In specific circumstances it may be helpful in further clinical decision making. In patients with a goitre or mildly elevated TSH, anti-TPO measurement is used to evaluate whether the cause is autoimmune thyroiditis. 13 TPO antibody positivity increases the risk of developing hypothyroidism in patients with subclinical hypothyroidism, autoimmune diseases (e.g., type 1 diabetes), chromosomal disorders (e.g., Turner syndrome and Down syndrome) or patients who

Enlargement of the gland can occur with or without nodules and can involve the whole gland symmetrically or predominantly affect one lobe. Thyrotoxicosis is a condition of elevated thyroid hormone production. The most common causes are intrinsic to the thyroid and include Graves disease, toxic adenoma, toxic multinodular goiter, and subacute thyroiditis.

, adenomatous or cancerous. The majority of thyroid nodules are benign and they are often asymptomatic. There may be a single thyroid nodule (solitary nodule) or multiple thyroid nodules (multinodular goitre). Thyroid nodules can cause an overactive thyroid, which affects the normal production of thyroxine or triiodothyronine. 2.2 Treatment of benign thyroid nodules may be necessary if they are symptomatic or causing cosmetic problems.

In an RCT of 80 patients with solid, compressive, non-functioning benign thyroid nodules treated by RFA or no treatment, the median percentage volume changes were 71% reduction and 3% increase respectively (p=0.0001). In a non-randomised comparative study of 400 patients with nodular goitre treated by RFA or surgery there was a mean percentage volume reduction of 85(±17.1)% after RFA at 12-month follow-up (p

127. Hyperthyroidism. (Abstract)

Hyperthyroidism. Thyrotoxicosis is a general term for excess circulating and tissue thyroid hormone levels, whereas hyperthyroidism specifically denotes disorders involving a hyperactive thyroid gland (Graves disease, toxic multinodular goiter, toxic adenoma). Diagnosis and determination of the cause rely on clinical evaluation, laboratory tests, and imaging studies. Hyperthyroidism is treated with antithyroid drugs, radioactive iodine ablation, or thyroidectomy. Other types of thyrotoxicosis

For the most part, thyroid disorders are insidious, slow-progressing conditions that can be managed in the outpatient setting. However, in rare circumstances, thyroid disorders may worsen and become medical emergencies. Goitre 1 What are the thyroid emergencies? The two main thyroid emergencies are myxedema coma and thyroid storm . Myxedema coma occurs when there is severe hypothyroidism, and is often precipitated by illness.

hormone regulation, the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis [1] List 8 causes of thyrotoxicosis Thyrotoxicosis is a hypermetabolic condition that results from elevated levels of thyroid hormones—triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). This can occur from: Hormone overproduction (Graves’ disease, toxic multinodular goiter), Increased thyroid hormone release from an injured gland (thyroiditis, trauma), Exogenous thyroid hormone (thyrotoxicosis factitia). Most cases of thyrotoxicosis (>80%) are due (...) to autoimmune disease. For the purpose of this discussion, the terms hyperthyroidism and thyrotoxicosis are used interchangeably. Here’s the list of 8 causes: Graves’ disease: Most common cause! Autoimmune: autoantibodies bind to the TSH receptor and stimulate thyroid hormone production and release Toxic multinodular goiter: second most common cause Autonomously functioning nodules, usually in women older than 50 years Milder than Graves’ disease – but can present acutely in patients who are iodine

130. Short term effects of levothyroxine treatment in thyroid multinodular disease. (Abstract)

Short term effects of levothyroxine treatment in thyroid multinodular disease. The levothyroxine suppressive efficacy in benign thyroid nodules treatment is well described in uninodular non-toxic goiter, whereas only few controlled trials enrolled patients with multinodular disease. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the short term effects of levothyroxine treatment in never treated, pre-menopausal women affected by thyroid multinodular disease. Seventy-one pre-menopausal women (...) with thyroid multinodular disease, still presenting normal TSH levels, from Latina area were randomly assigned to a levothyroxine treated or control group. Biochemical and ultrasonography evaluations of thyroid were monitored at the enrollment and after 6, 12 and 24 months of treatment. In the levothyroxine treated group, after 1 year of treatment, thyroid and dominant nodule volume and number of nodules >0.5 mL significantly decreased from a median of 12.0 to 9.8 mL (p <0.001), from 1.0 to 0.5 mL (p

The predictors of normal thyroid function have also been analyzed separately for patients with GD (Graves' disease) and TMNG (toxic multinodular goiter).The analysis showed that age (OR 1,06; 95%CI 1.025-1.096, p = 0,001), thyroid gland volume (OR 1,04; 95%CI 1,02-1,06; p < 0.001) and iodine uptake level (OR 0,952; 95%CI 0,91-0,98; p = 0,004) were significant factors of achieving normal thyroid function after RAI therapy.
