Endocrinal and metabolic disorders

  1. 1. By Dr. Tarek Mansour Faculty of medicine Al-Azhar university
  2. 2. The amount of bone at any part of skeleton at ant time depend up on the balance between bone resorption and formation.
  3. 3. The three hormonal regulators include 1. Parathormone (PTH), produced by the four parathyroid glands on the back side of the thyroid gland. 2. The active form of vitamin D produced in the proximal renal tubule 1,25(OH)2. 3. And calcitonin produced by the parafollicular cells in the thyroid gland.
  4. 4. PTH The major function of PTH is to prevent the dangerous reduction in the serum calcium level by: 1. Increasing the production of 1,25,(OH)2 vitamin D in the kidney which then increases the absorption of calcium from the gut and renal tubule. 2. PTH also activates osteoclastic mobilization of calcium from bone mineral. 3. PTH is to promote urinary excretion of phosphorous. 
  5. 5.  The major function of 1,25,(OH)2 vitamin D is to activate the absorption of calcium from the gut and bone.  The least important calcium regulator is calcitonin which is designed to prevent an increase of serum calcium by inhibiting the osteoclastic mobilization of calcium at the bone level.
  6. 6. Hormonal regulation of calcium and phosphate    The crude inactive form of vitamin D comes from the gut and the skin that is exposed to sun light which is then transported to the liver for its first phase of activation by a hydroxylation process at the 25 position of the sterol ring. This still inactive form then goes to the kidney for its finial activation by a hydroxylation process on the 25 position of the sterol ring. This now activated vitamin D acts as a hormone similar to PTH to help absorb calcium from the gut and bone.
  7. 7. Calcium and phosphate metabolism
  8. 8. Mobilization of Ca from Bone    When the serum calcium level drops below normal the parathyroid gland puts out PTH which then activates resting bone cells to differentiate into an active lytic osteoclast. On the bone surface the active brush border of the cell secrets collagenase enzyme which dissolves bone mineral thus liberating calcium and phosphorous ions which are then transported across the cell to its outer membrane Where a 1,25,(OH)2 pumping mechanism transports the calcium and phosphorous into the blood stream.
  9. 9. Metabolic, endocrinal and nutritional bone diseases affect the skeleton through too much or too little calcified bone.  Too little calcified bone is either due to - Decrease bone formation. - increase bone resorption. 
  10. 10. Radiographic criteria of endocrinal, metabolic and nutritional diseases  They are commonly diffuse or at least multifocal, although isolated bone lesion may be found as in brown tumor.  They tend to involve specific location, and tend to be symmetrical in the body.
  11. 11. Endocrinal disorders          Acromegaly. Gigantism. Cushing syndrome. Hyperparathyroidism. Hypoparathyroidism. Pseudohypoparathyroidism. Pseudo-pseudohypoparathyroidism. Hyperthyroidism. Hypothyroidism.
  12. 12. Acromegaly (hyperpituitrism). Result from excess production of growth hormone by anterior pituitary gland.  In adult Acromegaly.  In children Gigantism 
  13. 13. Radiological findings Skull      Thickened calvarium. Frontal bossing. Prognathism. Enlarged mastoid air cells and sinuses. Enlargement of pituitary fossa.
  14. 14. Spine.  Enlarged vertebral bodies with posterior scalloping.  Increase disc height.
  15. 15. Hands.  Enlarged bone and soft tissue shadow.  Spade like terminal tufts or arrowhead distal phalanges.
  16. 16. Measurments Sesamoid index of the thumb. < 40 mm. in male. < 32 mm. in female.  Tuftal width of the third finger. < 10 mm. in female. < 12 mm. in male.  Joint space of the second MCP joint. = 2.5 mm. in both men and female.  Thickness of phalangeal soft tissue < 26 mm. In male. < 23 mm. in female. 
  17. 17.      Joint spaces Wide joint spaces due to enlarged articular cartilage Feet Increase thickness of fat pad Long bone Elongated with prominent muscle attachment. Calcifications Ear pinna Chondrocalcificinosis Cardiomegaly + visceromegaly
  18. 18. Gigantism Imaging findings. Proportional yet exaggerated bone growth.  Bone increase in length and diameter.  Enlarged sella turcica. 
  19. 19. Cushing disease It is hyperadrenocorticism due to  Anterior lobe tu.  Adrenal cortex tu.  Complication of therapy. Imaging findings.  Osteoporosis (more at trabecular bone).  Increase insufficiency fractures in vertebra, scapula, ribs and pubic bones.
  20. 20. Hyperparathyroidism It is defined by increase level of parathormone and parathormone peptides in the serum.  It can be divided in to three types.  Primary.  Secondary.  Tertiary. 
  21. 21. Primary hyperparathyroidism May be the result of.  Adenomas (single or multiple) 90%  Diffuse hyperplasia.  Carcinomas. In all cases : serum Ca level is increased.   This disorder is due to a primary defect in the parathyroid glands >>> increased secretion of PTH >>> increase serum calcium and decrease serum phosphorus. The increase in serum calcium concentration is due in part to activation of the osteoclastic system.
  22. 22. Secondary hyperparathyroidism  Is induced by any condition or circumstance that cause serum calcium to fall. It may be the result of:  Vit. D deficiency.  Chronic renal failure.  Intestinal malabsorption of Ca (rare).  In diseased kidney>>> decrease active Vit. D >>> decrease int. ca absorption>>> hypocalcaemia>>> stimulate parathyroid gland>>> increase PTH
  23. 23. Tertiary hyperparathyroidism  It is result of long standing secondary hyperparathyroidism due to chronic renal failure.  In tertiary hyperparathyroidism, the parathyroid glands function autonomously.
  24. 24. Clinical presentation In primary hyperparathyroidism may be:  Asymptomatic hypercalcemia.  In younger patients, the most common presentations are: 1. Renal stone and Nephrocalcinosis (25-35%). 2. High blood pressure (40-60%). 3. Acute arthropathy (pseudogout).  Other symptoms as osteoporosis, peptic ulcer, acute muscle weakness & mild non specific symptoms.
  25. 25. To understand radiological changes in PTH you have to know: An elevated level of parathormone : In early phase>>>> increase bone mass In later stages>>>> trabecular bone resorption may occur.   Because HPT today is usually detected early through increased level of serum calcium, we observe more patients with more bone formation and fewer patients with less bone.
  26. 26. Radiological findings in primary hyperparathyroidism. Subperiosteal bone resorption. Subchondral bone resorption. Subligamentous bone resorption. Intracortical bone resorption. Osteopenia. Brown tumor. Erosive arthropathy. Chondrocalcinosis. Renal calculi, rarely Nephrocalcinosis. 10. Rarely osteosclerosis. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

Radiologic findings of HYPERPARATHYROIDIS M The M/C radiologic abnormality is generalized  osteopenia.  Bone resorption, bone sclerosis, brown tumors, chondrocalcinosis, soft tissue calcification, and vascular calcification.  Brown tumors appear as well-defined lytic lesions.  After resection of parathyroid adenomas, the lesions may become sclerotic and may mimic blastic metastasis. Bone resorption, the most characteristic finding, is usually classified as   subchondral, trabecular, endosteal, intracortical, subperios teal, subligamentous, and subtendinous.
  28. 28. Subperiosteal resorption - M/C     Usually occurs in the hands and feet. M/C affected site: radial aspects of the middle phalanges. Acro-osteolysis or phalangeal tufts resoption may also be present. Trabecular resorption   Often seen in the diploic space of the skull, where it has a characteristic salt and pepper appearance.

Chondrocalcinosis of the symphysis pubis and nephrocalcinosis on the abdominal x ray is diagnostic of hyperparathyroidism.
  36. 36. Brown tumor (ostitis fibrosa cystica). These are cystic lesions within bone due to excessive osteoclastic resorption (osteopenia).  Radiographically, brown tumors appear as low density multiloculated cysts that can occur in any skeletal site and may cause expansion of bones. 
