Preoperative and postoperative evaluation of thyroid disease in patients undergoing surgical treatment of primary hyperparathyroidism.
To evaluate the occurrence of thyroid disease in patients undergoing parathyroidectomy for primary hyperparathyroidism. In this case series, records of all patients with a diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism who underwent parathyroidectomy between January 2005 and December 2008 in our clinic were analyzed retrospectively. Preoperatively, all patients were evaluated with ultrasonography and parathyroid scintigraphy; when needed, thyroid scintigraphy and ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) were used. All patients underwent standard neck exploration. Postoperative histopathologic findings of thyroid tissue were classified as nodular/multinodular hyperplasia, Hashimoto thyroiditis, papillary thyroid carcinoma, or normal. Fifty-one women and 9 men were included. In the 60 patients, preoperative ultrasonography revealed thyroiditis (without nodules) in 13 (22%), a solitary nodule in 9 (15%) (coexistent with thyroiditis in 7 patients), multinodular goiter in 24 (40%) (coexistent with thyroiditis in 5 patients), and normal findings in 14 (23%). Rates of thyroiditis and nodular goiter were 42% and 55%, respectively. Collectively, prevalence of thyroid disease was 77%. Total thyroidectomy was performed in 27 patie...Continue Reading

Autoimmune thyroiditis is an inflammatory disease of thyroid gland due to autoimmune responses leading to lymphocytic infiltration of the gland. It is characterized by the presence of circulating thyroid antigen-specific T-cells and thyroid autoantibodies. Discover the latest research on autoimmune thyroiditis here.
