Background and Objectives: Following the initial management, some patients with differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) develop a state of high thyroglobulin (Tg) and Negative Iodine Scintigraphy. The predisposing factors and outcome of this condition are unclear. In this study, our objectives were to analyze the characteristics of patients with high Tg level(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Thyroid microcarcinoma presenting as cervical lymph node metastasis is common and it is associated in most cases with the papillary variety. Diagnosis of lymph node metastases from a thyroid microcarcinoma is not always easy, because a thyroid nodule may not be palpable. MATERIAL AND METHOD In this work, the authors report two cases(More)
Hydronephrotic kidney with a differential renal function greater than 55% is defined as supranormal. The signification of this finding remains controversial.
