Authors: Barreto FC, Costa CRVD, Reis LMD, Custódio MR Abstract Renal osteodystrophy (ROD), a group of metabolic bone diseases secondary to chronic kidney disease (CKD), still represents a great challenge to nephrologists. Its management is tailored by the type of bone lesion - of high or low turnover - that cannot be accurately predicted by serum biomarkers of bone remodeling available in daily clinical practice, mainly parathyroid hormone (PTH) and alkaline phosphatase (AP). In view of this limitation, bone biopsy followed by bone quantitative histomorphometry, the gold-standard method for the diagnosis of...

ConclusionsMönckeberg medial calcinosis is an incidental finding on panoramic or CBCT imaging. Clinically and radiographically, its importance for the clinician is its strong association with diabetes and chronic kidney disease. The significance of Mönckeberg sclerosis of the infraorbital arteries is unknown. Radiologists and clinicians should be aware of this entity and the importance of documentation of any findings.

In 1903, the German pathologist Johann M önckeberg described calcifications only affecting the tunica media of medium arteries. The entity was named Mönckeberg arteriosclerosis. Other names in the literature are Mönckeberg sclerosis and Mönckeberg medial calcinosis. The entity is strongly associated with chronic kidney disease and diab etes mellitus. Radiographically, medial calcinosis presents as areas of linear calcifications in soft tissue. The linear calcifications are described as “tram track,” “pipe stem,” “rail track,” or “tram line” when viewed longitudinally.

Authors: Zhang Y, Wang Y, Tao XJ, Li Q, Li FF, Lee KO, Li DM, Ma JH Abstract Purpose: To determine if the TSH is related to estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in T2D patients without overt thyroid dysfunction. Methods: A cohort study of 5936 T2D patients was assessed for thyroid and kidney functions, in whom 248 with subclinical hyperthyroidism and 362 with subclinical hypothyroidism. Serum creatinine and 24-hour urine albumin excretion (UAE) were collected. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) was defined as eGFR
