The aim of this work was to establish whether the immunohistochemical pattern for TGF-beta 1 in goiters that recur after thyroid surgery is different when compared with goiters that do not recur postoperatively. Twelve goiters, surgically removed by partial resection between 1977 and 1982, were studied. Ten years after surgery, 6 patients had recurrence of goiter or thyroid nodules (group 1); the others did not have any recurrence (group 2). The presence and location of TGF-beta 1 were… CONTINUE READING
