ConclusionsGiant parathyroid adenoma is a rare cause of primary hyperparathyroidism and usually presents symptomatically  with high calcium and parathyroid hormone levels. Giant parathyroid adenoma is diagnosed by imaging and laboratory studies. Management is typically surgical, aiming at complete resection. Patients usually recover with no long-term complications or recurrence.

Authors: Thomas CM, Asa SL, Ezzat S, Sawka AM, Goldstein D Abstract Background: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (mtc) is a rare malignancy of the thyroid gland, and raising awareness of the recommended diagnostic workup and pathologic characteristics of this malignancy is therefore important. Methods: We reviewed the current clinical practice guidelines and recent literature on mtc, and here, we summarize the recommendations for its diagnosis and workup. We also provide an overview of the pathology of mtc. Results: A neuroendocrine tumour, mtc arises from parafollicular cells ("C cells"), which secret...

It is in this day and age, an eminently treatable condition which relies heavily on preoperative imaging to localise enlarged parathyroid glands. The imaging appearances of parathyroid gland enlargement are varied; this paper seeks to address some of its more unusual manifestations with an emphasis on its atypical enhancement patterns, mimics and associations. An enlarged gla...

Authors: Zhao T, Xin Y, Shen H, Liu X, Wang J, Wang Q, Wei B Abstract Ectopic parathyroid adenomas (PAs) can occur in numerous locations and are thought to be the cause of a significant portion of failed primary surgery for hyperparathyroidism. PA is a rare cause of hoarseness, which may be harbingers of a malignant process. Here, we describe an unusual case of an ectopic PA in the carotid sheath presenting as unilateral vocal cord paralysis (VCP). A 49-year-old lady presented with a 1-week history of hoarseness, irritating cough and shortness of breath. Fibreoptic laryngoscopy revealed left VCP. Ultrasound and com...

ConclusionIn patients with CRF it’s difficult to diagnose parathyroid carcinoma, because its presentation mimics the most common secondary hyperparathyroidism; the concomitant presence of metastases should lead us to suspect malignant parathyroid lesions.Surgery is the only effective therapy and therefore should be always performed.

Conclusion Patients with PA frequently have primary or secondary hyperparathyroidism, which is alleviated by correction of PA by surgical or medical means. Patients affected by secondary hyperparathyroidism seem to have a more severe phenotype of PA and have a trend towards more cardiovascular co-morbidities.

By HANS DUVEFELT, MD In medicine, contrary to common belief, it is not usually enough to know the diagnosis and its best treatment or procedure. Guidelines, checklists and protocols only go so far when you are treating real people with diverse constitutions for multiple problems under a variety of circumstances. The more you know about unusual presentations of common diseases, the more likely you are to make the correct diagnosis, I think everyone would agree. Also, the more you know about the rare diseases that can look like the common one you think you’re seeing in front if you, rather than having just a memo...
