Onset in Adolescence


  • Review of growth curves in the pre-ceding years is a crucial step in the workup of CS.[dokument.tips]
  • During workup for metastatic disease, a non-functioning periaortic paraganglioma was found ( Figure 2 ).[nature.com]
  • BMAH can be treated by an appropriate antagonist if aberrant receptors are demonstrated that clearly couple to cortisol release, but the detailed workup of such patients is a research undertaking beyond the scope of these guidelines (57).[docshare.tips]


  • Significant updates on bariatric surgery, Barrett's esophagus, endoscopic ultrasound, endosonography, treatment of liver disease, and much more keep you current on the latest advances.[books.google.com]
  • Management and treatment Treatment modalities are surgery, embolization and radiotherapy. Chemotherapy with imatinib mesylate may be helpful for some patients with advanced-stage GIST.[orpha.net]
  • Treatment of GIST and the paragangliomas: surgical resection, embolization, sometimes radiotherapy. Adjuvant medical treatment by imatinib mesylate is being evaluated. Anesthetic implications: check for anemia; RX thorax to find a paraganglioma.[sites.uclouvain.be]
  • Final diagnosis and treatment: GIST T3N1M1 Stage IV. A 6 months partial response was observed with Imantinib, but it had to be suspended at 8 th month because of morphometabolic worsening.[endocrine-abstracts.org]
