LOPEZ-IBOR ALCOCER, C.; MORERA MONTES, J.; MARTIN GONZALEZ, A.  and  YAGUE ARENAS, M.. Increase of the specific prostatic antigen in a patient with hyperthyroidism . Medifam [online]. 2002, vol.12, n.4, pp.89-92. ISSN 1131-5768.

We comment the clinical case of a patient with antecedent of prostatic hyperplasia surgically intervened that presents later years a marked increase of the prostatic specific antigen (PSA). This increment takes place in the context of a hyperthyroidism episode. We discuss the possible association between the increase of the PSA and thyroid illness. 

Keywords : Prostatic specific antigen (PSA); Hyperthyroidism.
