Recurrent hyperparathyroidism: parathyroid carcinoma or parathyromatosis?

Alina Isaic , Flore Varcus , Maria Cornianu , Ioana Golu , Mihaela Vlad

Recurrent hyperparathyroidism (HPT) refers to reappearance of hypercalcemia after a normocalcemic period of at least 6 months post-parathyroidectomy. Parathyroid carcinoma is a rare cause of primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT), accounting for 0.4–5.2% of cases. Parathyromatosis is defined as small nodules of hyperfunctioning parathyroid tissue scattered in the soft tissues of the neck and/or mediastinum. We describe two cases with recurrent hypercalcemia after surgical int...

Introduction: Differentiated thyroid cancer is one of the most common endocrine malignancies. The most common thyroid cancer in adolescence is PTC. It presents with a high rate of loco regional ganglionic metastasis. Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) is a heterogeneous group of neoplasms with an incidence, in Europe, estimated around 2.2–2.7 per 100 000 cases per year. In front of each adolescent case, with concomitant thyroid and lymph nodes, the main question that arises is the pre...

Balas Melania , Varcus Flore , Daniela-Georgiana Amzar , Golu Ioana , Plotuna Iulia , Borlea Andreea , Silvia Corlan Ana , Vlad Mihaela

IntroductionThe use of antithyroid drugs is associated rarely with severe hepatotoxicity. Recently, due to several cases reported in the literature, acute pancreatitis was added as a severe potential adverse effect induced by methimazole. The physiopathology of methimazole induced pancreatitis is not fully understood (intrinsic toxicity or idiosyncratic drug reaction were proposed as possible mechanisms). If adverse effects occur and no other treatment o...
