161. Clinical and etiologic evaluation of the children with chronic urticaria. (PubMed)

this study, we evaluated the clinical features, laboratory investigations, and provocation tests of children with different subtypes of CU according to a new classification.Two hundred and twenty-two children (59.9% girls) were enrolled in the study. Of the study patients, 59.9% and 40.1% were diagnosed as having CSU and CIndU, respectively. Antithyroid antibody levels were positive in 7.1% of the patients with CSU, 32.8% of the children had positive 14C-urea breath test results, and 6.5% of the patients

162. The natural history of subclinical hyperthyroidism in Graves' disease - the rule of thirds. (PubMed)

regression analysis showed that older age and positive antithyroid peroxidase (TPO) antibody status had a positive association with risk of progression to overt hyperthyroidism, with hazard ratios of 1.06 ([confidence interval (CI) 1.02-1.10], p < 0.01) per year and 10.15 ([CI 1.83-56.23], p < 0.01), respectively, independent of other risk factors including, smoking, TRAb levels at diagnosis, and sex.A third each of patients with SH due to GD progress, normalize, or remain in the SH state. Older people (...) by either a raised TSH receptor antibody (TRAb) level or uniform uptake on Technetium scan.Forty-four patients (89% female, 16% current smokers, and 5% with active Graves' orbitopathy) were diagnosed with SH due to GD. Over the follow-up period (median 32 months), approximately one third (34%) of the cohort progressed to overt hyperthyroidism, one third (34%) normalized their thyroid function, slightly less than one third (30%) remained in the SH state, while one person became hypothyroid.

163. Does Immunosuppressive Therapy Improve Outcomes in Graves' disease? A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. (PubMed)

Does Immunosuppressive Therapy Improve Outcomes in Graves' disease? A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. Whether the addition of immunosuppressive drugs to standard antithyroid drugs reduces the relapse risk in Graves' disease remains uncertain.The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of immunosuppressive drugs on the relapse rate after a first episode of hyperthyroidism due to Graves' disease.Based on a pre-specified protocol, PubMed (1946-July 2015), EMBASE (1947-July 2015 (...) antibody (TRAb) levels. Seven trials with 862 participants were included. Most trials were small with a moderate to high risk of bias. There were 113 relapses in 481 (23.5%) patients receiving immunosuppressive drugs compared with 225 relapses in 381 (59.1%) control patients (risk ratio for recurrence 0.55; [confidence interval (CI) 0.41-0.75]). Subgroup analyses showed similar effects for randomized trials and controlled trials (I(2) 0%), and for trials using corticosteroid and non-corticosteroid

Steroid-responsive encephalopathy associated with autoimmune thyroiditis (SREAT): Characteristics, treatment and outcome in 251 cases from the literature. Steroid-responsive encephalopathy and associated autoimmune thyroiditis (SREAT) is characterized by encephalopathy and the presence of antithyroid antibodies. We describe the clinical presentation, outcome and treatments for SREAT by a systematic review of the literature.MEDLINE via PubMed, Web of Science and the Cochrane Library were (...) searched for articles published until 2015. Inclusion criteria were unexplained encephalopathy with antithyroid antibodies.We found reports of 251 patients (median age 52years [range 18-86], 73% females, 80 [32%] with preexisting thyroiditis). Patients presented encephalitis signs with convulsions (n=117; 47%), confusion (n=115, 46%), speech disorder (n=91, 37%), memory impairment (n=107, 43%), gait disturbance (n=67, 27%) and persecutory delusions (n=61, 25%).

(in three patients within the first 2 years). In four patients, lithium concentration was between 0.60 and 0.65 mmol/l and in one patient, between 0.7 and 0.8 mmol/l. Four were very good lithium responders. One man had stage 3 chronic kidney disease, and the other stage 2/3 chronic kidney disease. All three women had asymptomatic stage 2 chronic kidney disease. One woman had severe thyroid dysfunction (Hashimoto's disease) with extremely high levels of antithyroid peroxidase antibodies (...) and antithyroglobulin antibodies and was receiving thyroxine. Serum calcium levels were normal or borderline in all five patients, and most cognitive functions were comparable to healthy persons of similar gender, age and years of education. All the patients were professionally active until 55-65 years and their family and social functioning were satisfactory. It was concluded that, in good lithium responders, ultra-long-term treatment with lithium enables good professional and psychosocial functioning

Fatal outcome in a Hispanic woman with moyamoya syndrome and Graves’ disease We describe the case of a young Hispanic female who presented with thyrotoxicosis with seizures and ischemic stroke. She was diagnosed with a rare vasculopathy - moyamoya syndrome. After starting antithyroid therapy, her neurologic symptoms did not improve. Acute neurosurgical intervention had relieved her symptoms in the immediate post-operative period after re-anastomosis surgery. However, 2 post-operative days (...) revascularization surgery may protect the patient from perioperative mortality and morbidity.Although moyamoya disease is usually thought to be genetically associated, there are reports that thyroid antibodies may play a role in its pathogenesis and have an autoimmune link.Fluctuations in baseline thyroid function for patients with known Graves' disease may be a potentiating factor in exacerbating moyamoya vasculopathy.

is a prospective observational study of 720 healthy Chilean women attending their first prenatal consultation at an outpatient clinic. Thyroid function [TSH, Free T4, Total T4 and antithyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPOAb)] and BMI were assessed at 8·8 ± 2·4 weeks of gestational age.Median, 2·5th percentile (p2·5), and 97·5th percentile (p97·5) TSH values were higher, while median, p2·5, and p97·5 free T4 values were lower in obese patients compared with normal weight patients. Obesity was associated (...) with a median TSH 16% higher (P = 0·035) and a median free T4 6·5% lower (P < 0·01) than values from patients with normal weight. BMI had a small, but statistically significant effect on TSH (P = 0·04) and free T4 (P < 0·01) when adjusted by maternal age, TPO antibodies, parity, sex of the newborn, gestational age and smoking. In all TPOAb (-) patients, median (p2·5-p.97·5) TSH was 1·96 mIU/l (0·11-5·96 mIU/l) and median (p2·5-p.97·5) free T4 was 14·54 pmol/l (11·1 - 19·02 pmol/l). Applying these reference
