During embryonic development, the abnormal migration of thyroid tissue may cause ectopic localization of the gland in the intralaryngotracheal space. This case report describes the management of a young patient with a recent diagnosis of asthma. During bronchoscopy, a large mass occupying the tracheal lumen was discovered. After tracheotomy to protect the airway, an incisional biopsy was performed and revealed an intratracheal ectopic thyroid. The deep incisions through the tracheotomy to the base of the lesion allowed colloidal content to leak out of the mass until complete resolution of airway obstruction...

The feasibility and effectiveness of transoral robotic surgery (TORS) in children with tongue base masses (TBMs) were evaluated. Eight pediatric patients who were treated with TORS for TBMs between January 2010 and January 2016 at a tertiary hospital included in the study. All pathologies were congenital lesions: four were lingual thyroglossal ductus cysts (LTGDCs), one was a minor salivary gland tumor, one was a vallecular cyst, one was a bronchogenic cyst, and one was an ectopic thyroid tissue. TORS was performed successfully in all cases...

Total thyroidectomy for substernal goiter occasionally requires a sternotomy associated with a cervical incision. We sought to analyze the postoperative complications of thyroidectomy for substernal goiters in our center and more precisely the complications related to the sternotomy. All patients who underwent total thyroidectomy for substernal goiter in our center between 2007 and 2016 were reviewed retrospectively. Patients with combined cervical incision and sternotomy (ST group, n=16) were compared to those with cervical incision alone (CT group, n=54), with regard to postoperative complications...

CASE DESCRIPTION A 7-year-old castrated male Havanese was evaluated at a veterinary teaching hospital because of a 12-week history of hyperactivity, aggression, and progressive weight loss despite a healthy appetite. CLINICAL FINDINGS Tachycardia was the only remarkable finding during physical examination. Serum 3,5,3'-triiodothyronine (T3) and free T3 concentrations were markedly increased, and thyroxine (T4), free T4, and thyroid-stimulating hormone concentrations were at or decreased from the respective reference ranges...

Objective: To introduce the method of transoral coblation-assisted endoscopic minimally invasive surgery for superficial tongue base tumour. Methods: A total of 15 patients treated with transoral coblation-assisted endoscopic minimally invasive surgery from Mar. 2006 to Aug. 2016 were retrospectively reviewed. There were 9 patients with malignant tumors, 6 patients with benign neoplasms. Adjuvant postoperative radiation therapy was applied in three cases of squamous cell carcinoma, neck was performed in four cases of cancer...

Ectopic thyroid is a rare congenital embryonic anomaly. Ectopic thyroid tissue can be located anywhere during its descent, but it is found primarily at the base of the tongue and in the mediastinum. It is very rarely found in the heart. Here, we report a rare case of cardiac ectopic thyroid tissue in a 53-year-old woman who presented with chest pain. Echocardiography revealed an intracardiac mass that was removed successfully. Histopathology confirmed that the mass was thyroid tissue without malignancy.

Ectopic thyroid tissue is rare and controversial. Some experts consider it to always be metastatic thyroid carcinoma, whereas others consider it benign as long as it is restricted to few follicles without cytoarchitectural features of papillary thyroid carcinoma. Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and molecular studies have not yet been performed to further characterize this entity. We retrospectively searched our pathology files for all ectopic thyroid inclusions and reviewed clinicopathologic characteristics and concurrent thyroid pathologic findings...

Ectopic thyroid tissue is a result of abnormal embryologic development and migration of the thyroid gland. It has a prevalence of one per 100,000-300,000, and the risk of malignant transformation in ectopic thyroid tissue is rare. We present a rare case of perivesical ectopic papillary thyroid carcinoma in a 76-year-old man with a normal orthotopic thyroid gland. A total thyroidectomy was performed, and the pathology report showed normal thyroid tissue with no neoplastic involvement. The patient was treated with radioactive iodine, and a control scintigraphy was without any signs of activity...

A 43-year-old otherwise healthy woman was found to have a retroperitoneal mass during a routine medical examination and was referred for further evaluation. Abdominal CT scan showed a well-delineated, low-density area that exhibited heterogeneous contrast enhancement. The area measured about 20 mm in size and was to the left of the aorta at the level of the inferior mesenteric artery. MRI showed a mass with heterogeneous hypointensity on T1 -weighted images and heterogeneous hyperintensity on T2 -weighted images...

Ectopic thyroid tissue is a rare entity and when discovered it is typically along the pathway of embryologic migration of the thyroid. We present a case of incidental finding of ectopic thyroid tissue within mediastinum in a 61-year-old female patient with a history of total thyroidectomy for thyroiditis and nodules. The patient presented to emergency room with cough and right chest pain and underwent a chest computed tomographic angiogram (CTA) to exclude pulmonary embolism as part of chest pain workup. One right paratracheal mediastinal soft tissue nodule was visualized on the images of CTA...

INTRODUCTION: The authors report a case of left parapharyngeal ectopic goitre, in which resection was followed by postoperative Horner's syndrome, and describe the difficult management of this entity. CASE REPORT: A 25-year-old woman presented with upper oesophageal dysphagia and a well-demarcated left parapharyngeal mass displacing the great vessels laterally and posteriorly. The mass was resected via an exploratory neck incision. Histological examination of the operative specimen revealed hyperplastic thyroid parenchyma...

INTRODUCTION: Substernal goiters are characterized by the protrusion of at least 50% of the thyroid mass below the level of the thoracic inlet. Still their definition is controversial. CASE PRESENTATION: The case refers to a 44year old male who presented to our department due to swelling and a feeling of 'heaviness' of his left upper extremity for the past 6 months. CT scan revealed a massive substernal goiter extending to the great vessels. Intraoperatively, a median sternotomy was performed due to the size of the gland and the close adhesion of the isthmus and lower left thyroid lobe to the brachiocephalic vein...

Thyroid cancer is very common, but skull ectopic thyroid cancer has not been reported in 50 years of literatures in foreign countries. There are only four cases of the skull ectopic thyroid cancer reported in more than 30 years of domestic literature including the cases in this report. This paper aims to investigate the clinical characteristics and possible molecular mechanisms of this rare disease. Five keywords of "thyroid gland", "ectopic thyroid", "thyroid cancer", "ectopic thyroid cancer" and "metastatic thyroid cancer" were included and 50 years of literatures in the PubMed-MEDLINE and Wanfang database were reviewed...

OBJECTIVE: Thyroid ectopy is a rare condition resulting from abnormal embryologic development and migration of the gland. Sublingual is the most common thyroid ectopy; all other ectopic thyroid locations occur very rare. There are no reports in the literature that describe the clinical course of patients with congenital hypothyroidism due to thyroid ectopy. METHODS AND RESULTS: We present a child with congenital hypothyroidism detected on neonatal screening which had a subclinical course during follow-up...

We report a case of a mediastinal mass indenting the left lateral tracheal wall of a 35-year-old male who presented with weight loss, cough and breathlessness. Flow volume loop and thyroid function tests were normal and thyroid peroxidase antibodies were negative. Technetium scintigraphy and positron emission tomography both showed no uptake. Endobronchial ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration confirmed ectopic mediastinal thyroid tissue. Mediastinal ectopic thyroid tissue is very rare. Most patients are asymptomatic and euthyroid with positive signals on scintigraphy...

INTRODUCTION: This case presents a painful ectopic thyroid, an unusual presentation, in an atypical location. The patient's history of an ingested fish bone, her acute presentation, and inconclusive imaging, made this case a diagnostic dilemma. PRESENTATION OF CASE: 61-year-old female presented with acutely worsening history of left throat pain and dysphagia after swallowing a fish bone. CT scan showed a foreign body in the anterior wall of the cervical esophagus...
