Background: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has an increase in popularity as a definitive bariatric
operation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate excess weight loss (EWL) and the change in thyroxin (T4)
requirement in morbidly obese patients with clinical hypothyroidism after LSG.
Methods: Between June 2012 a.. Read More
Background: To present for the first time a clinical case of a patient with giant neglected and exulcerated tall-cell
papillary thyroid cancer, who was surgically treated.
Methods: We report a case of a 73-year-old woman with large firm infiltrated and exulcerated anterior neck
tumefaction (12 cm in diameter) clinically s.. Read More
Ultrasound evaluation of the thyroid gland is relatively easy in most cases with excellent visualization of the gland with linear transducer allowing clear characterization of lesions as well as guidance for biopsy. However when retrosternal thyroid tissue extension is present, evaluation may be difficult. We report the simple u.. Read More
Aim: Studying the value of the surgical loupe in the enhancement of performing safe thyroidectomy via dissection
of the major structures which are vulnerable to injury during the operation.
Subjects and methods: 150 patients with benign and malignant thyroid masses underwent near total or total
thyroidectomy at Zagazig un.. Read More
Background: Though neck ultrasound is the first line of choice for the screening of thyroid nodules, very few studies have compared the diagnostic performances of both conventional and advanced ultrasound parameters. In this study, we aim to compare various conventional and advanced ultrasound imaging parameters and confirm .. Read More
Objective: To evaluate the present nutritional status of iodine among euthyroid pregnant women by
measurement of urinary iodine levels.
Material and Methods: 381 pregnant women attending antenatal clinic in the obstetrics and gynaecology department were included in study. Out of 381, 285 euthyroid women were selected as stud.. Read More
Background: The major disorders of thyroid gland are hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism and thyroid disorders are predominantly of autoimmune etiology in pregnant women. To date there is no study done in Ethiopia to show pattern and pregnancy outcomes of pregnant women with thyroid disorders.
Objectives: To assess pattern o.. Read More
Background: There continues to be controversy on the clinical relevance of elderly mild subclinical hypothyroidism (SH), defined as a TSH elevation (4.0-9.99 μIU/L) with normal free thyroxin levels. Objective: To compare physical performance (PP) in elderly individuals with a TSH level above normal range versus normal counter.. Read More
Thyroid disorders, especially thyrotoxicosis, are commonly associated with hepatic dysfunction, but cholestasis is rarely reported. Heart failure, infection, weight loss may play role in the pathogenesis of cholestasis. Cholestasis could be worsened by treatment of hyperthyroidism using Thiamazole, but cholestasis in undia..

Background: Primary thyroid lymphoma is a rare type of thyroid cancer. It accounts for 1 to 5% of all thyroid cancers and 1 to 2% of all lymphomas outside the lymph nodes. Frequently, based on histology and fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNA), it is difficult to distinguish between anaplastic carcinoma and thyroid lymphoma. Open.. Read More
Introduction: Subacute thyroiditis is a self-limited, inflammatory viral thyroid disease which presents with neck pain usually accompanied by systemic symptoms. On the other hand, thyroid storm is a clinical condition of severe sudden hyperthyroidism accompanied by physiologic de-compensation.
Case report: We presented a 2.. Read More
Background: Disease of the thyroid in Sub-Saharan Africa mainly present as multinodular goiter (MNG). Our aim was to standardize indications for total thyroidectomy (TT) after our experience in the major non-governmental hospital of North Uganda. Methods: We included patients submitted to thyroid surgery during 5 camps held by a.. Read More
Background: No previous study has investigated the computed tomography (CT) characteristics of follicular thyroid adenoma (FTA) and follicular thyroid carcinoma (FTC). This study aimed to compare the CT features of FTA and FTC. Methods: Eighty-seven consecutive patients with FTA or FTC that underwent preoperative neck CT from Ja.. Read More
The BTA guidelines for the management of thyroid nodules and cancer have been widely adopted in the UK. We have been applying them in our routine clinical practice for over a year now and we would like to share some of our experiences. Overall, we believe that they are having a positive impact on the management of these conditio.. Read More
Hypothyroidism is an entity that we all encounter in clinical practice, some more frequently than others. At times, this may be due to a referral where another physician has already checked a patient’s thyroid function and made a biochemical diagnosis. However, very often we are faced with the dilemma of whether we should .. Read More
Introduction: Metastases to the thyroid gland are rare in clinical practice. 12 to 34% of secondary thyroid tumors originate from renal carcinoma. We report a case of late thyroid metastasis, eight year after a nephrectomy for clear cell renal carcinoma.
Case: A 70-years-old Caucasian patient followed for a multi-nodular goiter.. Read More
Background: Positron emission tomography/computed tomography is suggested to have a role in detection of iodine negative recurrence in well differentiated thyroid cancer. The aim of this study is to identify role of different imaging modalities in the management of well differentiated thyroid cancer.
Methods: We reviewed 900 we.. Read More
Unilateral thyroid agenesis (thyroid hemiagenesis) is a rare disorder with less than 300 cases currently in the world literature. The current clinical importance of this condition lies in the possibility that such patients may be at an increased risk for a wide range of future pathology in the contralateral lobe. If this indeed .. Read More
Metabolic dysregulation within the tumor microenvironment (TME) is critical to the process of tumorigenesis in various cancer types. Thyrocyte metabolism in papillary and anaplastic thyroid cancer, however, remains poorly characterized, and studies analyzing the role of multicompartment metabolism in thyrocyte oncogenesis are sp..

Thyroid cancers (CA) account for about 0.4% of all CA deaths. It is thus very important to be able to determine the type of CA in view of the differing prognosis and possibility of the CA being a secondary from other glands like the Salivary gland. Mucoepidermoid CA is an extremely rare form of Thyroid CA and not much is known a.. Read More
