Introduction: Paragangliomas are rare endocrine tumors that represent extra-adrenal localization of pheochromocytomas. Signs of catecholamine excess are the most found manifestation of this tumor especialy hypertension. However, paragangliomas can be asymptomatic or can manifest with nonspecific signs. The association between pheochromocytomas and inflammatory diseases is exceptional.Observation: Here we report the case of a 26 years old male that was ad...

Introduction: Graves’ disease is an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid gland and leads to a state of hyperthyroidism. This disease is caused by the production of antibodies that bind to and activate the thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) receptor. In some cases, Grave’ disease may be associated with other organ-specific or systemic autoimmune disorders. One of the most frequent multisystemic autoimmune disorders is Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Many s...
