Submental nodal metastasis in papillary carcinoma of the thyroid

We report two young men who presented with submental nodal metastasis from PCT. Both underwent total thyroidectomy with central compartment neck dissection and modified radical neck dissection (MRND). Probable factors which might influence submental nodal metastasis are analyzed. We conclude that physicians should be aware of the possibility of submental nodal metastasis from PCT. A selective approach for neck dissection can be an alternative to MRND, reducing the morbidity in management of such cases.

Conclusion: Patients with type 1 DM should be examined for thyroid diseases, and patients with suspected thyroid disease should be evaluated with a thyroid ultrasound. Type 1 DM and PTC coexistence albeit very rare; It should be known that type 1 diabetes can be seen together with thyroid cancer. PMID: 31686641 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

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.

This report describes a very rare case of a huge slow-growing neck metastasis based on a 6 mm papillary thyroid microcarcinoma. This patient presented with a painless, but continuously growing right lateral neck mass. Aside from that, no specific complaints were mentioned. Diagnosis: The underlying cause of this patient's neck mass turned out to be an occult papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (Ø 6 mm) with metastatic invasion and subsequent cystic degeneration of cervical lymph nodes. Accurate diagnosis was made after surgical intervention through histopathological analysis. Interventions: The patient underw...

Conclusion: In this study, no correlation between EBV and thyroid diseases was found in a cohort from southern China. Introduction Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a well-known human tumor virus with a very high prevalence in the population, especially for children and youth. EBV serum (IgG) is positive in an estimated 95% of the world's population (1). EBV infection is associated with epithelial and lymphoid malignancies, including nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), gastric cancer, Hodgkin's lymphoma and Burkitt's lymphoma (2, 3). Although EBV has B-lymphocyte tropism, it can also infect T lymphocy...

Rationale: Lymphatic embolization is a minimally invasive treatment option for managing chyle leakage after nodal dissection in the neck. After the procedure, the embolic material may cause foreign body granulomatous lymphadenitis and can be a diagnostic challenge for radiologists because of sonographic similarity to metastatic lymph node. Herein, we describe a clinical case of granulomatous lymphadenitis due to embolic material mimicking nodal metastasis detected on ultrasonography (US) with cytologic findings in a patient with thyroid cancer who underwent lymphatic embolization to treat chyle leakage after total thyroi...

ConclusionThis study revealed the presence of CAFs in PTC. Furthermore, CAFs were found to be a risk factor of LN metastasis in PTC. Therefore, CAFs may be used as a predictive marker for LN metastasis in patients with PTC.

Authors: Claimon A, Pusuwan P, Khiewvan B Abstract Objective: Differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) has a favorable prognosis following treatment by thyroidectomy and subsequent post-operative radioactive iodine therapy (RAIT). However, prognostic factors for the success of the first RAIT remain inconclusive. The aim of the present study was to evaluate prognostic factors for the success of the first RAIT in DTC patients. Material and Method: We retrospectively studied 401 DTC patients who underwent total, near-total and subtotal thyroidectomy followed by high dose RAIT from 1994 to 2004. Successful RAIT was asse...

We present a case of 35-year-old man with medullary thyroid carcinoma, post total thyroidectomy and bilateral neck dissection, now presenting with rising calcitonin levels (doubling time 9 months) and local neck recurrence with negative 131I-MIBG scan. We decided to perform 68Ga-PSMA-HBED-CC PET/CT scan to assess PSMA expression and explore the therapeutic option in view of rising serum calcitonin. It revealed intense PSMA uptake in the soft tissue mass in left thyroid bed and cervical lymph nodes.

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...
