Introduction: Chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis (LT) is a very common condition, and its coexistence with papillary thyroid carcinoma has often been reported. Analytical and echographic challenges must be kept in mind in the follow-up of patients with both these disorders.Case report:: We present the case of a woman with a history of multinodular goitre who underwent left thyroidectomy and isthmectomy at the age of 43, with the histopathological finding of...

Introduction: About 20% of fine needle aspiration biopsy of thyroid (FNA) with result of follicular tumour (FT) is malignant. Several factors have been suggested as indicators of malignancy.Objectives: To determine predictive factors of malignancy in FNA with result of FT.Methods: We evaluated retrospectively 140 clinical files of patients with cytology (ultrasound-guided or palpation) of FT. Presence of relationship between malign...

Introduction: Adrenal hematomas are a relatively rare clinical condition and its prevalence has been reported to be about 1%. Although various causes have been proposed, the ethology and pathophysiology are still not fully understood, and the symptoms range is very variable, from asymptomatic situations to haemorrhagic shock. Imaging is a challenging method to establish the diagnosis of adrenal hematomas, and in most cases, it is only possible after surgery. Surgery is routine...

Minimally and widely invasive follicular thyroid carcinomas: are there significant differences in clinical behaviour and prognosis?

Martins Diana , Ribeiro Cristina , Melo Miguel , Saraiva Joana , Martins Maria Joao , Baptista Carla , Oliveira Diana , Ventura Mara , Lages Adriana , Cunha Nelson , Catarino Diana , Fadiga Lucia , Costa Gracinda , Carrilho Francisco

Introduction: The existence of clear differences between the biological course and clinical behaviour of minimally invasive (MI) and widely invasive (WI) follicular thyroid carcinomas (FTC) is still debatable. The present study was conducted to outline the clinical differences between MI and WI-FTC and evaluate outcomes in both tumors.Methods: We conducted a retrospective cohort study involving 80 cases of FTC. The comparison between MI-FTC and WI-FTC in...

Introduction: Pheochromocytomas are adrenomedullary catecholamine-secreting tumors. These account for <0.1% of all causes of hypertension and may be related to potentially fatal hypertensive crises. Can appear as sporadic tumors or associated with familial syndromes.Malignancy occurs in 15–20% of the cases and is characterized by local invasion or distant metastasis rather than capsular invasion. Tumor recurrence has been reported with a frequen...
