AbstractAbstract PDF
Rifampin is common drug to treat tuberculosis. Rifampin induced acute renal failure, hemolytic anemia and thrombocytopenia is rare and severe complication. We have experienced a case of rifampin induced acute renal failure, hemolytic anemia and thrombocytopenia. Forty-six years old male was suffered from reactivation of pulmonary tuberculosis, and had to medicate antituberculosis drugs including rifampin(600mg/day). Seven years ago, antituberdulosis medication were successfully administered to treat pulmonary tuberculosis without any side effects of drugs. But eight days after readministration of rifampin, fever, abdominal pain, vomiting, oliguria, elevated BUN and creatinine were developed. And thrombocytopenia was also identified after administration of rifampin. The patient was recovered slowly after discontinuation of rifampin & intensive medical care. The renal function was normalized at 55 days after cessation of rifampin. The renal pathologic findings were interstitial nephritis and acute tubular necrosis. And, the rifampin dependent antibodies were identified by indirect antiglobulin test in the presence of rifampin. So we report this case with a brief review of literature.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Hyperparathyroidism due to parathyroid cancer is rare. It is difficult to diagnose preoperatively but there should be an increased index of suspicion in those parathyroid Patient with palpable neck masses, profound hypercalcemia(greater than 14mg/dl), made increase of the parathyroid hormone level to greater than twice normal, and significant metabolic complications. In parathyroid cancer, systemic calcinosis is an extremely rare manifestation. The most common metastatic calcification site is lung and the other involved site is stomach, liver, skin and heart. After resection of parathyroid tumor, this systemic calcinosis is self-limiting. We experienced a patient with primary hyperparathyroidsm, presented with metastatic calcification in the lung and stomach disappeared by successful parathyroidectomy.
