Spontaneous remission of primary hyperparathyroidism in a patient with neurofibromatosis type 1: case report
Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is an autosomal dominant multisystem disorder affecting approximately 1 in 3500 individuals. Patients with the disorder can develop carcinoid tumors, medullary thyroid carcinoma, pheochromocytoma ...
Circulating forms of parathyroid hormone detected with an immunofluorometric assay in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism and in hyperparathyroidism secondary to chronic renal failure
(Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2001-12-01)
In patients with uremia, intact parathyroid hormone (PTH) measurement appears to overestimate the biologically active hormone in circulation. The recent description of the accumulation in these patients of a non-intact PTH ...
Primary hyperparathyroidism: Changes on biochemical and hormonal profile related to pregnancy
A woman with mild asymptomatic hypercalcemia due to primary hyperparathyroidism became pregnant and her serum calcium normalized while her hypophosphatemia worsered. The PTH was low normal, but her urinary cAMP was elevated. ...
Comparative efficacy of parathyroidectomy and active surveillance in patients with mild primary hyperparathyroidism: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Counseling for patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) and mild hypercalcemia without indications for surgical intervention requires accurate estimates of the potential benefits of parathyroidectomy. We aim to ...
Management Of Ossifying Fibroma In A Suspicious Case Of Hyperparathyroid-jaw Tumor Syndrome
(THIEME MEDICAL PUBL INCNEW YORK, 2015)
Usefulness of a rapid immunometric assay for intraoperative parathyroid hormone measurements
(Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2003-06-01)
Intraoperative parathyroid hormone (IO-PTH) measurements have been proposed to improve operative success rates in primary, secondary and tertiary hyperparathyroidism (PHP, SHP and THP). Thirty-one patients requiring ...
Changes in clinical and laboratory findings at the time of diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism in a University Hospital in São Paulo from 1985 to 2002
(Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2005-09-01)
In contrast to most developed countries, most patients with primary hyperparathyroidism in Brazil are still symptomatic at diagnosis. However, we have been observing a change in this pattern, especially in the last few ...
Analysis of the diagnostic presentation profile, parathyroidectomy indication and bone mineral density follow-up of Brazilian patients with primary hyperparathyroidism
(Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2007-04-01)
Primary hyperparathyroidism is an endocrine disorder with variable clinical expression, frequently presenting as asymptomatic hypercalcemia in Western countries but still predominantly as a symptomatic disease in developing ...
Post-surgical follow-up of primary hyperparathyroidism associated with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1
(Faculdade de Medicina / USP, 2012)
The bone mineral density increments in patients with sporadic primary hyperparathyroidism after parathyroidectomy have been studied by several investigators, but few have investigated this topic in primary hyperparathyroidism ...
