CONCLUSIONS: Elevated TgAb levels are associated with symptom burden in HT patients, suggesting a role of thyroid autoimmunity in clinical manifestations of HT. Based on these results, we recommend screening for TgAb antibodies in HT patients with symptom burden. We also suggest that further work on understandings of symptoms appearance due to their autoimmune or hypothyroid causation is needed. PMID: 30332318 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Rationale: A sellar mass in children is most often seen in craniopharyngeal tumors, intracranial germ cell tumors, or pituitary adenomas. However, pituitary hyperplasia secondary to primary hypothyroidism (PHPH) is not commonly seen in children. Patient concerns: A 10-year-old girl was admitted due to growth retardation and obesity for 4 years. On physical examination, the patient had a height of 118 cm, body weight of 46 kg, body mass index (BMI) of 33.0 kg/m2. Diagnoses: After magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and laboratory tests, her initial diagnosis was Hashimoto's thyroiditis, primary hypothyroidism, an...

Authors: Tammaro A, Pigliacelli F, Fumarola A, Persechino S Abstract Background. Mandatory iodine fortification of salt was introduced in Italy in 2005. The purpose of our study is to estimate the trend of thyroid diseases in Italy before and after mandatory iodization in Italy. Methods. 7976 patients (6802 females; 1174 males) were examined between 2003 and 2010. We divided the patients into categories according to their clinical diagnosis. Later, we evaluated for each patient if there was the positivity for antibodies anti TPO. Finally, we collected data about TSH values of all patients who did not use therapy fo...

In this report, we studied the cases with pathologically evident ischemic heart disease (IHD) at autopsy and correlated with the absence or presence of thyroid disease. In a 5-year retrospective autopsy-based study, cases with IHD in whom the thyroid gland was dissected at autopsy were analyzed. The thyroid gland was available for assessment in 181 of the 255 autopsied cases with IHD. The majority were males with a mean age of 59.9 years. Thyroid pathology was noted in 58 patients (32.0%) in the form of uninodular or multinodular goiter (56.9%), lymphocytic thyroiditis (37.9%), and Hashimoto's thyroiditis (5.2%). Based on ...

Authors: Li H, Min J, Mao X, Wang X, Yang Y, Chen Y Abstract Autoimmune thyroiditis is among the most prevalent of all the autoimmunities in population. It is characterized as both cellular immune responses with T, B cells infiltrating to the thyroid gland followed by hypothyroidism as a result of destruction of the thyroid follicles and fibrous replacement of the parenchymal tissue, as well as immune response for TPO and Tg-antibody production. Experimental autoimmune thyroiditis (EAT) has been proven to be an ideal model to study autoimmune thyroiditis. In the present study, we induced an EAT model in rats and ex...

CONCLUSION: We suggest that heterozygous genotype CT is a genetic risk factor for developing more severe HT due to enhanced free T4 serum level at the onset of the disease, before developing the hypothyroid stage. PMID: 30070177 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We report a case of cerebellar atrophy in a 31 year old female whose detailed evaluation had revealed sub-clinical hypothyroidism secondary to autoimmune thyroiditis with a very high anti-TPO (anti-thyroid peroxidase) antibody levels. MRI (Magnetic Resonanace Imaging) of brain showed diffuse bilateral cerebellar atrophy. She was treated with thyroid hormone supplementation and after one year of follow up, cerebellar signs had disappeared completely with significant reduction in anti-TPO antibody levels. Imaging of the brain post one year of follow-up revealed normal cerebellum. Hence, we opine that thyroid dysfunction shou...

Conclusion: The diagnostic cytological features in Hashimoto's thyroiditis are increased background lymphocytes, lymphocytic infiltration of thyroid follicular cell clusters, and Hurthle cells. FNAC remains the "Gold Standard" for diagnosing Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Clinical history, thyroid function, and biochemical parameters are the key for diagnosis of other forms of thyroiditis.

ShearWave™ elastography for evaluation of the elasticity of Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Clin Hemorheol Microcirc. 2018 Apr 13;: Authors: Liu H, Zhu Y, Jiao J, Yuan J, Pu T, Yong Q Abstract The aim of this study was to assess the elasticity of Hashimoto's thyroiditis in the different processes via supersonic ShearWave™ Elastography (SWE™). Quantitative information is delivered as Young's modulus value expressed in kilo-Pascal (kPa). 30 healthy female and 30 healthy male individuals aging at 40±20 y had undergone conventional ultrasonography and SWE to determine the influence of ge...

Authors: Guo Y, Zynat J, Xing S, Xin L, Li S, Mammat N, Chen Y, Zhao L, Zhao H, Wang X Abstract Recent incidence rates for Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) and hypothyroidism are higher than those of previous studies. Previous studies indicated that T helper cells may have a major role in the pathogenesis and development of HT, but there is no consensus in the literature. The aim of the present study was to explore the peripheral T helper cell response in the different stages of HT. In this cross-sectional study, we performed flow cytometry analysis to determine the various T cell subsets of 389 patients with HT (34 pa...
