocrine tumours, especially pheochromocytomas, paragangliomas and pituitary adenomas, are more common in younger patients in 3rd–5th decade of life. PitNETs are the most common intracranial tumours, while PHEO and PGL are rare. The hormonal activity, signs and symptoms of NET are variable. PGL, PHEO and PitNET in one patient remains an exceptional association. 72 cases of concomitant pituitary adenoma and PGL have been reported to date. The first record of a patien...

ObjectivePrimary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is a common endocrine disorder affecting 2% of the population aged 55 years or older. Primary hyperparathyroidism is due to parathyroid adenoma in about 85% of cases, parathyroid hyperplasia in about 15% of cases, and parathyroid carcinoma in less than 1% of cases. Familial parathyroid disorders are responsible for 10% of the PHPT cases and include among other disorders caused by parafibromin malfunction. Paraf...
