Introduction: Subclinical hypercortisolism (SH), a condition of biochemical cortisol excess without the classical signs or symptoms of overt hypercortisolism, is thought to be present in the 5–30% of patients with incidentally discovered adrenal mass (adrenal incidentalomas).

Background: PHPT is the leading cause of hypercalcemia in outpatients. Its clinical presentation varies from asymptomatic forms to renal or bone complications. The only curative treatment is surgical resection, and delayed diagnosis can lead to serious morbidity.Objective: Identify the presence of PHPT at least one year prior to referral to endocrinology consultation. Secondly, determine whether diagnostic delay leads to increased complications.<p cl...

sTg is universally accepted as the best marker of disease status in DTC. Its presurgical serum level may suggest the presence of distant metastasis in case of very high level, but the correlation between its level and the characteristics of the tumour is yet to be defined.Objective: To evaluate preoperative thyroglobulin as predictor of DCT features.Methods: Preoperative sTg was measured in patients operated for DTC between 2011&#1...
