Acute suppurative thyroiditis (AST) is an uncommon condition, in the patients with preexisting thyroid disease or immunosuppression. The most common cause of AST is bacterial, and the most common bacteria are Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Escherichia coli, and Klebsiella species. Due to various complications such as septicemia, septic thrombophlebitis, necrotizing mediastinitis, or pericarditis, prompt diagnosis and treatment are the keys to reduce mortality and morbidity. Here, we describe a case of a 40-year-old female with AST caused by Citrobacter freundii...

In immunocompromised patients, Aspergillus infections are important causes of morbidity and mortality. We describe a patient with cryoglobulinemic vasculitis who developed disseminated invasive aspergillosis with thyrotoxicosis caused by Aspergillus fumigatus. The diagnosis was based upon radiological, microbiological and pathological findings. The patient was treated successfully with voriconazole and caspofungin treatment followed by total thyroidectomy. We provide an overview of published reports on Aspergillus thyroiditis with an emphasis on therapeutic approaches...

Acute suppurative thyroiditis (AST) accompanied by an abscess is a rare clinical case. Hemodialysis patients are at risk for infections. Sepsis mortality was from 100 to 300 times higher for chronic dialysis patients than that for the general public. Thus, special care should be taken against infection in patients under hemodialysis.

The article discusses basic mistakes that can occur during ultrasound imaging of superficial lymph nodes. Ultrasound is the first imaging method used in the diseases of superficial organs and tissues, including lymph nodes. The causes of mistakes can be either dependent or independent of the performing physician. The first group of mistakes includes inappropriate interpretation of images of anatomical structures, while the latter group includes, among other things, similar ultrasound images of different pathologies...

Neck pain is a common complain, being in most cases due to non-thyroidal causes. However, a minority of patients suffer from painful thyroid diseases. Among them, sub-acute thyroiditis (SAT) is the most frequent one. Rare thyroid-related causes of neck pain include hemorrhage within a thyroid nodule as well as Riedel's thyroiditis and suppurative thyroiditis. In the last 30 years, a few cases of a painful variant of Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) have been described. Biochemical, ultrasound, and histologic features were clearly suggestive for HT in all of the published cases and definitely ruled out the diagnosis of SAT...

Pyriform sinus fistulas are rare anomalies of the branchial arches. Most of them are located on the left side. They extend from the apex of the pyriform sinus of the hypopharynx to the thyroid gland or adjacent tissues. The diagnosis is suspected in the presence of acute suppurative thyroiditis or recurrent cervical abscesses, and is confirmed by endoscopic visualization of the fistula hole. The traditional treatment consists of excision of the fistulous tract, with or without thyroid lobectomy, by cervical approach...

This paper was designed to report a rare observation of intralaryngeal aberrant goiter associated with goiter of the main thyroid tissue and chronic suppurative otitis media complicated by the polyp that causes occlusion of the auditory passage. The histomorphological investigation of the material harvested intraoperatively following rehabilitation of the purulent focus in the middle ear and the removal of the tumour from the inside of the right vestibular fold confirmed the diagnosis of colloid goiter.

Objective: To discuss the diagnosis and management for pyriform sinus fistula in children. Methods: Eight cases of pyriform sinus fistula admitted in Guangzhou Women and Children's Medical Center from May 2013 to August 2015 were retrospectively analyzed. The median age at onset was 54 months (range from 11 months to 12 years). All 8 cases presented recurrent neck infection (typical of redness, swelling, heat and pain) and 2 accompanied with acute suppurative thyroiditis. The diagnosis was confirmed by the preoperative barium esophagography combined with neck computed tomography scan (plain scan, enhancement and reconstruction)...

BACKGROUND: Branchial cleft anomalies constitute a frequently encountered and commonly non-lethal disease in otolaryngology, and result from aberrant embryonic development. The third branchial cleft fistula is one of the four known specific types of branchial cleft anomalies, and always presents as recurrent neck abscess and suppurative thyroiditis. Here, we report an unexpected death due to severe neck infection following a third branchial cleft fistula. CASE PRESENTATION: A 19-year-old man was sent to the hospital with a 1-week history of recurrent left-sided neck abscess, and was scheduled for incision and drainage of the abscess...

Piriform sinus fistula (PSF) is a rare branchial anomaly that causes repetitive acute suppurative thyroiditis or deep neck abscess. The definitive treatment of PSF is open neck surgery. However, such surgery has a cosmetic problem and a high risk of recurrence. Furthermore, identifying the fistula is difficult due to previous repetitive infections. We report a case of esophageal submucosal abscess caused by PSF treated with endoscopic mucosal incision. The patient underwent transoral video laryngoscopic surgery (TOVS), and endoscopy as well as fluoroscopy revealed complete closure of PSF without any complication...

Midline cysts of the neck are the most common congenital malformations of the neck. They arise along the thyroglossal duct. The presence of a fistula is the result of either spontaneous (suppuration) or surgical fistulisation (simple incision or incomplete excision). The cyst and/or fistula are located between the base of the tongue and the thyroid gland, predominantly adjacent to the hyoid bone. This midline site can be explained by embryological development of the thyroid gland. Treatment is surgical. Many techniques have been described, but Sistrunck procedure (described in 1920), based on embryological studies, remains the reference technique with a recurrence rate of less than 3%, provided surgery is performed correctly, comprising resection of the body of the hyoid...

Aspergillus thyroiditis is a rare disorder detected in immunocompromised patients during disseminated infections. Early management is essential to prevent high mortality. A 61-year-old allogeneic stem cell male recipient presented with painful thyroid nodular enlargement. He had low TSH and low free T4 levels. The thyroid ultrasound showed a hypoechoic nodule; biopsy indicated suppurative Aspergillus thyroiditis. He was successfully treated by amphotericin B.

Thyroid gland infection, although rare, may be a life threatening disease. Thyroid abscess, arising from acute suppurative thyroiditis (AST), is a rare clinic condition depending on widespread use of antibiotics. Infection may involve one or both lobes and abscess formation may not be apparent until late stage of the progress of illness. Thyroid left lobe is more often affected than the right one. Brucellosis, especially obvious in endemic areas, is a widely seen zoonosis around the world. Although brucella infection can affect many organs through various complications, thyroid gland infection is rare...
