Differential diagnosis of thyrotoxicosis syndrome in postpartum period

Volkova Natalya , Davidenko Ilya , Ganenko Lilia , Shlyk Olga , Harlamov Alexey , Shevchenko Anastasia

Introduction: Thyrotoxicosis syndrome is a clinical syndrome, associated with the negative effect of strong thyroid hormone excess on the organism. In most cases women with thyrotoxicosis syndrome in postpartum period have postpartum thyroiditis, caused by reactivation of the immune system after gestational suppression. However sometimes Graves disease can manifest during the postpartum period, this condition also results in thyrotoxicosis syndrome and requires radical thyroid...

Primary thyroid lymphoma: a differential diagnosis to be considered

Cunha Clara , Capitao Ricardo , Silva Eugenia , Saraiva Catarina , Oliveira Manuela

Introduction: Primary lymphoma of the thyroid (PTL) is a rare cause of malignancy, accounting for 5% of thyroid malignancies, with an annual estimated incidence of 2 per 1 million. Women are more commonly affected than men (2–8:1). Patients typically present in the sixth or seventh decade of life. Most thyroid lymphomas are non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas (NHLs) of B-cell origin. Patients with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis are at greater risk for developing PTL. Treatment and...

Multicentric papillary thyroid carcinoma with concomitant rare dedifferentiation in the lymph node metastasis

Ciobotar Mihaela , Teusan Teodora , Preda Cristina , Ciobanu Delia , Piciu Doina , Leustean Letitia

Introduction: Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is a differentiated thyroid carcinoma accounting for approximately 80% of all thyroid malignancies; in contrast only 1–2% of thyroid cancers are anaplastic. While the transformation of papillary thyroid carcinoma to the more aggressive anaplastic carcinoma represents a well known occurrence, the transformation of metastatic PTC in a distant location is an uncommon finding, but new insights from the BRAF(V600E) mutat...

Transient elevation of CA 19-9 due to cessation of levothyroxine in a patient with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis

Koca Arzu Or , Altay Mustafa

Serum CA 19-9 (carbohydrate antigen 19-9) is a tumor marker of monosialoganglioside structure. Its level is frequently measured for screening purposes in daily practice by physicians, while its main use is in the study of tumor recurrence and follow-up of recurrences. Although significant elevations in CA 19-9 levels cause suspicion of malignancy, an underlying malignant disease may not always be determined and benign pathologies may also be seen. A 45-year-old female patient ...

An uncommon debut of graves disease with bilateral gynecomastia: case report

Dragan Elena , Mogos Iustina Cosmina

Gynecomastia is an uncommon clinical manifestation of hyperthyroidism, due to an imbalance between sexual hormones caused by thyroid hormones excess. Recognition of such unusual association is important to ensure appropriate treatment and to avoid unnecessary investigation. In hyperthyroidism, increased serum levels of SHBG binds testosterone with greater affinity than estradiol, resulting in relatively higher free estradiol compared with free testosterone levels and thereby c...

Thyroid storm, a rare but life-threatening appearance of hyperthyroidism

Lekbello Megi , Hoxha Violeta , Husi Gerond , Fureraj Thanas , Duva Ermira , Ylli Agron

Thyrotoxicosis is characterised by the excess of thyroid hormones into blood. The most extreme appearance of it, is thyroid storm which is presented as an acute, severe, life-threatening, hypermetabolic state caused by the added quantities of thyroid hormones, causing adrenergic hyperactivity and abnormal periphery response of thyroid hormones. The incidence of thyroid storm is evaluated at 0.2/100000 in year. The mortality of untreated thyroid storm varies from 80–100% w...
