Their mostly small size (<5 cm), unilateral site, and clinical quiescence is accountable for predominantly incidental disclosure.

Intrathyroidally located parathyroid carcinoma is extremely rare cause of primary hyperparathyroidism. Multifocal papillary and follicular thyroid carcinomas are rather common.We report a case of 40-year old man presenting with substantial weight loss, anemia and multiple osteolytic lesions of both tibias. Peak serum calcium level was 5.0 mmol/l, parathyroid hormone (PTH) level was 989 pg/ml. Left thyroid lobe was firm and enlarged. Routine percutaneous ...

Kruljac Ivan , Maric Andreja , Sulentic Petra , Cigrovski Maja Berkovic , Mahecic Davorka Herman , Mirosevic Gorana , Kastelan Darko , Vrkljan Milan

Studies that consolidate the results of medicamentous and surgical treatment of pituitary adenomas are scarce. Pure endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal surgery is rather new technique.The aim of this study is to report on early postoperative outcome of pure endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal surgery and to present the results of multimodal treatment in patients with postsurgical failure.We reviewed 117 consecutive patients who u...
