Introduction: Pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma are the cause of secondary hypertension, glucose intolerance, arteriosclerosis and associated with increase of mortality. In addition, 10–17% of them are reported to be malignant. Therefore, diagnosis at the early stage is important.Methods: We retrospectively analyzed the medical records of Japanese patients who were admitted to our hospital from January 2001 to December 2015. They were confirmed phe...

Introduction: For minimally invasive surgery of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT), the identification of the accurate localization is required. As preoperative diagnostic imagings, we perform ultrasound, technetium 99m-sestamibi scintigraphy and either or both of megnetic resonance imaging or computed tomography in all cases. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the clinical biochemical factors that fascilitate preoperative diagnostic imagings for localization.<p c...
