Radiofrequency Ablation of Primary Thyroid Carcinoma: Efficacy According to the Types of Thyroid Carcinoma.

CONCLUSION: In patients with primary thyroid carcinoma, RFA achieved excellent local tumor control for papillary macro- and microcarcinoma; however, its clinical effect on anaplastic carcinoma was questionable. PMID: 29322881 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: This is the first case to our knowledge describing both such lesions in one patient and the first case describing the use of 2-(3-{1-carboxy-5-[(6-[18F]fluoro-pyridine-3-carbonyl)-amino]-pentyl}-ureido)-pentanedioic acid (18F-DCFPyL)-PSMA PET/CT to detect IPAS. Furthermore we highlight the value of nuclear medicine diagnostic work up in complex cases. PMID: 30006647 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: A lobulated or irregular margin of the thyroid nodule is independently associated with BRAFV600E mutation in patients with PTC. In addition, higher ACR TI-RADS point scores is an independent risk factor for BRAFV600E mutation, and ACR TI-RADS point scores is positively associated with the risk of BRAFV600E mutation in solitary PTC, especially in papillary thyroid microcarcinoma. Our findings may be helpful for preoperative identification and medical management of PTC patients with BRAFV600E mutation.

Conclusion: The presence of multiple suspicious US findings of thyroid nodules can predict the BRAFV600E mutation status of papillary thyroid cancer nodules. The highest accuracy overall (93.2%) was achieved by combining calcification, irregular margins, and hypoechogenicity with extrathyroidal extension and LN metastasis. Future multi-institutional studies are warranted to help surgeons with risk stratification and operative planning for patients with papillary thyroid cancer.Eur Thyroid J

Conclusions Surgical therapy demonstrated incomplete ablation of primary PTC and omission of LNM by thermal ablation in this cohort of patients. We suggest that thermal ablation should be recommended with caution as treatment of operable patients with primary PTC. PMID: 29962285 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Primary squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in the thyroid is extremely rare and has been reported in #x3c; 1% of all thyroid cancer cases. Primary SCC in the thyroid was thought to be a transitional form derived from adenocarcinomas; therefore, the majority of reported cases have focused on the conjunction with other histological adenocarcinomas. A 73-year-old male presented to our hospital with bilateral vocal fold palsy and an anterior neck mass. Ultrasound sonography revealed a bulky tumor in the thyroid and bilateral cervical lymphadenopathy. We performed fine-needle aspiration cytology from the thyroid tumor, which reveale...

The identification of intravascular tumor thrombi in thyroid at the time of fine-needle aspiration is important as it is, by definition, a diagnosis of malignancy. While ultrasound findings of tumor thrombi in the great veins of the neck have been well described, thrombi in the thyroid veins can be very difficult to detect and have been seldom reported. This case study, with extensive thyroid vein tumor involvement, provides clues for raising the possibility of a malignant process at the time of ultrasound-guided FNA, by correlating the pathology findings with the ultrasound images.

Authors: Pomahacova R, Zamboryova J, Paterova P, Fiklik K, Cerna Z, Lad V, Skalicka E, Huml M, Sykora J Abstract BACKGROUND: The prevalence of autoimmune thyroiditis (AIT), as the most common autoimmune disease (AD) and papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) is steadily rising in children. The aim of this study was to determine the coexistence of other AD and thyroid carcinoma (TC) in AIT. METHODS: The cross-sectional study conducted at a tertiary center comprised AIT children (
