Introduction: Iodine is the key element for the synthesis of thyroid hormones and its intake modulates the physiology and physiopathology of thyroid gland. In Portugal, endemic goiter has disappeared, but some data make us consider that iodine intake, as in other European areas, is far from being sufficient. Taking into account the potential harmful effects of moderate iodine deficiency during pregnancy, when needs are increased, and the absence of recent data on iodine intake...

Background: Thyroid nodule in the pediatric age group is rare, but the rate of malignancy is much higher than adult population. Fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is an accurate test commonly used to determine whether thyroid nodules are malignant in adults. However, less is known about its diagnostic accuracy for this purpose in children.Aim: To characterize the outcomes of FNAB of nodular thyroid disease at a pediatric tertiary-care institution and t...

Mortality rate is dependent on the tumor location. It is frequently a solitary lesion located in the superficial or deep soft tissues, but they can be found in liver, lungs (normally multifocal), pleura, bones, lymph nodes and rarely in the thyroid gland. We describe a case of metastatic EHE with involvement of the thyro...
