This study aims to evaluate surgical approaches to the management of retrosternal goitre. Between 2004 and 2014, 35 patients (eight males; mean age 67.4 ± 10.9 years) with retrosternal goitre (mainly right-sided in 9, left-sided in 14 and bilateral in 12) underwent surgery. A palpable neck mass was found in 11 (31.4%), stridor in 10 (28.6%) and thyrotoxicosis in 4 (11.4%) cases. 4 (11.4%) patients were asymptomatic. Tracheal compression was detected radiologically in 27 (77.2%) patients with deviation in 18 (51...

We report a case of papillary carcinoma in a mediastinal ectopic thyroid diagnosed by endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA). In this case, the tumor was adjacent to the central airway; therefore, we attempted to perform EBUS-TBNA to obtain specimens for a diagnosis of papillary thyroid carcinoma. Surgical resection was conducted, and histological evaluation of the resected specimen confirmed ectopic papillary thyroid carcinoma, consistent with the histology from the EBUS-TBNA specimen...

The presence of ectopic thyroid tissue in 2 or more different sites is rare. A 12-year-old girl presented with midline anterior neck swelling in the infrahyoid region with subclinical hypothyroidism. Thyroid scanning with Tc-pertechnetate was performed, and SPECT/CT was ordered for further evaluation. Two hyperdense lesions demonstrating intense radiotracer uptake were seen in the midline at the base of the tongue and infrahyoid neck. We emphasis the role of hybrid SPECT/CT for characterization and localization of suspected ectopic thyroid tissue...

The presence of simultaneous two ectopic foci of thyroid tissue (dual ectopic thyroid) is rare, and few cases have been reported in the literature. The ectopic thyroid tissue is an extremely uncommon embryological aberration due to the alterations occurring during the embryological development with incomplete migration of thyroid precursors. Commonly ectopic thyroid tissue is a midline structures, but the lateral location is possible but very rare. Ectopic thyroid is common in women and can vary in size from a microscopic focus to a few centimeters...

Ectopic thyroid tissue (ETT) lateral to the midline is rare. Its occurrence in the carotid bifurcation is exceptional. We present a 45 years woman who consulted with a slow growing right cervical swelling. Clinical examination Ultrasonography, contrast enhanced CT and cervical MRI concluded to a paraganglioma. Intra-operatively, the tumor didn't have the characteristic aspect of a paraganglioma. Complete excision was performed. Histology concluded to an ectopic micro-vesicular thyroid adenoma.Previous literature was reviewed to summarize clinical and radiologic characteristics of such rare entity...

INTRODUCTION: Ectopic thyroid tissue can be found anywhere along the embryologic path of thyroid descent. Intralaryngo-tracheal thyroid tissue is the least common site of ectopia and can present with upper airways obstruction. Its presentation in the neonate is exceptional. CASE REPORT: We describe a term female neonate with subglottic thyroid tissue causing near-total occlusion of the larynx, which led to upper airways obstruction and neonatal death. CONCLUSION: This emphasizes the importance of considering intralaryngo-tracheal tumors as a cause of acute and otherwise unexplainable respiratory distress immediately after birth...

Papillary thyroid carcinoma frequently metastasizes to regional lymph nodes. However, cervical lymph node metastasis as a sole manifestation of occult papillary thyroid carcinoma is rarely observed. Ectopic thyroid is an uncommon condition defined as the presence of thyroid tissue at a site other than pretracheal area. Approximately 1-3% of all ectopic thyroid tissue is located in the lateral neck. This entity may represent the only functional thyroid tissue in the body. Malignant transformation of ectopic thyroid is uncommon; but even rarer is the development of papillary carcinoma on it...

Context: Thyroid dysgenesis (TD) is the leading cause of congenital hypothyroidism (CH). The etiology of TD remains unknown in about approximately 90% of cases, the most frequent form being thyroid ectopia (TE; 48-61%). Objective: To search for new candidate genes in hypothyroid children with TE. Design/Setting/Participants: We followed a cohort of 268 TD children and performed whole-exome sequencing (WES) in three children with CH with TE (CHTE) and compared them with 18 thyroid-healthy controls...

Ectopic thyroid gland is a rare condition usually presenting with neck swelling or hypothyroidism. In most cases, ectopic thyroid tissue is the only functioning thyroid tissue, but it may rarely be associated with normal thyroid gland. Thyroiditis in an ectopic thyroid gland is very rare. Here, we describe a 13-year-old girl who was initially suspected, as a having a thyroglossal cyst. Thyroid functions were suggestive of thyrotoxicosis. She was diagnosed to have simultaneous occurrence of thyroiditis in the ectopic and eutopic thyroid glands...

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...

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.
