High prevalence of diffuse goiter
detected by ultrasound in children and adolescents in the relatively uncontaminated Brest region (27.
It is important to gauge the total amount of colloid in relation to the presence of any microfollicular groups because benign goiters
can show a few microfollicular groups in the presence of a large amount of colloid (from predominantly macrofollicular groups).
Thyroidectomy's effects on OSA in patients with goiter
have been previously documented in several cases studies.
1) Graves' disease and toxic nodular goiter
are the commonest causes of hyperthyroidism.
Note: While most goiters
suggest low iodine, other conditions can occasionally be at fault, such as the overactive thyroid of Graves' disease.
Radioactive iodine (I-131) has been used, primarily in Europe, to decrease thyroid volume in patients with euthyroid goiters
(40-60% volume reduction).
The prevalence of goiter
is high in the region of Turkey where the study was conducted, and could be related to the incidence of hormone-dependent neoplasms in general, Dr.
A clue that the body is not receiving enough iodine is a condition called goiter
Today we take iodized salt for granted, as do the residents of the developed countries of the world, but the World Health Organization estimates that as many as 200 million persons in underdeveloped countries are suffering from iodine deficient goiters
, with cretinism attendant in many children in these areas.
Discordant results were seen in 4 cases (3 goiters
and 1 FTC) that were negative on core but positive in the whole section.
were considered giant if they weighed at least 10 g/kg of body weight and if they had been present for at least 10 years.
3) In this review, we discuss an approach that may be adopted in the primary care setting to man age thyroid nodules and multinodular goiters
discovered among a group of Peace Corps volunteers in Africa were linked epidemiologically to the use of iodine resin filters for water disinfection (20).
In a 1991 study by Japanese researchers at the Ishizuki Thyroid Clinic, half of 17 healthy adult participants developed goiters
following three months of eating 30 grams of soybeans a day.
In a small percentage of the cases, these goiters
, without causing any pain or disturbance of health, go on increasing steadily in size until they reach the size of a clenched fist or even that of a muskmelon.
