Ectopic parathyroid glands occur in 6-16% of cases of PHPT and they constitute a potential cause of failed primary surgical therapy. In particular, aberrant adenomas located deeper in the mediastinum, as in the presented case, remain a severe challenge for the surgeons.

Ectopic parathyroids can often present a diagnostic and therapeutic conundrum for clinicians. Mediastinal parathyroid adenomas are usually small and located anteriorly within thymic tissue. To our kno...
A 56-year-old woman with secondary hyperparathyroidism was referred for preoperative localization of hyperfunctioning parathyroid lesions. Tc-MIBI dual-phase and SPECT/CT parathyroid scan showed multi...
Ectopic parathyroid glands can be located at any anatomical location from the base of the tongue to the mediastinum. One-third of these glands migrate deep into the mediastinum, which are not accessib...
The investigators report a case of a 39-year-old man who presented an anterior mediastinal cystic mature teratoma. Those kind of tumor contain elements derived from more than one of the th...
Identification and localization of pathological parathyroid gland before parathyroidectomy is traditionally done by a combination of two methods: ultrasound and sestamibi scan. The investi...
This study investigates if Parathyroid Tissues Anatomic Localizations Are Displaced Downward in Parathyroid Hyperplasia Cases or not.
This prospective study aims to 1. compare the detection rates among sonography, MIBI scan and 18F-FCH PET for localization of the parathyroid lesions including adenoma, hyperplasia or car...
To develop a tissue bank library for patients with parathyroid disease who have undergone surgery and/or biopsy, and/or who may undergo surgical intervention at M. D. Anderson Cancer Cente...
Presence of air in the mediastinal tissues due to leakage of air from the tracheobronchial tree, usually as a result of trauma.
Pathological processes of the PARATHYROID GLANDS. They usually manifest as hypersecretion or hyposecretion of PARATHYROID HORMONE that regulates the balance of CALCIUM; PHOSPHORUS; and MAGNESIUM in the body.
A benign tumor, usually found in the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland, whose cells stain with acid dyes. Such pituitary tumors may give rise to excessive secretion of growth hormone, resulting in gigantism or acromegaly. A specific type of acidophil adenoma may give rise to nonpuerperal galactorrhea.

A parathyroid hormone receptor subtype that recognizes both PARATHYROID HORMONE and PARATHYROID HORMONE-RELATED PROTEIN. It is a G-protein-coupled receptor that is expressed at high levels in BONE and in KIDNEY.
A cystic form of sweat gland adenoma (ADENOMA, SWEAT GLAND). It is produced by the cystic proliferation of apocrine secretory glands. It is not uncommon, occurring in adult life in no particular age group, with males and females equally affected. The commonest site is around the eye, particularly lateral to the outer canthus. It is cured by surgical removal. (Stedman, 25th ed; Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 4th ed, p2410)
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
