A 12-year-old girl presented with a history of cervical mass, and one week of throat discomfort and dyspnea. Five years ago, the patient was diagnosed as Hashimoto's thyroiditis and hyperthyroidism; she received antithyroid drug treatment, but the result was not satisfactory. B-ultrasonic showed that the size of thyroid gland was 8.1 cm×3.2 cm in the left and 8.2 cm×4.8 cm in the right. After iodine 131 combined with radiofrequency ablation (RFA) treatment, throat discomfort and recumbent breathing difficulties disappeared, and B-ultrasonic showed that the size of thyroid reduced to 2...

The combination of percutaneous vertebroplasty with radiofrequency ablation (verteblation) has not shown to be an effective measure of pain management in patients with metastatic lesions of the spine. The use of this novel technique has not been previously described in metastatic disease from thyroid cancer. We would like to report our experience after treating a patient affected by a thyroid carcinoma and an osteolytic spine metastasis. The patient suffered from life-limiting pain and was successfully treated with a combination of vertebroplasty and radiofrequency ablation...

Tumourigenesis is a relatively common event in endocrine tissues. Currently, specific guidelines have been developed for common malignant endocrine tumours which also incorporate advances in molecular targeted therapies (MTT), as in thyroid cancer and gastrointestinal neuroendocrine malignancies. However, there is little information regarding the role and efficacy of MTT in the relatively rare malignant endocrine tumours mainly involving the adrenal medulla, adrenal cortex, pituitary and parathyroid glands...

Graves' disease is an autoimmune disorder. It is the major cause of hyperthyroidism but is rare in children. Patients are initially managed with antithyroid drugs (ATD), in the form of methimazole/carbimazole. A major disadvantage of ATD treatment is the high risk of relapse, exceeding 70% of children treated for a duration of two years, and the potential major side effects of the drug reported in exceptional cases. The major advantage of ATD treatment is that normal homeostasis of the hypothalamus-pituitary thyroid axis may be restored, with periods of drug treatment followed by freedom from medical intervention achieved in about 40 to 50% of cases after prolonged ATD treatment for several years in recent studies...

Hypoparathyroidism (HP) is a disorder characterized by low levels of PTH which lead to hypocalcemia, hyperphosphatemia, and low bone turnover. The most common cause of the disease is accidental removal of the parathyroid glands during thyroid surgery. Novel therapies for HP are needed, but testing them requires reliable animal models of acquired HP. Here, we demonstrate the generation of two mouse models of acquired HP. In the GFP-PTX model, mice with green fluorescent protein (GFP) expressed specifically in the parathyroids (PTHcre-mTmG) were created by crossing PTHcre(+) mice with Rosa-mTmG(fl/fl) mice...

Follicular carcinoma of thyroid is the second most common type of carcinoma of thyroid, and it may metastasize to bone, lung, brain, and skin. However, the initial presentation of follicular carcinoma of the thyroid as a large intrathoracic mass without any symptoms of thyroid gland enlargement and dysfunction is very rare. We hereby report a case of a 50-year-old male who presented with chief complaints of chest and low back pain. Preliminary evaluation led to the provisional diagnosis of left-sided intrathoracic mass with vertebral metastasis which was suspected to be a case of bronchogenic carcinoma with distant metastasis...

PURPOSE: Percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of thyroid nodules is an alternative to surgical resection that offers the benefits of minimal scars for the patient, lower complication rates, and shorter treatment times. Ultrasound (US) is the preferred modality for guiding these procedures. The needle is usually kept within the US scanning plane to ensure needle visibility. However, this restricts flexibility in both transducer and needle movement and renders the procedure difficult, especially for inexperienced users...
