AbstractAbstract PDF
Teratoma is a congenital tumor containing tissues derived from all germ layers. Teratoma in the region of the adrenal gland is a very uncommon retroperitoneal tumor. Only 7 cases of adrenal teratoma have been reported worldwide, but in Korea, no similar cases have been reported until now. This case report describes an adrenal teratoma in a 38-year-old healthy woman who was incidentally diagnosed with a left adrenal mass on abdominal ultrasonography during a medical inspection. Computed tomographic scans revealed a 9-cm heterogeneous circumscribed round mass, containing primarily fat tissue, and a solid calcification component in the left adrenal gland. Adrenal hormonal assessment results and biochemical markers for gonadal neoplasia were negative. Result of serum laboratory tests were normal. The patient underwent laparoscopic adrenalectomy. Histologic analysis confirmed the diagnosis of a mature teratoma; the obtained specimen measured 5 x 7 x 7.5 cm and weighed 267 g. The surface of the mass was smooth, and sebaceous tissue and hair with hard material were observed on the incisional surface. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 4, without complications. In this case report, we describe the incidental finding of a teratoma occurring in the adrenal gland region in a healthy woman; the teratoma was laparoscopically excised.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Primary hyperparathyroidism is usually caused by a parathyroid adenoma, occasionally by primary parathyroid hyperplasia and rarely by parathyroid carcinoma. Coincidental occurrence of thyroid carcinoma in parathyroid adenoma is not uncommon, but synchronous parathyroid and thyroid carcinoma is extremely rare. Here, we describe a case of synchronous parathyroid carcinoma and papillary thyroid carcinoma.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Topiramate is a drug used to treat epilepsy, and is known for its effects including reduced appetite resulting in lower body weight, and the lowering of neutral fat. In addition, topiramate is known to reduce blood sugar levels by increasing insulin sensitivity and by increasing insulin secretion by glucose stimulation. The authors report a case of persistent hypoglycemia, in a patient who had been administrating topiramate, as a treatment for epilepsy following an episode of cerebral infarction.
