We describe a case of papillary carcinoma in a thyroglossal cyst with left hemiagenesis of the thyroid gland in a 24-year-old female patient. We opted not to perform a total thyroidectomy as the patient was at low risk for aggressive disease. In this article we review the criteria for selection of thyroidectomy in incidentally discovered papillary carcinomas after thyroglossal cyst excision and management protocol in case of coexisting thyroid hemi-agenesis. To our knowledge, this case represents the second case report of an association between left thyroid hemiagenesis and thyroglossal duct cyst papillary carcinoma.
AbstractBackgroundThe study evaluated the recurrence rate in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) and clinically apparent lymph node metastases (LNM) (cN1) who had low thyroglobulin (Tg) after total thyroidectomy and who were not submitted to adjuvant therapy with131I.MethodsThis was a prospective study. It included 82 cN1 patients ( ≤3 LNM ≤1.5 cm without macroscopic extracapsular extension) with tumors ≤4 cm without macroscopic extrathyroid invasion (T1–2) and who after thyroidectomy had unstimulated Tg (u-Tg)

CONCLUSIONS: The expression of linc00324 is significantly increased in PTC tissues and cells. Silencing linc00324 may inhibit the proliferation of PTC cells, arrest the cell cycle in G1/G0 phase, and promote the apoptosis by inhibiting the Notch signaling pathway.

AbstractObjectiveTo compare the clinical outcome in patients who received adjuvant therapy with radioactive iodine (RAI) using different preparation methods, namely, thyroid hormone withdrawal (THW) and recombinant human thyroid-stimulating hormone (rhTSH), after undergoing thyroidectomy for intermediate- to high-risk differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) according to the American Thyroid Association criteria.MethodsBetween May 2012 and October 2018, 136 patients who underwent adjuvant therapy with high-dose (3700 MBq) RAI for DTC without any metastatic lesions or macroscopic residual lesions after surgical resectio...
[Suspected rare manifestation of a thyroglossal and lateral cervical cyst-a diagnostic and therapeutic approach]. HNO. 2020 Jul 03;: Authors: Karal A, Capraro J, Metternich F, Müller M Abstract A 34-year-old female patient presented to our department with a 1.5 cm midline cystic lesion of the neck. A second cystic mass was found in level 2 of the left lateral neck. Following complete resection, histopathological examination revealed the diagnosis of a dystopic papillary thyroid carcinoma. Total thyroidectomy and bilateral neck dissection were performed. The pat...
Conclusion: I131 radiotherapy might exert therapeutic effects by targeting CDH5, KDR, CD34, FLT4, EMCN, FLT1, ROBO4, PTPRB, and CD93 in THCA patients. PMID: 32626543 [PubMed - in process]
