BACKGROUND: The malignancy risk of a cytology diagnosis may depend on the ultrasonography (US) patterns of thyroid nodules, and management should be determined by the combined malignancy risk of fine-needle aspiration (FNA) cytology and US patterns. This study was performed to develop a clinically applicable cytology-ultrasonography (CU) scoring system for malignancy risk stratification based on FNA cytology and US patterns, according to the Korean-Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System (K-TIRADS)...

BACKGROUND: In most of the world, diagnostic surgery remains as the most frequent approach for indeterminate thyroid cytology. Although several molecular tests are available for central-lab testing in the US, there are no available kits for local laboratory testing. The aim of this study was to develop a prototype in-vitro diagnostic (IVD) gene classifier for diagnosis of indeterminate thyroid cytology. METHODS: In a first stage, the expression of 18 genes was determined by qPCR in a broad histopathological spectrum of fresh tissue biopsies (114)...

BACKGROUND: Despite improvements in the surgical and medical treatment of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), subsets of patients suffer from structural recurrence after initial treatment. This study evaluated the timing and patterns of recurrence in completely resected PTC patients. METHODS: A retrospective review of a prospectively maintained thyroid cancer database was performed. The timing and patterns of recurrence were reviewed in 2250 patients with PTC >1 cm who achieved complete remission after total thyroidectomy and/or radioactive iodine treatment...

BACKGROUND: Thyroid carcinoma (TC) is rare in young children, with a sharp increase in incidence among adolescents and young adults (AYA), between 15 and 29 years of age. The incidence of TC is increasing worldwide. Limited prospective population-based data are available to describe diagnostic and treatment practices in this age group. This study undertook a population-based review of TC among 0 to 29-year-old individuals in Ontario, Canada, utilizing linked administrative data to describe the demographic and care patterns over nearly two decades...

BACKGROUND: Papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) is a common malignancy diagnosed during pregnancy. However, there is little information on the behavior of PTC during pregnancy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the natural course of PTC in pregnant women. METHODS: The study included 19 patients with PTC who delayed thyroid surgery because they were diagnosed with PTC just before or during the early stages of pregnancy. Serial neck ultrasonography (US) was used to evaluate PTCs before surgical treatment and the clinical outcomes after surgery...

BACKGROUND: There is a lack of well-powered data regarding outcomes in stage IV differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) treated with postsurgical radiation. The objective of this study was to examine survival in patients with stage IV papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) and follicular thyroid carcinoma (FTC) who received radioactive iodine (RAI), external beam radiation therapy (EBRT), or neither following surgery. METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, data collected from the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB) yielded 11,832 patients with stage IV DTC who underwent primary surgical treatment between 2002 and 2012...

BACKGROUND: Papillary thyroid cancer is often described as the "good cancer" because of its treatability and relatively favorable survival rates. We sought to characterize the thoughts of papillary thyroid cancer patients as they relate to having the "good cancer." METHODS: This qualitative study included 31 papillary thyroid cancer patients enrolled in an ongoing randomized trial. We conducted semi-structured interviews with participants at the pre-operative visit and 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 6 months and 1 year after thyroidectomy...

BACKGROUND: Lenvatinib (Lenvima®) and sorafenib (Nexavar®) are the two most recently FDA-approved drugs for treating radioiodine-refractory differentiated thyroid cancer (RR-DTC). Both demonstrated superior progression-free survival over placebo in their respective phase III clinical trials. In this study, we compared the cost-effectiveness of the two treatments with placebo from a limited societal perspective. METHODS: A Markov model was developed to estimate the costs and health benefits for treatment of RR-DTC...

Reclassification of non-invasive encapsulated follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (EFV-PTC) into non-invasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP) has significant impact for patients and clinicians. It was estimated that this reclassification could potentially affect more than 45,000 patients worldwide annually (around 20% of thyroid carcinoma), who will not be labeled as having cancer. Our experience from Asian grounds indicates that NIFTP is extremely rare in local practice...

BACKGROUND: The association of changes in thyroid hormone values overtime with the incidence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) has not yet been evaluated. This study, for the first time, assessed the effect of thyroid hormone variations in the subclinical and euthyroid range on the incidence of MetS and its components over a 10 year follow-up in an adult population. METHODS: Data were analyzed from the prospective population-based Tehran Thyroid Study. Of 5786 randomly selected subjects, aged ≥20 years, after excluding subjects with MetS (1403), TSH>10 or <0...

BACKGROUND: Differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) has a good prognosis but a remaining risk of recurrence, and life-long follow-up as well as medication with levothyroxine may be necessary. The aim of this study was to clarify how thyroid-related symptoms affect health-related quality of life (HRQoL) 14-17 years after diagnosis, in Swedish DTC patients. METHODS: From the all-encompassing population-based Swedish Cancer Registry, 353 patients diagnosed with DTC during 1995-1998 were identified and invited to answer a study-specific questionnaire and the HRQoL questionnaire SF-36, 14-17 years after their diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Historical anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) outcomes have been terrible, with a median survival of only 5 months and <20% 1-year survival. Improved outcomes are now achieved with aggressive initial therapy in stages IVA and IVB disease, but patients with distant metastatic disease (stage IVC) still do poorly; improved therapies are sorely needed. Kinase inhibitors have emerged as promising agents in the therapy of advanced medullary and differentiated thyroid cancer, but there are limited data regarding use of lenvatinib in ATC...

BACKGROUND: Iodine intake is associated with various thyroid diseases and serum TSH levels. The aim of this study was to investigate iodine intake and its impact on the distribution of serum TSH levels using nationwide data from Korea, a country known to be iodine-replete. METHODS: The sixth Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (2013-2015) is a nationwide, cross-sectional survey of the Korean general population. Participants were selected using two-stage stratified cluster sampling of the population and housing census data...

BACKGROUND: Resistance to Thyroid Hormone alpha (RTHα), a disorder characterised by tissue-selective hypothyroidism and near-normal thyroid function tests due to thyroid receptor α gene mutations, is rare but probably underrecognised. We sought to correlate the clinical characteristics and response to thyroxine therapy in two adolescent RTHα patients with the properties of the <i>THRA</i> mutation, affecting both TRα1 and TRα2 proteins, they harboured. METHODS: Clinical, auxological, biochemical and physiological parameters were assessed in each patient at baseline and after thyroxine therapy...

Background Previous research has suggested an increased risk of death and cardiovascular disease in patients treated for hyperthyroidism. However, studies on this subject are heterogenous, often based on old data, or have not considered the impact that treatment for hyperthyroidism might have on cardiovascular risk. It is also unclear whether long-term prognosis differs between Graves' disease and toxic nodular goiter. Our aim was to use a very large cohort built on recent data to assess whether improvements in cardiovascular care might have changed the prognosis over time...

BACKGROUND: The clinical courses of patients with lung metastases of differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) are vary, and cancer-specific survival (CSS) could be associated with tumor burden. We evaluated the growth kinetics of lung metastases from DTC using serial chest computed tomography (CT) per RECIST and their prognostic implications. METHODS: Forty-four patients with macronodular lung metastases (≥1 cm) of DTC were included. The time intervals to disease progression of lung metastases were measured to compare CSS rates...

Atypia/follicular lesion of unknown significance (AUS/FLUS) has variable rates of malignancy. The recommended management includes active surveillance (AS), repeated fine needle aspiration (RFNA), diagnostic surgery or genetic testing for malignancy. The objective of this study was to assess the management of AUS/FLUS patients in a dedicated thyroid clinic without implementing genetic testing. This is a single institute cohort study of all patients aged 18 years and above who underwent ultrasound-guided FNA (USGFNA) thyroid biopsies between January 2009 and January 2013 and were followed until January 2016...
