INTRODUCTION: Hyperthyroidism is rarely associated with malignancy, but it cannot rule out thyroid cancer. Although there is published data describing this coexistence, thyroid carcinomas inside autonomously functioning nodules are uncommon. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 49-year-old woman presented with a cervical mass, unexplained weight loss and anxiousness, sweating and insomnia. On physical examination, she had a palpable left thyroid nodule. Thyroid function tests showed suppressed TSH (<0,1 uUI/mL), thyroxine 1,44 ng/dL (normal range 0,70-1,48) and triiodothyronine 4,33 pg/mL (normal range 1,71-3,71)...

BACKGROUND: Lymph node metastasis (LNM) is frequent in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) and is associated with a poor prognosis. Unlike central LNM (CLNM), there are few studies focusing on LLNM. We aimed to investigate the prevalence and the risk factors for LLNM, with its most prevalent sites. METHODS: We performed a comprehensive literature search using the PubMed and EMBASE databases for relevant studies published prior to November 2016 that examined the risk factors for LLNM...

Increasing evidence has experimentally proved the competitive endogenous RNA (ceRNA) hypothesis that long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) can affect the expression of RNA targets by competitively combining microRNA (miRNA) via miRNA response elements. However, an extensive ceRNA network of thyroid carcinoma in a large cohort has not been evaluated. We analyzed the RNAseq and miRNAseq data of 348 cases of primary papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) patients with clinical information downloaded from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) project to search for potential biomarkers or therapeutic targets...

BACKGROUND: Interference of antithyroglobulin antibodies (TgAb) with serum thyroglobulin (Tg) can occur even at detectable TgAb concentrations below the reference limit (borderline TgAb). Thus, borderline TgAb is considered positive TgAb in patients with thyroid cancer. This prospective study evaluated patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma with negative Tg and neck ultrasonography (US) after initial therapy and compared tumor persistence/recurrence and long-term Tg and TgAb behavior in those with borderline versus undetectable TgAb...

BACKGROUND: Distant metastases of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) may lack the ability to concentrate radioiodine. In such cases, positive somatostatin receptor scintigraphy might be useful in demonstrating the expression of somatostatin receptors that are potential therapeutic targets. To date, only several cerebellar metastases from PTC have been reported in the literature. PATIENT FINDINGS: We present an 82-year-old female, in whom an asymptomatic cerebellar metastasis from PTC was diagnosed by the means of Tc-99m-EDDA/HYNIC-TOC scintigraphy four years following the initial diagnosis...

Background: Ultrasonography (US) is being recognized as a traditional way of the diagnosis of various thyroid disorders, and this will help in detecting the thyroid tumors in early stage. Thyroid nodules are common and usually benign; steps to diagnose malignancy should include a careful clinical evaluation, laboratory tests, a thyroid US exam and a fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy. Methods: A total of 173 registered cases were used for analysis in this study...

Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most common thyroid malignancy involving local and distant metastasis. It is known that CXC chemokine ligand 12 (CXCL12) interacts specifically with CXC chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4) to guide the migration of PTC cells. However, the signaling pathway downstream of the CXCL12/CXCR4 axis in PTC is not fully understood. In the present study, high expression of CXCR4 was detected in 38 out of 82 PTC specimens, and the expression level of CXCR4 was significantly correlated with the stage of PTC...

This study is to investigate if any relationship exists between the telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) promoter or proto-oncogene BRAF mutation and ultrasound (US) and clinicopathological features of papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTCs). The study included 150 patients with surgically confirmed PTC from October 1994 to December 2004. According to the existence of TERT promoter or BRAF mutations, we categorized patients into three groups (no mutation, BRAF mutation alone, or TERT+BRAF mutations) and analyzed the relationships between TERT promoter or BRAF mutation and US and clinicopathological features...

Tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis inducing ligand (TRAIL) induces apoptosis in malignant cells, but not in normal cells. As papillary thyroid carcinoma cells broadly expressed TRAIL receptors (death receptor 4 and death receptor 5) on their surface, TRAIL is considered as a promising drug for treatment of papillary thyroid carcinoma. However, resistance to TRAIL still be a big obstacle to achieve a satisfactory effect for cancer therapy. Here, we found that overexpression of miR-101 was able to sensitize papillary thyroid carcinoma cells to TRAIL treatment in vitro and in vivo...
