Introduction: Hypercalcitoninemia has frequently been reported as a marker for medullary thyroid carcinoma (MCT). Still, several physiologic and pathologic conditions other than MCT have been associated with increased levels of calcitonin, including neuroendocrine tumors that can ectopically secrete calcitonin.Case report: We present the case of a 78-year old female patient, incidentally diagnosed with multinodular goiter when performing Doppler ultrasou...

Introduction: Cryptorchidism is unilateral or bilateral absence of the testes from the scrotum. One of the differential diagnosis is congenital bilateral anorchia. Vanishing testes syndrome is associated with low serum AMH concentrations and an absent or subnormal response to stimulation with hCG. We report the case of a 22-year-old boy diagnosted with bilateral cryptorchidism and hypergonadotropic hypogonadism at the age of 17 years old. At the time of diagnosis the scrotum w...

Background: The rapid advancements in the field of allogenic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) and better management of acute postprocedural complications have led to increased life expectancy, but at the same time to higher incidences of long-term complications. Conditioning regimens (chemotherapy, total body irradiation), immunosuppresive treatments and immune dysregulation threaten endocrine and metabolic functions, leading to late effects, including hypog...
