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 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT presents a high sensitivity in detecting metastatic lesions in patients with RAIR. Detectability increases with iodine-resistance, both with and without higher thyroid-stimulating hormone levels. These findings might improve staging and subsequent treatment planning, especially with radiolabeled somatostatin analogs.

Quantitative Analysis of the Benefits and Risk of Thyroid Nodule Evaluation in Patients ≥70 Years Old. Thyroid. 2018 Apr 02;: Authors: Wang Z, Vyas CM, Van Benschoten O, Nehs MA, Moore FD, Marqusee E, Krane JF, Kim MI, Heller HT, Gawande AA, Frates MC, Doubilet PM, Doherty GM, Cho NL, Cibas ES, Benson CB, Barletta JA, Zavacki AM, Larsen PR, Alexander EK, Angell TE Abstract BACKGROUND: In older patients, thyroid nodules are frequently detected and referred for evaluation, though usually prove to be benign disease or low-risk cancer. Therefore, management should be guided not solely by malignancy risk...

Authors: Wu CC, Lin JD, Chen JT, Chang CM, Weng HF, Hsueh C, Chien HP, Yu JS Abstract Thyroid ultrasound and ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (USG/FNA) biopsy are currently used for diagnosing papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), but their detection limit could be improved by combining other biomarkers. To discover novel PTC biomarkers, we herein applied a GeLC-MS/MS strategy to analyze the proteome profiles of serum-abundant-protein-depleted FNA cystic fluid from benign and PTC patients, as well as two PTC cell line secretomes. From them, we identified 346, 488, and 2105 proteins, respectively. Comparative a...

Authors: Suzuki A, Hirokawa M, Ito A, Takada N, Higuchi M, Hayashi T, Kuma S, Daa T, Miyauchi A Abstract The pathogenesis of thyroid lymphoepithelial cysts is controversial, and two hypotheses have been proposed, namely derivation from branchial-derived remnants or from squamous metaplasia of the follicular cells. The aim of this study was to clarify the pathogenesis of thyroid lymphoepithelial cysts. We performed pathological and immunohistochemical examination of 21 thyroid lymphoepithelial cysts, 13 non-neoplastic squamous metaplasia samples without thyroid carcinoma, 13 solid cell nests, and 14 lateral cervical...

We present a case of MTC diagnosed through FNA cytology, which was eventually histologically confirmed as a mixed medullary‐follicular carcinoma with negative serum calcitonin expression. Hence, diagnosis of MTC based on FNA should be applied with caution. Ultrasound characteristics of suspicious thyroid nodules are recommended to be evaluated by FNA. However, calcitonin levels should be measured in both the FNA washout fluid and serum when features of MTC are presented or cytology result is inconclusive. If adequate FNA sample is available, a supplementary immunocytochemical staining of markers such as calcitonin, chrom...

This study investigates the application of ultrasound, especially the anteroposterior diameter of nodules in the malignancy and metastasis risk assessment of papillary thyroid microcarcinoma through a retrospective analysis of 500 cases of thyroid nodule ultrasonography. We selected 500 patients with thyroid nodules (maximum nodule diameter ≤2.0 cm) that had been diagnosed clinically and graded TI-RADS 4c by ultrasonography and surgically treated. Among these, there were 258 cases of pathologically diagnosed papillary thyroid microcarcinoma, 72 cases of nodular goiter or adenoma, 137 cases of papillary thyroid carcin...

We present a case of a successful combined treatment of a metastatic lymph node with dense macrocalcification with the use of a single RFA session and radioactive iodine (RAI) ablation in a patient with a previous history of total thyroidectomy and neck node dissection for papillary thyroid carcinoma.Diagnoses:A 71-year-old man with papillary thyroid carcinoma underwent total thyroidectomy and neck node dissection followed by RAI ablation. The stimulated serum thyroglobulin level was 4.74 ng/mL at the time of RAI ablation, and the follow-up ultrasonography 3 months later revealed a 15-mm lymph node with dense macrocalcif...

The 2017 edition of the WHO book on Classification of Tumours of Endocrine Organs includes a new section entitled ‘Other encapsulated follicular-patterned thyroid tumours’, in which the newly created NIFTP (non-invasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features) is identified and described in detail. Despite deleting the word ‘carcinoma’ from its name, NIFTP is not a benign tumor either and is best regarded as a neoplasm with ‘very low malignant potential’. The main goal of the introduction of NIFTP category is to prevent overdiagnosis and overtreatment. Sampling c...
