AbstractAbstract PDF
Osteoporosis in young men is extremely rare. In this report, we demonstrate a rare case of multiple vertebral fractures discovered in a young man with Budd-Chiari syndrome without prior history of trauma. A 29-year-old man was diagnosed as Budd-Chiari syndrome 12 years ago and underwent a mesocaval shunt to relieve the hepatic vein obstruction and was on warfarin therapy. He suffered from low back pain and it was not relieved by analgesics. A T-L spine X-ray revealed multiple compression fractures and the z-score at lumbar spine was -3.7 which is below the expected range for that age. The patient was treated with calcium, vitamin D and bisphosphonate, and showed clinical improvement. This case highlights the importance of the investigation for secondary osteoporosis in young adults with an underlying disease that alters bone metabolism.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Scanning with whole-body 131I scintigraphy after surgery has been a valuable diagnostic modality in the surveillance of patients with differentiated thyroid cancer. Radioiodine uptake is rarely observed in non-lactating breast tissue, which mimics thyroid cancer metastasis. We now report a case of a 45-year-old female thyroid cancer patient who underwent radioiodine therapy, and in whom breast uptake of radioiodine was observed on a post-therapy whole body scan. Her serum prolactin level was elevated to 328 ng/mL at the time of the radioiodine uptake, and the hyperprolactinemia was induced by her antipsychotic medications. Six months after she discontinued that medication, her serum prolactin level was normalized to 12.6 ng/mL and breast uptake of iodine was no longer present in a follow-up whole body scan.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Persistent or recurrent primary hyperparathyroidism after initial parathyroid surgery occurs at rates of 1.5~10%. A single missed parathyroid adenoma accounts for the majority of persistent hyperparathyroidism, whereas metachronous parathyroid adenoma is a rare cause of recurrent hypercalcemia. We report a case of a 39-year-old female who presented with recurrent pancreatitis. She had symptoms of hyperparathyroidism such as hypercalcemia, hypophosphatemia, hypercalciuria, nephrocalcinosis, and osteoporosis. She had a 2-cm firm neck mass under the right submandibular area. She was diagnosed with primary hyperparathyroidism 22 years ago. At that time, the right upper and lower parathyroid glands were removed after exploration of all parathyroid glands, and a right upper parathyroid adenoma was diagnosed. Now, she had a second surgery to remove the right submandibular mass with intraoperative PTH monitoring, which was diagnosed as a parathyroid adenoma in an ectopic supernumerary parathyroid gland. Because of hungry bone syndrome, she received calcium carbonate replacement therapy and has no evidence of recurrence. Here, we report a recurrent parathyroid adenoma in the undescended, supernumerary parathyroid gland after a long interval from the initial surgery.
