Challenges of thyroid cancer management in amiodarone treated patients: a case report

Petrulea Mirela Sanda , Piciu Doina , Georgescu Carmen

Introduction: Thyroid carcinoma (TC) is the most common endocrine malignancy. Although the overall prognosis for patients with TC is good, up to 20% of patients develop recurrent or persistent disease after conventional therapy by total thyroidectomy and radioactive iodine (RAI). Amiodarone is a highly efficient anti-arrhythmic drug with a very long half-life, so it may interfere with RAI many months after the drug withdrawal. This case report mirrors the challenges of thyroid...

Ciobotar Mihaela , Teusan Teodora , Preda Cristina , Ciobanu Delia , Piciu Doina , Leustean Letitia

Introduction: Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is a differentiated thyroid carcinoma accounting for approximately 80% of all thyroid malignancies; in contrast only 1–2% of thyroid cancers are anaplastic. While the transformation of papillary thyroid carcinoma to the more aggressive anaplastic carcinoma represents a well known occurrence, the transformation of metastatic PTC in a distant location is an uncommon finding, but new insights from the BRAF(V600E) mutat...

Vija Lavinia , Goldstein Andrei , Neamtu Daniela , Purice Mariana , Alexiu Florin , Piciu Doina , Badiu Corin

Introduction: Struma ovarii is a rare condition which elicited considerable interest because of its many unique features like its relationship to teratoma and differentiated thyroid cancer. The most common thyroid carcinomas to arise in struma ovarii are papillary and follicular.Objectives: We describe two patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma originating from malignant struma ovarii.Results: Our index patient is a 32-year...

A long standing lymph node metastasis from occult thyroid papillary carcinoma: 10 years evolution until positive diagnosis

Preda Cristina , Stanciu Roxana , Grigorovici Alexandru , Costan Victor , Vulpoi Carmen , Piciu Doina , Zbranca Eusebie

Papillary thyroid carcinoma is a slow growing tumor and is reputed to have an excellent prognosis. In 10–20% of cases, the presence of lymph node metastases led to diagnosis.Objective: To present a patient with enlarged lateral cervical masses, present for 10 years, that proved to be lymph nodes with metastatic thyroid papillary carcinoma.Case report: We report a case of an 26-year-old female patient with 10 years evolution of...

Hreniuc Ana , Gherasim Simona , Preda Cristina , Ungureanu Maria-Christina , Vulpoi Carmen , Mogos Voichita , Piciu Doina , Danila Radu , Leustean Letitia

A rare ovarian teratoma consisting mainly of thyroid tissue, Struma ovarii accounts for up to 3% of all ovarian tumors. The thyroid tissue may demonstrate the same spectrum of pathological features as in the normal thyroid including benign and malignant changes.A 46-year-old woman was referred to our clinic in July 2015 by the oncologist, with the diagnosis of struma ovarii with carcinomatous transformation (follicular variant of papillary carcinoma).</p...
