Background: Despite receiving biochemically adequate levothyroxine replacement, many patients with primary hypothyroidism suffer from persistent symptoms and a reduced quality of life (QoL). The underlying causes of this phenomenon are not fully understood, but psychological factors, autoimmune inflammation, and variations in thyroxine conversion have all been suggested as potential contributors. At this time, however, there is no consensus on the root cause.<p class="abst...

Background and aim: Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is a frequent endocrinopathy among postmenopausal women, leading to hypercalcaemia, osteoporosis and nephrolithiasis. PHPT may represent the first manifestation of certain familial syndromes. Among these, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 1 (MEN-1) caused by germline mutation of MEN1, the gene encoding menin, is the most frequent. Additionally, somatic mutations of MEN1 and microRNAs silencing <e...
