Aim: Brown tumors are a very rare and serious complication of sustained undiagnosed secondary hyperparathyroidism. Diagnosis and differential diagnosis are made by combining clinical, biochemical, radiological and pathological findings. We present the case of a male with chronic renal disease and multiple bone damage.A 58-year-old male was referred to the endocrine clinic because of lower back and pleural pain. He was an obese smoker with a heavy medical...

Mandanas Stylianos , Margaritidou Efterpi , Georgopoulos Konstantinos , Boudina Maria , Chrisoulidou Alexandra , Pazaitou-Panayiotou Kalliopi

Introduction: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) originated from parafollicular C cells of the thyroid gland is a rare histological type of malignancy. Common sites of metastases are liver, lungs and bones, while metastases in other sites are extremely rare. Breast metastases from MTC are reported in 20 cases, and only in women.Case report: A 67-year-old man was presented after thyroidectomy for further evaluation and treatment. Histology was positive for...

Mathiopoulou Lemonia , Boudina Maria , Chrisoulidou Alexandra , Mandanas Stylianos , Margaritidou Efterpi , Georgopoulos Konstantinos , Pazaitou-Panayiotou Kalliopi

Introduction: Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (sorafenib and sunitinib) have been used in treating refractory cases of thyroid cancer. The aim of our present study was to assess the efficacy of these agents in patients with refractory and progressive thyroid cancer, regarding patients’ quality of life, adverse events and response ratesPatients and methods: We retrospectively analyzed data of adult patients with differentiated and medullary thyroid cancer...

Calcium homeostasis in women with non-metastatic breast cancer with osteoporosis after a single-dose of denosumab: a pilot study

Mandanas Stylianos , Toulis Konstantinos , Mathiopoulou Lemonia , Margaritidou Efterpi , Georgopoulos Konstantinos , Boudina Maria , Chrisoulidou Alexandra , Pazaitou-Panayiotou Kalliopi

Introduction: Women with non-metastatic breast cancer form a distinct subpopulation in which calcium homeostasis in response to treatment with denosumab has not been extensively investigated.Methods: Female patients with osteoporosis, who were eligible for treatment with denosumab, were prospectively enrolled (2011–2012) and divided into two groups; Group A consisting of patients with either no history or benign diseases non affecting bone metabolis...

Boudina Maria , Syndouka Eleni , Fotiadou Aimilia , Stamati Mariana , Zouli Chrysanthi , Argyropoulou Elpiniki , Theodosios S. Papavramidis , Chrisoulidou Alexandra

BackgroundCystic parathyroid adenoma is a rare entity (<0.01% of all cervical masses) that leads to primary hyperparathyroidism in 9% of cases. Parathyroid scintigraphy is essential for the diagnosis although there are pitfalls with false negative results. Parathyroidectomy is the treatment of choice but its success depends on the exact preoperative localization of the parathyroid lesions. 4D-CT is a very helpful diagnostic tool in such cases.<p ...
