Contribution of multimodality imaging for positive and aetiological diagnosis of multiple brown tumours

, : Contribution of multimodality imaging for positive and aetiological diagnosis of multiple brown tumours. Annales D'endocrinologie 73(1): 43-50

This report concerns a rare case of multiple brown tumours discovered in a setting of primary hyperparathyroidism in a 64-year-old patient presenting with weight loss and leg pain. Biological, radiological and pathological findings led to the diagnosis of brown tumours. The contribution of anatomic and nuclear imaging techniques to the diagnosis of brown tumours and their aetiological assessment as well as pre-surgery localisation of parathyroid adenomas in the context of primary hyperparathyroidism is discussed.

Axin is encoded by the fused locus in mice and is required for normal vertebrate axis formation. It has recently been shown that axin associates with the adenomatous polyposis coli gene product (APC), beta-catenin and glycogen synthase kinase-3 (G...

In the three genera of Macroramphosidae, Macroramphosus, Notopogon and Centriscops, the scutes are small (0.1 to 1.5 mm) and composed of a flat basal plate from the middle of which a shaft arises. In Macroramphosus this shaft is covered by a ridge...
