Introduction: Manifestations of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) such as osteoporosis and stone diseases are common primary diagnostic findings beyond a hypercalcemia. Classical skeletal involvement can be the first sign of PHPT, but not recognized because osteitis fibrosa cystica (bone cysts, brown tumors of the long bones) is rarely seen today in Western Europe.Case report: A 34-year old women from Afghanistan was presented to our out-patient-clinic ...

Introduction: Myelolipomas account for 5–15% of all resected adrenal masses and are considered as benign lesions consisting of fat and myeloid tissue. Their pathogenesis is mostly unknown, though altered mesenchymal stem cell function or a sustained respond to increased ACTH stimulation are discussed. Even though these findings are partly inconclusive, an increased incidence of myelolipoma in patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) has been reported, which may ...
