management of de quervain thyroiditis

Robert Krysiak, Karolina Kowalcze, Bogusław Okopień
Thyrotoxicosis is a pathological syndrome in which tissue is exposed to excessive amounts of circulating thyroid hormones. Including its subclinical form, it is considered as one of the most frequent endocrine disorders in the general population. If not detected in a timely fashion, thyrotoxicosis can have serious health consequences. The most common forms of thyrotoxicosis include diffuse toxic goiter (Graves' disease), toxic multinodular goiter (Plummer's disease), and toxic adenoma (Goetsch's disease). The significant progress in the fields of hormonal assessment, imaging procedures and molecular biology made in recent years has brought about great improvement in the identification, differentiation and treatment of many other disorders associated with thyrotoxicosis...

de Quervain thyroiditis, also known as subacute thyroiditis, is a self-limited inflammatory disease of the thyroid gland. It is extremely rare in children. The hallmarks for diagnosis are painful thyroid enlargement, elevated inflammatory markers, and decreased uptake of the thyroid gland on thyroid scintigraphy. Viral infection has been proposed to be associated with de Quervain thyroiditis. Coxsackie virus has been reported to be one of the viruses associated with the disease. To our knowledge, childhood de Quervain thyroiditis associated with hand-foot-mouth disease caused by coxsackie infection has never been reported...

BACKGROUND: Two main forms of amiodarone- induced thyrotoxicosis (AIT) exist: type 1 AIT is a condition of true hyperthyroidism developing in patients with pre-existing thyroid disorders, and usually requires thyroid ablative treatment. On the other hand, type 2 AIT is a form of destructive thyroiditis occurring in normal thyroids, the management of which usually consists in glucocorticoid treatment. AIM: To assess the long-term outcome of thyroid function in a prospective study of type 2 AIT patients, as compared to patients with De Quervain's subacute thyroiditis (SAT)...

Subacute thyroiditis (SAT), also called de Quervain thyroiditis or granulomatous thyroiditis, is a self-limiting, possibly viral, and inflammatory thyroid disorder that is usually associated with thyroid pain and systemic symptoms. This report details a case of SAT possibly associated with influenza vaccine (Vaxigrip) in a young female. The diagnosis, therapeutic management and outcome are discussed.

Fritz de Quervain was the first surgeon to describe and treat chronic stenosing tendovaginitis at the radial styloid process. The current management of this condition differs little from his initial description and as a result the condition now bears his name. He and his mentor, Nobel Prize winner Theodor Kocher, advanced the understanding and treatment of thyroid disease, especially subacute nonsuppurative thyroiditis, another condition to which his name is attached. He was a pioneer of surgical technology and author of books and articles read worldwide and is largely responsible for the introduction of iodized table salt...

BACKGROUND: Fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is a standard diagnostic procedure for adult patients with thyroid nodules. However, it is still controversial whether in pediatric patients thyroid nodules should be aspirated or excised. The aim of the study was to determine the usefulness of FNAB in clinical evaluation and follow up of children with nodular thyroid disease. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study group comprised 36 children (33 girls and 3 boys) aged from 10 to 18 years (mean age 13...

OBJECTIVE: To review a 35-year experience with management of de Quervain's thyroiditis (dQT), an uncommon inflammatory process of the thyroid gland that is usually treated medically and seldom necessitates surgical intervention. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed of medical records of patients with dQT treated surgically at a single institution between 1966 and 2000. The study group consisted of 11 women and 6 men (mean age, 50 years; range, 23 to 66)...

OBJECTIVE: To report the management and outcome of three cases of papillary carcinoma (PC) in thyroglossal duct cysts (TGCs). METHODS: We present case reports of one female and two male patients between the ages of 22 and 46 years who had TGCs. In addition, we discuss the theories about the pathogenesis of TGC carcinoma (de novo versus metastatic lesions). RESULTS: In all three patients, we found a TGC that contained a vegetating mass. Subsequent pathologic examination revealed the presence of a PC...

Thyroiditis is a group of inflammatory thyroid disorders. Patients with chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis (also referred to as Hashimoto's thyroiditis) present with hypothyroidism, goiter, or both. Measurement of serum thyroid autoantibodies and thyroglobulin confirms the diagnosis. Subacute granulomatous thyroiditis (sometimes referred to as de Quervain's disease) is a self-limited but painful disorder of the thyroid. Physical examination, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, elevated thyroglobulin level and depressed radioactive iodine uptake (RAIU) confirm the diagnosis...
