Primary Hyperparathyroidism is known to present with protean manifestations leading to misdiagnosis in the initial stages of the disease. Inability to locate the adenoma in an ectopic parathyroid gland may further delay the diagnosis of these cases. Aberrant migration during development may lead to intrathyroidal or other ectopic locations of parathyroid(More)
OBJECTIVE To present 4 cases of distal renal tubular acidosis (RTA) in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) and discuss their possible etiopathogenetic correlation. METHODS We diagnosed distal RTA in 4 patients with symptomatic primary PHPT on the basis of the baseline biochemical variables and the results of the ammonium chloride loading(More)
OBJECTIVE Widely prevalent vitamin D deficiency and delayed diagnosis contributes to severe symptomatic primary hyperparathyroidism in India. We analysed fifty one consecutive patients of primary hyperparathyroidism managed at our centre. All of them were symptomatic. DESIGN Retrospective analysis. MATERIAL AND METHODS Fifty one consecutive cases of(More)
INTRODUCTION Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is largely a symptomatic disease with varied systemic manifestations, complicated by coexisting Vitamin D (Vit D) deficiency. Increasing awareness, developments in diagnostics, and Vit D supplementation may have an impact on the disease profile of PHPT. METHODS Clinical, biochemical, and pathological profile(More)
Primary hyperparathyroidism often presents with protean manifestations, resulting in delayed diagnosis. At times, aberrant development and migration of the gland leads to ectopic location leading to problems in localization. Judicious use of combination methods of localization is recommended in treatment failure or recurrent disease. We report the use of(More)
Primary hyperaldosteronism (Conns' syndrome) commonly presents with a combi-nation of clinical features of hypokalemia and hypertension. Atypical presentations like normo-tension, normokalemia and neurological ailments are described in few cases. We encountered two such cases, the first presenting with acute neurological complaint and second case having(More)
The authors report the rare case of a 25-year-old female who suffered from an ovarian ectopic pregnancy. She presented at 10 weeks gestation with a 1-day history of vaginal bleeding and lower abdominal discomfort. β-human chorionic gonadotropin concentration was 8538 IU/ml. Ultrasound showed a right adnexal mass 4.0 × 3.8 × 5.5 cm with a 16 mm cystic area(More)
