Oruk G Gonca , Koruyucu Melike Bedel , Yilmaz Husnu , Pamuk Baris

Nodular thyroid disease is frequently observed in patients with acromegaly. The aim of this study is to evaluate thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer frequency in acromegalic patients. The data of 125 acromegalic (55 males and 70 females) patients followed over 10 years were evaluated retrospectively from the recorded files. Data for gender, age, duration of acromegaly, thyroid function tests, thyroid ultrasonography (US), and thyroid fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) and thy...
