Nabila Bahar , Pascale Chasseur , Agnes Burniat

An 22-year-old patient with a history of homozygous sickle cell disease (complicated by multiple vaso-occlusive attacks) was referred to the endocrinologist for persistent hypercalcemia for more than one year (between 2.63 and 2.82 mmol/l, N: 2.15–2.50 mmol/l), associated with hypophosphoremia (0.71 mmol/l, N: 0.75–1.39 mmol/l) and elevation of parathyroid hormone (170 ng/l, N <49 ng/l). Cervical ultrasound did not show parathyroid adenoma, but parathyroid MIBI s...

A rare cause of polycythemia in an octogenarian

Nabila Bahar , Bernard Corvilain , Natacha Driessens

An 82-year-old woman with a history of breast carcinoma and hypertension underwent right laparoscopic adrenalectomy for a large mass (7×5 cm) of high density without contrast (>30 UH), non-secreting. Anatomapathological examination concluded to an adrenocortical adenoma without signs of malignancy: Weiss score of 2 and Ki67 <2%. Two years later, she developed polycythemia (Hb: 17.9 g/dl (N: 11.8–15.5); hematocrit: 53.5% (N: 35.3–46.1)) without involvemen...

We present the case of an octogenarian with a major history of lambda light chain myeloma which was treated by a first-line lenalidomide and dexamethasone from June 2018 to September 2019. Patient had also hypertension and valvular heart disease (mechanical valve and anticoagulation by acenocoumarol). In September 2019, a right adrenal mass was incidentally discovered by a renal ultrasonography made for acute kidney injury. The abdominal CT-scan confirmed the presence of a lar...
