At the end of the block the student must be familiar with the terminology of diseases of the endocrine system, its macroscopic and microscopic aspects and molecular bases. It is to know the differences between benign and malignant, and the contribution of Pathology in diagnosis and prognosis of these diseases.
UNIT 26. GENERAL PATHOLOGY endocrine system (I).
Contents: Pituitary: anatomical-functional remember. adenohipofisaria overactivity and pituitary adenomas, hypopituitarism, posterior pituitary syndromes. Thyroid anatomical and functional recall. Congenital thyroid disorders: thyroglossal duct cyst. Thyroiditis: subacute (de Quervain), fibrous (Riedel), Autoimmune (Hashimoto). Goiter, nodular hyperplasia and diffuse hyperplasia. benign and malignant thyroid tumors: follicular adenoma, papillary carcinoma, follicular carcinoma, medullary carcinoma, undifferentiated carcinoma.
UNIT 27. GENERAL PATHOLOGY endocrine system (II).
Contents: Parathyroid: hyperparathyroidism (primary and secondary), hypoparathyroidism. Adrenal: adrenocortical hyperfunction, adrenal insufficiency, adrenocortical neoplasms. Tumors of the adrenal medulla pheochromocytoma. Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Syndromes.
KEY ISSUES TO DEVELOP:
PATHOLOGY of the pituitary gland (adenoma, craniopharyngioma, metastasis, multiple endocrine neoplasia)
Parathyroid PATHOLOGY (hyperparathyroidism Hyperplasia, Adenoma, Carcinoma)
Parotid gland tumors adrenal adenoma, myelolipoma, Adenocarcinoma CORTICAL, pheochromocytoma, TUMORS Neuroblastic)
