INTRODUCTION: Urolithiasis in kidney transplants is rare but not exceptional (0,20-3%). Dealing with it is complex: abstention, lithotripsy or surgery?

METHOD: A retrospective study about 420 kidney transplants performed in our institution between 1990 et 2005 revealed nine cases of lithiasis. Among the factors leading to lithiasis were urinary flow obstruction in six cases and hyperparathyroidy in three cases...

Routine calcitonin assay programs and recent studies on the natural history of familial medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) have greatly added to our understanding of C-cell hyperplasia (CCH) and refined its classification. This article is an update on CCH physiopathology related to clinical presentation. With this combined approach, two types of CCH that differ by their physiological characteristics can be identified: neoplastic CCH and reactive (also called physiological) CCH. Neoplastic CCH is caused by a germline mutation of the RET protooncogene in a multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN 2) syndrome...

The authors report the case of dizygotic twins suffering from transitory neonatal hypoparathyroidy and leading to the diagnosis of maternal hyperparathyroidy. The differences of clinical and biological symptomatology between these twins suggest individual variations in response to phosphocalcic disorders of the mother. A review of literature find 31 other cases. This study emphasize the aggravation by the mild hypomagnesemia frequently associated, the usual severity of initial clinical symptomatology in contrast with a good neurologic outcome, the diagnosis of maternal hyperparathyroidy...

We have examined radiologically the bones of seven children attained by renal osteodystrophy. A final score was established by syndrom: hyperparathyroidy, osteomalacia. The results are been confronted to the histomorphometrics studies. Numerous historadiological discordances appears: false radiologic findings 2/7, quantitative discordance of the lesions. Several conventional roentgenologic signs must be revalued after the priliminary histologic findings: cortical index, bone texture: osteomalacia, osteoporosis...
