Thyrotoxicosis due to African herbal supplements: does iodine contamination play a role?

Van Mieghem Eugenie , Kim Bernaerts , Johan Verhelst

Introduction: In thyrotoxicosis, the clinical syndrome of excess circulating thyroid hormones, differentiation must be made between thyrotoxicosis with increased or decreased radio-iodine tracer uptake on thyroid scintigraphy. A cause of thyrotoxicosis with decreased radio-iodine uptake is iodine excess. In patients not taking any medication and without any history of recent radiological imaging studies, the confirmation of iodine excess as the cause of the thyrotoxicosis is d...

Rapid growing thyroid nodule: the good one in the bad clothes

Marchi Lucrezia De , Filette Jeroen de , Johan Verhelst

Background: Primary thyroid lymphoma (PTL) is a rare thyroid tumor that accounts for only 5% of thyroid malignancies, but is associated with higher mortality than differentiated thyroid cancer. The major risk factor for thyroid lymphoma is the presence of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) with an estimated 60-fold increased risk. The lymphocytic infiltrate in HT appears to develop into lymphoma in a minority of patients. The differential diagnosis between Hashimoto’s thyr...

The metabolic syndrome (MetS) in 2610 GH deficient (GHD) subjects before GH replacement: a KIMS (Pfizer International Metabolic Database) analysis

Verhelst Johan , Mattsson Anders F , Luger Anton , Thunander Maria , Goth Miklos , Koltowska-Haggstrom Maria , Abs Roger

Objective: To identify MetS and non-MetS in subjects with adult-onset GHD before start of GH replacement and to compare prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors.Subjects and methods: MetS was defined (IDF criteria) by the obligatory presence of increased waist circumference (WC) and presence of at least two of following components: hypertension, decreased HDL-cholesterol, increased triglycerides, diabetes mellitus. The complementary group was defined as...

The prevalence of diabetes mellitus in 9776 adult patients with childhood- and adult-onset growth hormone (GH) deficiency before GH replacement: a KIMS analysis

Abs Roger , Luger Anton , Wilton Patrick , Thunander Maria , Verhelst Johan , Goth Miklos , Koltowska-Haggstrom Maria , Mattsson Anders

Background: Untreated GH-deficiency (GHD) in adults has been suggested to be associated with an increased prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). Proposed causative factors are the tendency to overweight and the insulin resistance due to central adiposity.Patients and methods: The KIMS (Pfizer International Metabolic Database) was used to evaluate the prevalence of DM in both childhood-onset (CO; n=1977; 56% males) and in adult-onset (AO; ...
