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]
BACKGROUNDSmall tumor diagnostic tools including ultrasound‐guided fine needle aspiration (FNA) and computed tomography (CT) could be causing rising and racially/ethnically different thyroid cancer incidence rates due to variable overdiagnosis of indolent tumors. Papillary tumors and
CONCLUSIONS: Sonographically detectable echogenic foci in malignant pediatric thyroid nodules can be reliably classified on the basis of American College of Radiology Thyroid Imaging, Reporting and Data System, with punctate echogenic foci composing the most common subtype. These echogenic foci do not represent psammomatous calcifications most of the time; instead, more than half of the malignant thyroid nodules with echogenic foci contained stromal calcifications or sticky colloid.
CONCLUSION Although rare, thyroid cancer is not definitively excluded in hyperthyroid patients and it should always be considered as differential diagnosis.
To evaluate the diagnostic value of histogram analysis using ultrasound (US) to differentiate between the subtypes of follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (FVPTC).
ConclusionsOccult malignancy is not rare among adult patients presenting with a solitary cystic mass of the lateral neck. A diagnostic algorithm is proposed. Further studies are needed to establish the appropriate workup and management of an adult patient presenting with a solitary cystic mass of the lateral neck.
Conclusion: Thyroid disease is common in children with PHTS. Physicians caring for patients with early thyroid abnormalities and additional syndromal features should be aware of PHTS as a potentially underlying disorder. Ultrasound screening should be performed immediately after diagnosis of PHTS and repeated yearly or more frequently. Because of possible early cancer development, we recommend early surgical intervention in the form of total thyroidectomy in cases of suspicious ultrasound findings.What is Known:•PHTS patients are at high risk of developing benign and malignant tumors.•Individual cases of thyroid ...
ConclusionsFamily history plays a significant role in the development of thyroid cancer, and having first degree relatives with not only medullary, but also papillary thyroid cancer strongly predicts the risk of developing the malignant thyroid disease. In contrast, benign thyroid disorders in family history do not lead to the development of thyroid cancer.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
Conclusions The high suspicion US pattern of the 2015 ATA guidelines, not cytologic diagnosis, could be a predicting marker of LNM in patients with classical PTC.
Conclusion: Physicians should consider the diagnosis of invasive thyroid carcinoma in a dysphonic patient with an infiltrative endolaryngeal process despite intact vocal fold mobility. PMID: 29230133 [PubMed]
To evaluate the utility of ultrasound (US) patterns based on the 2015 American Thyroid Association (ATA) guidelines and cytologic diagnosis of the Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology as predicting markers for lymph node metastasis (LNM) in classical papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC).
