Liver dysfunction induced by Levothyroxine Sodium Tablets (Euthyrox®) in a hypothyroid patient with Hashimoto's thyroiditis: case report and literature review. Endocr J. 2019 Jun 18;: Authors: Yu H, Zhang W, Shen C, Zhang H, Zhang H, Zhang Y, Zou D, Gong X Abstract A 49-year-old woman with hypothyroidism developed liver dysfunction after increasing dose of levothyroxine (L-T4) (Euthyrox®) from 25 μg to 50 μg. Viral hepatitis, autoimmune hepatitis and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) were ruled out with examinations. She had no concurrent medication and had no history of infectious, ch...

Conclusions: Conventional echocardiography does not exclude subclinical LV wall motion abnormalities in asymptomatic patients with eHT. The results show that myocardial function in children with eHT has impaired in the absence of any clinical symptoms and conventional echocardiography is inadequate to determine these changes.

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,...

PURPOSE: Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) is associated with excess psychiatric in addition to reduced quality of life. However, little is known about risk of unnatural manners of death in HT. We investigated the risk of death by accidents, suicide, violence/h...

The two most common autoimmune conditions of the thyroid include chronic lymphocytic (Hashimoto's) thyroiditis and Graves ’ disease. Both conditions can be treated medically, but surgery plays an important role. Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Graves’ disease are mediated by autoantibodies that interact directly with the thyroid, creating inflammation and impacting thyroid function. Patients may develop large goiters w ith compressive symptoms or malignancy requiring surgical intervention. In addition, there are several surgical indications specific to Hashimoto's and Graves’ Disease.

Rationale: Autoimmune thyroid diseases (ATDs) seldom affect intracranial pressure. Here, we describe a case of spontaneous intracranial hypotension (SIH) related to Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT), which has never been previously published. Patient concerns: A 54-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital due to sudden-onset postural headache, neck pain stiffness, visual blurring, nausea and vomiting. The headache was aggravated when the patient sat or stood up yet rapidly resolved within 1 minute after recumbency. Diagnosis: The patient had a grade 1a diffusely palpable thyroid gland and the laboratory report reveal...

Authors: Abstract OBJECTIVES: The Hashimoto thyroiditis is found to be Th1-related autoimmunity. Recently, it has been proved that the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) may be involved in promoting Th1-mediated autoimmune diseases. However, the role of RAAS in HT pathogenesis remains still unknown. The aim of this study was to determine whether the polymorphisms of ACE, AGTR1 and AGT genes are associated with HT. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) was performed to determine ACE I/D, AGTR1 A1166C and AGT T174M polymorphisms and next chi-square test was used to compare allele frequen...

In this study, we evaluated the association between thyroid echogenicity on ultrasonography (US) and thyroid function in pediatric and adolescent Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) patients. In 86 pediatric and adolescent HT patients, the association between echogenicity and thyroid function and microsomal autoantibody status was evaluated. Among patients with overt hypothyroidism, 89.2% (33/37) showed a US grade of 3 or 4. All of the patients at grade 4 presented with overt hypothyroidism. In contrast, 97.8% (44/49) of the patients with subclinical hypothyroidism or euthyroidism showed grades 1 or 2. Patients with increased th...

Conclusion: The association of MS with autoimmune thyroid diseases supports a common immune-mediated pathogenic mechanism. We assume that the acute exacerbation of HT in our MS patient is associated not with the immunomodulatory effect of DMF but rather with its antioxidative mechanism. Constant monitoring of thyroid hormone levels should be recommended especially if the MS patients in treatment with DMF are affected by concomitant autoimmune thyroid diseases.
