A primary differentiated carcinoma of ectopic mediastinal thyroid: report of two cases

Yamina Aribi , Samia Ould Kablia , Rosa Akrouf , Zahra Kemali

Thyroglossal ductal cyst is the most common congenital cervical pathology. Abnormalities in the embryologic development and migration of the thyroid gland can result in this ectopic thyroid tissue, which may occur in the midline in any position from the base of the tongue to the mediastinum. They are rarely seen in adults. Malignant transformation of the cyst is quite rare and is encountered mostly in adults.We retrospectively reviewed two cases of thyro...

Abderrahmane Samir Ait , Kemali Zahra , Hatri Sihem , Haffaf Elmahdi , Sobhi Nacer , Brakni Lila , Oudjit Brahim

Introduction: The improvement of the survival of diabetics is accompanied by the emergence of bone fragility which can directly affect, at various levels, the various components of the bone tissue leading to quantitative and qualitative anomalies. The effects of type 2 diabetes on bone are complex because they are associated with the sometimes associated disorders of nutrition, weight and age. Densitometric studies in this context are quite contradictory. We proposed to study ...
