Coexistence of chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis is associated with lower recurrence rates in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma
TLDR
The influence of coexistent chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis on prognosis in papillary thyroid carcinoma patients remains controversial and the association of co existed CLT with clinicopathological parameters is evaluated.
The outcomes of first reoperation for locoregionally recurrent/persistent papillary thyroid carcinoma in patients who initially underwent total thyroidectomy and remnant ablation.

TLDR
There was a significant positive correlation between the numbers of resected malignant lymph nodes and the reduction in stimulated thyroglobulin level after reoperation, suggesting surgery is an effective option for managing locally recurrent/persistent PTC.
Concurrent occurrence of medullary thyroid carcinoma and papillary thyroid carcinoma in the same thyroid should be considered as coincidental
TLDR
The prevalence and characteristics of patients with concurrent MTC and PTC are evaluated and it is found that MTC patients are more likely to have PTC than other thyroid cancers.
Empiric high-dose 131-iodine therapy lacks efficacy for treated papillary thyroid cancer patients with detectable serum thyroglobulin, but negative cervical sonography and 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose

TLDR
Empirical RAI therapy and posttreatment WBS were not useful diagnostically or therapeutically in patients with positive serum stimulated Tg if such patients had negative USG and negative FDG-PET findings after initial treatment of PTC.
Metformin Is Associated with a Favorable Outcome in Diabetic Patients with Cervical Lymph Node Metastasis of Differentiated Thyroid Cancer
TLDR
Type 2 diabetes is known to increase the risk and progression of certain types of cancer, and metformin treatment is associated with low recurrence in diabetic patients with cervical LN metastasis of DTC.
Postoperative Findings of the Cytological Diagnosis of Follicular Neoplasm or Hürthle Cell Neoplasm and the Risk of Malignancy
TLDR
About half of the patients with FN or HN on FNA cytology were diagnosed as having thyroid cancer after surgery, and the malignancy rate for the cytologic diagnosis of HN was similar to that for FN.
Change of serum antithyroglobulin antibody levels is useful for prediction of clinical recurrence in thyroglobulin-negative patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma.
TLDR
Serum TgAb levels measured at 6-12 months after remnant ablation could predict recurrence in patients with undetectable thyroglobulin values, and a change in T gAb concentration during the early postoperative period may be a prognostic indicator of recurrence.
Long-term clinical outcome of differentiated thyroid cancer patients with undetectable stimulated thyroglobulin level one year after initial treatment.

TLDR
Although repeated sTg measurement can be helpful to predict recurrence, it could not recommend it for surveillance in patients with BR due to its very low yield.
Adjuvant radioactive therapy after reoperation for locoregionally recurrent papillary thyroid cancer in patients who initially underwent total thyroidectomy and high-dose remnant ablation.

TLDR
In patients who still have elevated sTg after reoperation for locally recurrent/persistent PTC, adjuvant RAI therapy compared with no additional RAi therapy resulted in no significant differences in the subsequent sTG changes or the recurrence-free survival.
[Thirteen cases of intrahepatic biliary cystadenoma and cystadenocarcinoma: a single center experience].
TLDR
The possibility of biliary cystic neoplasm should be suspected when an intrahepatic cystic lesion with multiseptation or solid portion is noted on imaging study and complete excision for definite diagnosis and treatment need to be performed.
