Parthenolide Inhibits the Proliferation of MDA-T32 Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma Cells in Vitro and in Mouse Tumor Xenografts and Activates Autophagy and Apoptosis by Downregulation of the Mammalian Target of Rapamycin (mTOR)/PI3K/AKT Signaling Pathway.
CONCLUSIONS Parthenolide inhibited the growth and migration of MDA-T32 human papillary thyroid carcinoma cells in vitro and mouse tumor xenografts and activated autophagy and apoptosis by downregulation of the mTOR/PI3K/AKT signaling pathway. PMID: 31322140 [PubMed - in process]
We report the development of hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) in a patient after initiation of treatment with sorafenib. To our knowledge, sorafenib-induced HS in the axillary and inguinal skin folds has not been previously reported. A 33-year-old male on sorafenib for papillary thyroid cancer presented for evaluation of “boils” that began when he initiated chemotherapy 5 years prior and had continued to progress.

Lymph nodes in the right paratracheal region are separated as anterior and posterior on the basis with right recurrent laryngeal nerve. Dissection of the right posterior paratracheal lymph nodes is sometimes overlooked during a central neck dissection. Therefore, this study was designed to assess the clinicopathologic risk factors and prognostic implication for recurrence related to the presence of right posterior paratracheal lymph nodes metastasis in patient with right-sided papillary thyroid carcinoma.
;n ES Abstract A peripheral (gingival) fibroma, a gingival cyst and hyperplastic gingivitis occurred simultaneously in a man with metastatic medullary thyroid carcinoma (MCT). The gingival growths and hyperplasia appeared to be related to poor oral hygiene rather than to the MTC. Despite the patient's improved oral hygiene, the hyperplastic gingivitis and peripheral fibroma recurred, and a new peripheral fibroma and gingival cyst developed, which prompted reconsideration of a link with the MTC. MTC cells secrete calcitonin (CT), procalcitonin (ProCT) and growth factors; the patient's serum CT and ProCT were severa...

ConclusionsPhysicians should be aware of the possibility of the emergence of primary malignancies in patients with a history of papillary thyroid carcinoma, especially lung cancer as it is a common site of papillary thyroid carcinoma metastases. Using appropriate diagnostic evaluations in order to choose the best therapeutic option is of utmost importance.
