Thyroid carcinoma is not uncommon in patients with hyperthyroidism. However, the risk of malignancy in patients with autonomously functioning nodules continues to be underestimated in clinical practice, possibly due to the belief of rare co-existence of a "hot" nodule and thyroid carcinoma. We present hereby a man with hyperthyroidism due to a thyroid toxic adenoma, who was subjected to surgery and incidentally found to have a papillary thyroid microcarcinoma on the contralateral thyroid lobe… Expand
Clinical characteristics associated with the finding of thyroid cancer originating from hot nodules in patients with hyperthyroidism: a case report and systematic review of the literature
Coexistence between thyroid cancer and hyperthyroidism is rare, and most of the nodular lesions from which a malignant tumor is documented in this group of patients correspond to cold nodules.Expand
The presence of papillary thyroid carcinoma within AFTN in patients with Marine-Lenhart syndrome is reported, which has not been reported so far. Expand
Marine-Lenhart syndrome with papillary thyroid carcinoma
The presence of papillary thyroid carcinoma within AFTN in patients with Marine-Lenhart syndrome is reported, which has not been reported so far. Expand
Malignancy risk of hyperfunctioning thyroid nodules compared with non-toxic nodules: systematic review and a meta-analysis
Odds of malignancy of hot nodules is reduced compared with non-toxic nodules; however, the incidence of malIGNancy reported in hot nodule was higher than expected, highlighting the need for further studies into the malignancies risk ofhot nodules. Expand
Graves’ Disease and Marine Lenhart Syndrome: A Rare Clinical Presentation
The results of this study show that different mechanisms are implicated in the pathogenesis of Graves’ disease and in the nodular formation of thyroid tissue with functional autonomy, and caution should be exercised in interpreting thyroid disease in Graves' disease. Expand
Correlation of Hot Nodules and Cytopathology: Nine Years at an Academic
This work has shown that the preoperatively diagnosed hot thyroid nodules are more prone to be malignant than other types of nodules examined, and the need to select patients suitable for surgery for thyroid cancer diagnosis and treatment is still a matter of debate. Expand


Thyroid carcinoma in an autonomously hyperfunctioning thyroid nodule
The presence of carcinoma within an autonomous hyperactive thyroid in a patient with hyperthyroidism has been reported only rarely, and to the authors' knowledge such a case has never been reported in Great Britain. Expand
Hyperthyroidism, hyperfunctioning thyroid nodule, and thyroid cancer in a young female: a rare and unusual coexistence.
Thyroid ultrasonography should be integrated in the diagnostic workup in patients presenting with Graves' disease, especially in those presenting with palpable nodules, and fine needle biopsy should not be restricted to cold nodules. Expand
A rare case of hyperfunctioning papillary carcinoma of the thyroid gland
A 32-year-old man was referred to the authors' hospital for the treatment of a painless mass in the left neck, which had been detected on routine physical check-up and revealed a follicular variant papillary carcinoma of the thyroid. Expand
Multifocal hyperfunctioning thyroid carcinoma without metastases.
DNA sequencing of the thyrotropin receptor (TSH-R) gene from all nodules revealed no mutation, indicating that activation of TSH-R was unlikely in the pathophysiogenesis of hyperfunctioning thyroid carcinoma in the present case. Expand
Hyperfunctioning thyroid cancer: a five-year follow-up.
This case of a 47-year-old woman who developed symptoms of hyperthyroidism associated with a palpable thyroid nodule illustrated that, when a carcinoma occurs the prognosis seems to be very good with no evidence of metastatic dissemination during a long-term follow-up. Expand
Thyroid nodules - stepwise diagnosis and management.
An approach to thyroid nodules is presented, from the clinical or incidental finding of a nodule to the suggested treatment baselines, which are considered to be the "gold standard" in the selection of patients for surgery. Expand
Thyrotoxicosis: a rare presenting symptom of Hurthle cell carcinoma of the thyroid.
A case of Hurthle cell carcinoma of the thyroid in a woman presenting with thyrotoxicosis is reported, and the Tc-99m thyroid scan was also interesting in that the nodule was a hot or hyperfunctioning area, resulting in a rare scintigraphic finding in aRare tumor. Expand
Thyroid Carcinoma Presenting as a hot Nodule
Three cases of patients suffering from thyroid carcinoma that presented as hot nodules on TC-99m radionuclide assessment are reported, indicating hoarseness may be the presenting symptom of patientssuffering from thyroid malignancy, but is uncommon in the presence of benign thyroid disease. Expand
Papillary thyroid carcinoma in an autonomous hyperfunctioning thyroid nodule: case report and review of the literature.
BACKGROUND Whereas thyroid nodules are less common among children than among adults, the anxiety generated by the finding of a thyroid nodule is high because 20% of nodules found in children containExpand
Papillary thyroid carcinoma without metastases manifesting as an autonomously functioning thyroid nodule.
The case of a 59-year-old woman with papillary thyroid carcinoma inside of an autonomously functioning thyroid nodule, manifesting as a hot nodule on the radionuclide isotope scan is an extremely rare occurrence, suggests that the diagnosis of ahot nodule cannot always rule out thyroid carcinomas in the nodule.
