Introduction: The risk for thyroid malignancy is higher in subjects with GravesÂ’ disease particularly papillary thyroid cancer (PTC). However, coincidence of both PTC and follicular thyroid cancer (FTC) in these subjects is rare. In this case report we present a subject with GravesÂ’ disease with a pathological diagnosis of PTC and FTC having aggravated orbitopathy following remnant ablation.Case report: A 53-year-old subject was referred to our...

Aydin Sebnem , Ozmen Nafiye Direktor , Mousa Umut , Koseoglulari Osman , Sav Hasan

Introduction: Radioactive iodine (RAI) for remnant ablation and post RAI scanning are very frequently employed modalities in differentiated thyroid cancers (DTC). Radioactive iodine is secreted into physiological secretions such as tears and urine. In this case report we present a case who received RAI for DTC with a surprising post RAI scan compatible with multiple metastases.Case report: A 53-year-old male subject underwent total thyroidectomy and ipsi...
