Airway obstruction after the development of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis

A 67 year old white woman presented to her family doctor in January 2013 with a small asymptomatic thyroid swelling. Her serum thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) concentration was high (37 mIU/L; reference range 0.5-4.5) and serum free thyroxine was low (5.4 pmol/L; 10-21), consistent with a hypothyroid state. However, she had no clinical features of hypothyroidism. Ultrasonography of the neck showed diffuse hypoechoic enlargement of the thyroid gland, with no retrosternal extension. Her serum anti-thyroid peroxidase (anti-TPO) value was also high (>600 kU/L; <35 kU/L). These features were suggestive of autoimmune (Hashimoto’s) thyroiditis. She was advised to take thyroxine tablets (100 µg) daily, and after two months her neck swelling reduced in size and her serum TSH concentration normalised (1.2 mU/L).

Thyroid Anatomy

The thyroid gland is a highly vascularized organ located anteriorly in the neck, deep to the platysma, sternothyroid and sternohyoid muscles, and extending from the 5th cervical  (C5) to the 1st thoracic (T1) vertebrae.  The gland consists of two lobes (left and right) connected by a thin, median isthmus overlying the 2nd to 4th tracheal rings, typically forming an "H" or "U" shape.  Occasionally the isthmus is absent and the thyroid exists as two distinct lobes.  Embryologically, the thyroid gland develops as a thickening in the pharyngeal floor that elongates inferiorly as the thyroglossal duct, dividing into two lobes as it descends through the neck

What is the advantage of 'block and replace' regime in managing grave's disease patient?

I am now doing a thyroid surgery rotation. This morning we had a tutorial regarding management of patient with grave's disease (hyperthyroid). We were asked about what are the options that available for them. One of the participants highlighted the so called "block and replace regime" in which we are giving patient with carbimazole (block) and thyroxine (replace). The problem is, despite giving carbimazole alone, why do we need to add on thyroxine in managing hyperthyroid patient since this thyroxine might worsen the condition. Any ideas?

What is the best & safest anti-thyroid drugs to be administered during pregnancy

I went through some websites and books, and they pretty much contradict each other. Some says PTU, and the other sources recommend carbimazoles. I'll be very happy to hear answers from anyone who can solve my confusion.

Differentiating different thyroid carcinomas?

I'm a little confused about how to determine what type of thyroid cancer is present in patients. How do we differentiate between the 4 main types (pap, follic, medul, anaplastic) without using a biopsy - i.e. from blood tests, symptoms etc. Also, how commonly do these carcioma's cause hyperthyroidism?

Gastrulation Lecture

Following the implantation of the blastocyst into the endometrium of uterus, the embryo begins another important embryological process called gastrulation. Gastrulation is the formation of the three distinct germ layers - the ectoderm, the mesoderm and the endoderm. The ectoderm is the outermost layer of the developing embryo and it consists of cells that eventually give rise to the integumentary system (the outer skin, nails and hair) as well as the nervous system (central and peripheral system). The mesoderm is the middle layer of the developing embryo and it consists of cells that eventually give rise to the musculoskeletal system (bone, cartilage, skeletal muscle, cardiac muscle, smooth muscle), cardiovascular system (the heart and blood vessels), excretory system (kidneys) and reproductive system (gonads). The endoderm is the innermost layer of the developing embryo and it gives rise to the epithelial layer of the digestive tract, lungs, pancreas, bladder, liver as well as the thyroid gland, parathyroid gland and thymus.

Alcohol’s effect on thyroid functions and its connection to other conditions - 247 Recovery Helpline for Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol suppresses the thyroid functions by blunting thyrotropin-releasing hormone response. This causes a decrease of peripheral thyroid hormones during chronic alcohol consumption, as well as during withdrawal of alcohol. Studies show that the hypothalamo-pituitary axis is linked with the development and continuation of dependence of all chemical substances. (Koob, LeMoal 2001)

Screening and subsequent treatment for thyroid dysfunction before or during pregnancy to improve outcomes for mothers and their babies | Cochrane

What are the effects of different screening methods (for example screening all women versus screening only some women, or not screening women) for thyroid dysfunction before or during pregnancy on outcomes for the mother and her baby?
