Bestepe Nagihan , cuhaci Neslihan , Polat Burcak , Ogmen Berna , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is a common endocrine disorder that is characterized by hypercalcemia and elevated or normal levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH). Most PHPT cases are incidentally discovered when routine laboratory analysis reveals hypercalcemia. PHPT should be considered in any person with elevated serum calcium (Ca) levels and no clear evidence of malignancy. Serum phosphorus (P) is low due to the phosphaturic effects of PTH and mostly in the ...

Ozdemir Didem , Arpaci Dilek , Ucler Rifki , Cuhaci Neslihan , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Although incidentalomas in endocrine glands such as pituitary, adrenal or thyroid are well defined, parathyroid incidentaloma is a rare concept. In this study, we aimed to determine the prevalence of suspicious parathyroid lesions and true parathyroid incidentalomas in patients referred for thyroid ultrasonography (US) and investigate the possible factors that might cause inadvertent suspicion of a parathyroid adenoma.Methods: Patients susp...
