CONCLUSION This case demonstrates that, similarly to Graves ’ disease, Hashitoxicosis can also be triggered by stressful life events.RESUMO OBJETIVO Mesmo que o estresse seja conhecido h á muito tempo como um fator provocativo para a doença de Graves, sua relação com a tireoidite de Hashimoto é mais controversa. Estudos sobre esse tema são escassos. O objetivo deste artigo é relatar um caso de Hashitoxicose induzida por estresse. RESULTADOS Aqui nós relatamos um caso de Has hitoxicose induzido por um evento psicológico estressante em uma mulher de 28 anos...

Authors: Kumar SSS, Palaniandavan S, Bhargavi MV, Gambeer AS, Nithyalakshmi G Abstract Hashimoto's thyroiditis is a common form of chronic autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) and it often coexists with other autoimmune diseases, but Hashimoto's thyroiditis associated with an autosomal dominant neurofibromatosis type 1 is exceedingly rare. A 30-year-old woman presented with complaints of headache for 1 year on and off. Physical examination revealed nodular swelling in the neck, cafe-au-lait spots, and neurofibromas covering the entire surface of her body. Her thyroid hormones were within normal limits. Thyroid ultraso...

Conclusion: The results of this study showed that 18F-FCH PET/CT was superior to US and MIBI in the preoperative diagnosis of uHPT, especially for lesions diagnosed as the thyroid nodule by US. Nevertheless, larger trials are needed in future to confirm the superiority of FCH PET/CT. Fig 1: Images in a 62-year-old woman with three parathyroid hyperplasia, the later 90 minute planar 99mTc-MIBI SPECT/CT image(a),the axial CT image (not shown) and fusion image(c) cannot present all three lesions clearly because of Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Although the planar 18F-FCH PET image (b) is a little messy because of renal osteopathy,...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Hemithyroidectomy has a known but less predictable sequelae of hypothyroidism. Presence of anti-thyroid antibody is known, well studied risk factor. Other postulated risk factors include higher pre-operative TSH level and lower ratio of post-operative thyroid remnant to the patient's weight. We reviewed our data to address the above mentioned risk factors. METHOD: This was a retrospective study done in National Cheng Kung University Hospital, Taiwan from 2015 to 2017. 125 patients underwent hemithyroidectomy, but 24 patients were excluded due to autoimmune thyroiditis, which was determine...

In conclusion, despite the low prevalence of IET and cervical EET, clinicians and radiologists should be aware of US characteristics of such lesions and of the necessity of confirmation of their benign character. Elastography is a useful tool to initially differentiate PTC and IET. However, due to the high risk of malignancy in thyroid lesions in children, similarity of US features of PTC and IET, and because of the possibility of malignancy in ET, only cytological evaluation provides definitive diagnosis and prevents, on one hand, unnecessary frequent diagnostic procedures and/or surgery and, on the other hand, missing ma...

AbstractPurposeImmune-checkpoint inhibitors have shown great efficacy in clinical oncology and a very safe toxicity profile. Nevertheless, endocrine toxicity and, in particular, thyroid diseases are among the most frequently reported adverse events. The aim of this study was to assess the utility of a complete endocrine evaluation before starting therapy, in order to predict which patients will develop a thyroid disease and will need a close follow-up.MethodsTwenty-eight patients were treated with ipilimumab and nivolumab for non-small-cell lung cancer or malignant pleural mesothelioma. All patients underwent complete endo...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) accounts for 5% of all thyroid cancers and occurs either sporadically or in a hereditary pattern. Routine calcitonin (CT) measurement is suggested for MTC screening in patients with nodular thyroid disease. Patient Findings A 45 years-old woman incidentally discovered, with neck ultrasound, the presence of thyroid micronodules. Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) on thyroid prevailing nodule did not demonstrate cellular atypia. During follow-up, FNA was repeated on the previously analyzed nodule suspicious for Hürthle cell nodule suspicious for follicular neoplasm ...

Our objective was to provide the various sonographic characteristics of papillary thyroid carcinomas for Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) patients, including conventional ultrasound (US), acoustic radiation force impulse Virtual Touch imaging and quantification (ARFI-VTIQ) and contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS). Sixty-nine HT patients with 85 thyroid nodules (TNs) (49 malignant and 36 benign) were enrolled in this study. We evaluated the size, shape, margin, echogenicity, presence of halo, calcification, vascularity and ARFI-VTIQ and CEUS parameters for each nodule and compared the findings with the reference standards of his...
