Novizio Roberto , Emanuele Rizzo Gaetano , Paragliola Rosa Maria , Maggio Ettore , Locantore Pietro , Maria Corsello Salvatore

Background: SARS-CoV-2 infection is characterized by aspecific symptoms (e.g., fever, cough) and can be complicated by viral pneumonia and many other manifestations can occur. Endocrinological complications have also been described. Pheochromocytomas are rare tumors located in the adrenal medulla, causing symptoms due to catecholamines overproduction and abrupt release. Catecholamines release can be continuous or intermittent and there can be several triggers including stress,...

Teriparatide for hypoparathyroidism after bariatric surgery

Maggio Ettore , Morgante Cesare , Ramunno Vittoria , Corsello Andrea , Cera Gianluca , Pontecorvi Alfredo , Corsello Salvatore Maria

Background: Hypoparathyroidism is an endocrine disorder characterized by hypocalcemia due to low levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH). Activated vitamin D (calcitriol) and calcium supplementation may be difficult in patients with malabsorption, as calcium requires an acid environment to dissolve. In this setting, subcutaneous administration of PTH analogues may be effective in reducing the dosage of oral calcium and vitamin D supplementation.Case report: ...

Adrenal and pituitary glands involvement by extranodal diffuse large B-cell lymphoma: a case presentation

Ramunno Vittoria , Visconti Felicia , Emanuele Rizzo Gaetano , Corsello Andrea , Maggio Ettore , Menotti Sara , Locantore Pietro

Background: Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma is the most common non-HodgkinÂ’s lymphoma (NHL). It can involve extranodal sites in about 30%, but the involvement of endocrine organs is rare (adrenal involvement is estimated<0.2%) and correlates with poor prognosis. In contrast to pituitary metastases from solid tumors, NHL involvement of the anterior lobe of the pituitary is more frequently seen.Case presentation: A 84-year-old woman presented to the...

Management of a rare life-threatening parathyroid carcinoma

Zelano Lorenzo , Maggio Ettore , Veleno Miriam , Mura Chiara , Morgante Cesare , Antonio Rota Carlo , Pontecorvi Alfredo

Background: Parathyroid carcinoma (PC) is rare, usually presenting with hyperparathyroidism and severe hypercalcemia. A standardized diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic approach has not been provided yet and TNM staging algorithm is not universally accepted. Surgery is the first-choice treatment and is the only effective therapy to control hypercalcaemia. Chemo- or radio-therapy, local treatments or novel drugs should be reserved to selected cases.Cas...

Hypoparathyroidism after total thyroidectomy in a woman who underwent to bariatric surgery: A case report

Maggio Ettore , Veleno Miriam , Rossi Laura , Novizio Roberto , Emanuele Rizzo Gaetano , Morgante Cesare , Locantore Pietro

Background: Hypoparathyroidism (HypoPT) is characterized by low calcium and parathyroid hormone (PTH), often secondary to thyroid surgery. Treatment consists in activated vitamin D and calcium supplementation. Such treatment may be difficult in patients with malabsorption as calcium usually requires an acid environmental to dissolve, while calcitriol needs an intact intestine for a full absorption.Case report: A 36-year old woman had a history of sleeve ...

A rare case of gonadotroph adenoma in a young woman

Veleno Miriam , Maggio Ettore , Morgante Cesare , Novizio Roberto , Laura Leo Maria , Policola Caterina , Locantore Pietro , Pontecorvi Alfredo

Background: Functioning gonadotroph adenomas (GA) account for 20 to 25% of all pituitary adenomas. Clinical presentation consists in multiple ovarian follicles and cysts, higher estradiol level and endometrial hyperplasia. The treatment of choice is transphenoidal tumor resection.Case Presentation: A 40 year old woman presented with abdominal pain and menstrual cycle dysfunctions. Hormonal evaluation showed: FSH:13.8 mU/ml, estradiol:1549 pg/ml, PRL:81.7...
