Usually, thyroid carcinoma presents as a cold nodule on radioiodine scintigraphy. High-uptake nodules on iodine thyroid scans are associated with an exceedingly low incidence of malignancy. Only 29 cases of carcinomas appearing as hot or warm nodules have as yet been reported. From 1993 to 1999, we have observed eight similar cases (4 hot and 4 warm thyroid nodules) suggesting that thyroid carcinomas may not be as rare as usually considered in these circumstances. Four tumors were available for… CONTINUE READING
