AbstractAbstract PDF
Thanks to advances in assay techniques and routine measurements in serum chemical analysis, primary hyperparathyroidism has become far more frequently detected, and the number of asymptomatic patients has substantially increased. In the majority of patients (85%), a solitary adenoma is the underlying cause of primary hyperparathyroidism. Surgical excision is the treatment of choice for most cases of primary hyperparathyroidism; this procedure has a relatively high success rate. In the past decade, improvements in preoperative imaging have played a major role in a targeted operative approach, which allows for minimally invasive surgery to be performed. The success of parathyroid surgery depends on the accurate preoperative localization of parathyroid adenoma. In this study, we report the case of a 54 year-old woman with primary hyperparathyroidism who presented with left buttock and leg pain. For localization of the parathyroid lesion, an ultrasonography and a 99mTc-sestamibi scan were initially performed, but these attempts failed to localize the lesion. We then carried out contrast-enhanced CT; thereafter, a single parathyroid adenoma was detected. Therefore, in patients with negative results on both ultrasonography and 99mTc-sestamibi scan, contrast-enhanced CT may prove helpful for preoperative parathyroid localization.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Thyrotropin (TSH)-secreting pituitary adenoma is a very rare disease. In one-quarter of patients suffering from this disease, the pituitary tumor secretes other anterior pituitary hormones. Herein, we report a case of pituitary adenoma with simultaneous secretion of TSH and growth hormone (GH). A 34-year-old female visitied local hospital complaining of sweating, intermittent palpitation, and weight loss of 8 kg within 1 year. The patient had undergone trans-sphenoidal surgery 3 years prior for resolution of a TSH and GH co-secreting pituitary adenoma. She had been administered somatostatin analogue prior to visiting our hospital. The patient's GH levels were suppressed to below 1 ng/mL on the 75 g oral glucose tolerance test, and her basal insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) level was within normal range. Thyroid function tests demonstrated increased levels of both free thyroxine and TSH. Sella-MRI revealed pituitary adenoma at the floor of the pituitary fossa, approximately 2 cm in height. Therefore, she was diagnosed with residual TSH-secreting pituitary adenoma. The patient again underwent trans-sphenoidal surgery and entered complete remission, based on hormone levels and MRI findings.
