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.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Graves' disease is an autoimmune disorder in which thyrotropin-stimulating hormone receptor antibodies stimulate the thyroid gland. Stress hormones such as catecholamine are known to play important roles in the pathogenesis of Graves' disease. Pheochromocytoma with Graves' disease is extremely rare, and no case has been reported within the Republic of Korea. However, according to previous studies conducted abroad, pheochromocytoma influences the pathogenesis of Graves' disease by producing excessive cathecholamine. In the present report, we describe a 65-year-old female patient with paroxysmal hypertension and rapidly progressive body weight loss who was diagnosed as having Graves'disease with pheochromocytoma.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Two cases of typical acromegaly with empty sella syndrome presented to our institution. In the natural course of untreated pituitary adenoma, empty sella syndrome may result from necrosis by infarction or from hemorrhage of the pituitary gland. In our patients, the secretion of growth hormone continued in spite of the existence of empty sella syndrome. In one case, we confirmed the hypersecretion of growth hormone from sella by jugular vein sampling. Medical therapy with somatostatin analogue was attempted because there was no obvious mass in the sella. After 6~12 months of treatment with long-acting release octreotide, clinical features in our patients were improved, and the level of growth hormone and IGF-1 were also normalized.
