UNLABELLED: Although hypophosphatemia can be a serious threat to health and life, it is a problem rarely taken into consideration in the differential diagnosis in the current clinical practice. The aim of the study was to present the description of hypophosphatemia issues in the context of the threat they may pose to the health and life when undiagnosed. CASE REPORT: 74-year-old internal charged woman , with progressive destruction for a few years, recurrent pneumonia, and a compression fracture of the spine, was admitted to hospital because of fainting and general deterioration...

After a total parathyroidectomy, well-established protocols for the cryopreservation of parathyroid tissue and for the delayed autograft of this tissue exist, especially in cases of secondary hiperparathyroidism (HPT) or familial or sporadic parathyroid hyperplasia. Although delayed autografts are effective, the published success rates vary from 10% to 83%. There are numerous factors that influence the viability, and therefore the success, of an autograft, including cryopreservation time. Certain authors believe that the tissue is only viable for 24 months, but there is no consensus on how long the parathyroid tissue can be preserved...

OBJECTIVES: 1. To assess the sensitivity of scintigraphy using methoxy isobutyl isonitrile (MIBI). 2. To compare its resolution with that of ultrasound (US) and computerized axial tomography (CAT). 3. To use its diagnostic reliability to determine whether selective approaches can be used to treat hyperparathyroidism (HPT). PATIENTS AND METHOD: A study of 76 patients who underwent surgery for HPT between 1996 and 2005 was performed. MIBI scintigraphy and cervical US were used for whole-body scanning in all patients; CAT was used in 47 patients...

BACKGROUND: Parathyroid carcinoma is the least frequent malignancy among endocrine tumors. In the most reported series of patients with primary hyperparathyroidism the incidence of carcinoma is less than 1%. Racognition by a surgeon that the parathyroid tumor is malignant, and the performance of an adequate en bloc removal of primary lesion, with histologic diagnosis offer the best treatment of a patient with this unusual malignancy. CASE REPORT: We reported a 30-year-old patient with parathyroid carcinoma, primary hyperparathyroidism, and recurrent nephrocalcinosis...

Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN 2) is an autosomal dominant cancer syndrome, which is divided into three subtypes: MEN 2A, MEN 2B and familial medullary thyroid cancer (FMTC). Approximately 92% of MEN 2 cases are caused by mutations in exons 10, 11, 13-16 of the RET proto-oncogene. There exists inter- and intra-familial phenotypic variability among the MEN 2 families, even when the disease is caused by the same RET mutation, suggesting a role for genetic modifiers, such as polymorphisms/haplotypes...
