ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of abnormal thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) secretions in a male patient. The biochemical and radiological investigations diagnosed a TSHoma. These abnormal secretions of TSH are attributed to interfering antibodies to thyroxine (T4), triiodothyrionine (T3), and Amiodarone therapy. A definitive diagnosis is said be obtained only after demonstrating positive TSH immunostaining of pituitary tissue obtained from surgery.

    Parathyroid cysts are rare causes of neck swelling accounting for 0.6% of thyroid and parathyroid lesions. They may be functional, resulting in the release of parathyroid hormone, or non-functional. Non-functional cysts may be cosmetically unacceptable or cause dysphagia, dyspnoea or recurrent...
