The inappropriate secretion of TSH by these tumors can result in hyperthyroidism [1-5], but diagnosis may be delayed because symptoms are often attributed to more common causes of thyrotoxicosis. This delay, coupled with the usually aggressive nature of these tumors, allows tumors to become large and… CONTINUE READING
