Linfoma tiroideo en paciente con tiroiditis de Hashimoto. La tiroiditis de Hashimoto es un importante factor de riesgo. Directory of Open Access Journals Sweden. Seventy-seven patients with cold thyroid nodules were studied with flne-needle aspiration biopsy and suppression with thyroid hormone.

The volume of the nodule was calculated ultrasonographycally at the beginning of the study and after six months of oral therapy with thyroglobulin, at doses sufficient to maintain TSH at the low limits of the normal. Trastornos tiroideos en el embarazo. Full Text Available Fifteen euthyroid patients 14 women and 1man with solitary autonomously functioning non-toxic thyroid nodules AFTN were treated with high doses of I mean Diagnosis was made by I thyroid scan and triiodothyronine suppression test.

The size of the nodule was determined by thyroid ecography both before and after treatment. Evaluation of thyroid function was performed clinically and by T3 T4 and TSH determinations before therapy and during follow. AII patients had complete suppression of the surrounding thyroid parenchyma. Two cases of hypothyroidism were found in the first two years of follow-up. We have no explanation for this fact since extranodular thyroid tissue was suppressed and the patients were receiving oral triiodothyronine during radioidine treatment.

If complete disappearance of the nodule is considered desirable surgical removal must be performed. En dos. However, there is no consensus on the dose to be administered: fixed dose or according to the functional activity of the thyroid and its size.

The posoperative. Dos pacientes con captaciones mediastinales presentaron niveles indetectables de Tg. En el seguimiento, dos pacientes con captaciones latero-cervicales se consideraron libres de enfermedad, cuatro pacientes murieron tres debido al CDT avanzado y cinco de los restantes tienen enfermedad persistente.

La sensibilidad fue de Thyroid nodular disease is highly prevalent in the general population. Its diagnosis has increased with Doppler ultrasound, by means of which features suggestive of malignancy can be detected, such as resistance and pulsatility indices elevation.

To assess the correlation of a high resistance index and histopathological findings in patients with ultrasonographic suspicion of malignant thyroid nodules. Patients with thyroid nodules of ultrasonographic malignant characteristics were included.

Full Text Available Pathological examintion of thyroid glands obtained at 1. Thyroid nodules were found in Nodules were macroscopically evident en in 15 lacking adequate macroscopic description the diagnosis of nodularity was made histologically 57, 21 per cent of the macroscopically visible nodules were single and , 74 per cent were multiple. Other important findings included 3 cases of occult papillary carcinoma and 26 metastatic invasion of the thyroid gland, mainly from breast carcinomas , lymphomas and squamous cell tumors of the pharynx, larynx and esophagus.

Radiofrequency ablation of hepatocellular carcinoma : pros and cons. Among locoregional treatments for hepatocellular carcinoma HCC , radiofrequency ablation RFA has been accepted as the most popular alternative to curative transplantation or resection, and it shows an excellent local tumor control rate and acceptable morbidity.

The benefits of RFA have been universally validated by the practice guidelines of international societies of hepatology.

The main advantages of RFA include 1 it is minimally invasive with acceptable morbidity, 2 it enables excellent local tumor control, 3 it has promising long-term survival, and 4 it is a multimodal approach. Based on these pros, RFA will play an important role in managing the patient with early HCC smaller than 3 cm with fewer than four tumors. The main limitations of current RFA technology in hepatic ablation include 1 limitation of ablation volume, 2 technically infeasible in some tumors due to conspicuity and dangerous location, and 3 the heat-sink effect.

Many technical approaches have been introduced to overcome those limitations, including a novel guiding modality, use of artificial fluid or air, and combined treatment strategies. RFA will continue to play a role as a representative ablative modality in the management of HCC, even in the era of targeted agents. A descriptive and cross-sectional study was conducted in 50 patients of both sexes with oral squamous-cell carcinoma , treated at the stomatology department of the Specialties Polyclinic of "Saturnino Lora Torres" Provincial Teaching Clinical Surgical Hospital in Santiago de Cuba, from September to September , in order to evaluate the therapeutic results of cryosurgery in treating this disease.

Cryosurgical technique was applied in the exeresis of damaged tissues with sudden repeated freezing and spontaneous slow thawing, thus achieving an excellent healing of tissues in the possible shortest time. It was demonstrated that cryosurgery was simple, effective and easy to apply, and nontraumatic to the mucosa without risk or complication and safe for oral tissues; therefore, it prevented residual scarring. Pacenza, N. Sin embargo, aun no se ha identificado en que pacientes se obtiene un mayor beneficio.

Por lo que se puede apreciar los resultados obtenidos con el uso de la triamcinolona. Subcutaneous tumor seeding after fine-needle percutaneous biopsy for hepatocellular carcinoma is a rarely seen complication.

The authors describe a case of subcutaneous neoplastic seeding in a year-old woman with chronic hepatitis C virus complicated by hepatocellular carcinoma. Ultrasonically guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy was performed in segment II of the liver.

The neoplastic seeding developed along the needle track used to carry out the fine-needle biopsy. The subcutaneous tumor was excised, and histological examination revealed a well-differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma.

Burkitts primary thyroid lymphoma coexistence with Hashimoto's thyroiditis; Linfoma Burkitt primario tiroideo. Coexistencia con tiroiditis de Hashimoto. Higuera, A. Andujar Jaen Spain ; Vicente, J. Cordoba Spain. Th primary thyroid lymphoma is a rare neoplasm, above all in children. We present a case of a child with Burkitt's thyroid lymphoma as the only manifestation of this disease, associated to lymphocytic thyroiditis.

Clinically, it initiated as a rapidly growing goiter with compressive symptomatology. The X-ray findings are described: hypoechoic and hypodense multiple nodes that affect the right thyroid lobe and isthmus, with extraglandular extension to the vascular space and to the mediastinum. The differential diagnosis is considered with other more frequent thyroid pathologies in this age group.

Author 14 refs. Hepatocellular carcinoma : computed tomography assessment after invasive treatment;Hepatocarcinoma: Evaluacion con tomografia computada luego del tratamiento intervencionista. Objective: To show the computed tomography CT usefulness after treatment with transcatheter arterial quimioembolization and radiofrequency ablation of hepatocellular carcinoma.

Material and methods: In a period between march to april a total of 90 patient presenting nodular lesions with diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma were controlled with triphasic CT. All the lesions were treated with minimally invasive procedure. For the treatment, the patients were classified in two groups following Milan criteria.

The first group, constituted by 75 patients with nodules, was treated with quimioembolization. The second group, of 15 patients with 25 nodules, was treated with radiofrequency ablation.

In our population, a subgroup of 10 patients was treated with both methods. In these patients a new treatment after initial one was not performed. In this last group, 16 treated patients Material y metodos: En un periodo comprendido entre marzo de y abril de se controlaron con TCT 90 pacientes que presentaron lesiones nodulares y.

Carlos Durand Av. Diaz Velez Buenos Aires Argentina ; Cabrejas, M. Cordoba CP Buenos Aires Argentina ]. The administration of I to patient with Differentiated Thyroid Carcinoma CaDiT it is used inside the therapeutic outline as later step to the thyroidectomy. However, the good activity to give is of difficult determination due to factors such as, the variability in the capacity of tumoral reception of the I, distribution of the pharmaceutical, physiologic status, other associate pathologies, grade of advance of the illness, and previous treatments.

Additionally, the activity to administer is dependent of the dose of tolerance in the healthy tissues; superior dose to 2 Gy in bone marrow, its could drive to myelotoxicity. At the moment, the form more extended of administration it is the empiric prescription that considers clinical parameters and of laboratory for their determination. Presently work, the protocol of applied treatment incorporates the evaluation for internal dosimetry and biological dosimetry to estimate absorbed dose in bone marrow.


Association between metabolic syndrome and euthyroid nodular goiter: a case-control study

The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two receding years. SRJ is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and qualitative measure of the journal's impact. SNIP measures contextual citation impact by wighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field. However, to the best of our knowledge, it remains unknown whether there is a relationship between vitamin D status and prevalence or pathogenesis of euthyroid MNG. A total of 77 patients diagnosed with euthyroid MNG and 50 subjects without goiter were matched according to age, weight and BMI as control group in this case control study..


Directory of Open Access Journals Sweden. Full Text Available Among bullous diseases, pemphigus vulgaris PV is a classical variety of this type of skin disorders. To establish the real prevalence of thyroid abnormalities in such a disease, a prospective study was developed. For this reason, thyroid evaluation was performed in 15 consecutive patients who attended the Dermatology Clinic for PV and in a group of 15 healthy volunteers Control Group matched by age and gender.
