Gonzalez Lazaro Paloma , Contreras Pascual Cristina , Montalban Mendez Cristina , Moreno Tirado Antonio , Zhao Montero Benitez Maria , Jimenez Torrecilla Pedro

Introduction: Central pontine myelinolysis (CPM) is a rare and potentially life-threatening complication of a sudden rise in serum osmolality. Along with extrapontine myelinolysis, it is part of the osmotic demyelination syndrome (ODS). Known risk factors include severe hyponatremia, alcoholism, thiazide use, hypokalemia, and malnourishment.Case report: We report the case of a 31-year-old-male with history of alcohol and cannabis dependence, who had atte...

Introduction: Thyroid nodule is a frequent condition, being diagnosed in up to 70% of subjects who had undergone thyroid ultrasound. Around 90-95% of them became being benign and, if the do not cause compressive symptoms or esthetical problems, they do not need specific therapy, only clinical follow up. Traditionally, thyroidectomy has been the main therapeutic option in these cases. Radiofrequency and ethanol ablations are recently introduced non-invasive therapies that permi...

Introduction: The most common cause of hyponatraemia is the syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (SIADH). The diagnosis typically requires hyponatraemia in the setting of reduced serum osmolality, inappropriately concentrated urine with normal sodium excretion levels, and the absence of interfering medications, hypothyroidism and adrenal insufficiency. Unless hypertonic saline is indicated for acute onset profound hyponatraemia and/or with severe symptoms, the mainst...

Montalban Mendez Cristina , González Lázaro Paloma , Contreras Pascual Cristina , Moreno Tirado Antonio , Silva Fernández Julia , Javier Gómez Alfonso Francisco , Gómez García Inés

Lipoadenoma is an uncommon benign lesión of the parathyroid gland (<1%) and it has most commonly described as non-functional, but also is a very rare cause of primary hyperparathyroidism. Since 1958 scientific literatura had described 54 cases all over the world and only six of that paratyroid lipoadenomas was extended into torax. A case of intrathoracic parathyroid lipoadenoma with hyperparathyroidism is described. A 69–year–old man was refered to our hos...

Selpercatinib as an alternative therapy to Lenvatinib for metastatic medullary thyroid cancer. A case report.

Contreras Pascual Cristina , Montalban Mendez Cristina , Moreno Tirado Antonio , Maria Zhao Montero Benítez , Paloma González Lázaro , Julia Silva-Fernández , Florentino Del Val Zaballos , Francisco Javier Gómez Alfonso , Lomas Meneses Amparo , Inés Gómez García

Selpercatinib is a receptor tyrosine kinase RET inhibitor for the treatment of cancers such as RET-mutant medullary thyroid cancer, demonstrating partial response and low incidence of serious adverse events. Vandetanib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, has shown promising results with an increase in progression-free survival and prolonged lifetime, but it causes adverse events such as hypertension, diarrhea, rash, or long QT interval. Most of them are can be even disabling for the...
