131I uptake in nonlactating breast related to papillary thyroid carcinoma

Yeboles Josu Perez , Larranaga Unanue Ihintza , Etxebeste Ioana Cillero

Introduction: Radioiodine whole-body scintigraphy (WBS) has been widely used for detection of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC), based on the marked storage of iodine in functioning thyroid tissue. However, radioiodine uptake is not specific for thyroid gland. Iodine accumulation in lactating breast has been demonstrated, but it is rare in nonlactating breast.Case report: A 74-year-old-woman who underwent near-total thyroidectomy in 1988 due to a multi...

Incidentally discovered thyroid carcinomas. An experience of a centre through 18 years

Incidental thyroid carcinoma includes thyroid carcinomas detected after surgery in patients whose thyroid has been correctly studied with no data of malignancy. Lately, the widely spread use of image techniques and thorough search of thyroid nodule complains, have lead to a growing number of thyroid carcinomas. But still there are some of these incidentally discovered after thyroidectomy.We report 98 cases of thyroid carcinomas incidentally found from a ...

Is pre-ablative thyroglobulin useful as a predictor of cure in differentiated thyroid carcinoma?

Surgery followed by 131I ablative therapy (IAT) is the usual treatment for patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC). Thyroglobulin levels obtained 9–12 months after IAT under TSH stimulation (Tg2) is a very reliable marker for the presence of thyroid tissue. The value of stimulated thyroglobulin previous to ablation (Tg1) is more controversial. The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between Tg1 and Tg2.Material ...
