Retrospective audit: To investigate the long-term outcome of fixed dose 300 MBq of radioiodine (131-I) treatment for Autonomous Toxic Thyroid Nodule

Lal Vikram , Quinton Richard

Introduction: Radioiodine (131-I) treatment for benign thyroid disease has a 70 year history. Among the radioactive isotopes, (131-I) can be used successfully. The intention of radioiodine treatment is primarily to induce a euthyroid or hypothyroid state, but in the case of large multinodular goitres, shrinkage represents a secondary aim of therapy. The optimal method for determining iodine-131 treatment doses for Toxic Thyroid nodule is unknown, and techniques have varied fro...

Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 presented with diarrhoea, vomiting and peptic ulcers

Khan Inamullah , Shah Syed , Lal Vikram , Aggarwal Naveen

Multiple parathyroid tumors causing hyperparathyroidism are the most common manifestation of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1), displaying almost 100 percent penetrance by age 40–50 years. In most cases, it is the initial manifestation of MEN1.We report a case of young lady presented to hospital with diarrhoea and vomiting and diagnosed to have multiple peptic ulcers with severe oesophagitis. Her other biochemistry was consistent with prima...

Qualitative analysis of ultrasound reports assessing radiological descriptors of thyroid nodules – a retrospective pilot audit

Artham Satish , Mamoojee Yaasir , Jones Sue , Lal Vikram , Nag Sath

Introduction: Thyroid Ultrasound (US) is the recommended first line investigation of suspected thyroid nodules. Specific radiological features, such as micro-calcification, low echogenicity, solid consistency, heterogeneity and ill-defined margins, raise the possibility of underlying malignancy. These findings together with fine needle aspiration cytology guide the management of thyroid nodules. The aim of this audit was to evaluate the quality and adequacy of thyroid US repor...

Severe refractory hypocalcaemia associated with osteoblastic metastatic breast carcinoma

Lal Vikram , Ashwell Simon , Humphreys Alison , Nag Sath

Introduction: Hypercalcaemia is well associated with metastatic malignancy. Hypocalcaemia is an uncommon complication of osteoblastic metastases and occurs most commonly with breast and prostate carcinoma.Case: A 46-year-old woman with metastatic breast carcinoma and osteoblastic skeletal metastases treated with denosumab presented with severe symptomatic hypocalcaemia. Serum calcium was persistently low with a nadir value of 1.45 mmol/l (2.2–2.6) a...

A mediastinal mass in a patient with thyrotoxicosis-recognising the association between thymic hyperplasia and Graves’ disease

Bishop David , Lal Vikram , Fletcher Joanne , Elsaify Wael , Nag Satyajit

Introduction: There is a rare but well documented association between thymic hyperplasia and Graves’ disease particularly in young patients. It is important to recognise this as patients presenting with an anterior mediastinal mass will often undergo extensive investigations to exclude an underlying lymphoproliferative disorder.Case study: A 19-year-old female with symptomatic Graves’ thyrotoxicosis (TSH <0.01 mU/l; FT4 46.8 pmol...
