Vaccine-Induced Subacute Thyroiditis (De Quervain's) after mRNA Vaccine against SARS-CoV-2: A Case Report and Systematic Review.

Infect Dis Rep 2022 Feb 21;14(1):142-154. Epub 2022 Feb 21.

Clinical and Research Department on Infectious Diseases, National Institute for Infectious Diseases "L. Spallanzani", Via Portuense 292, 00147 Rome, Italy.

De Quervain's thyroiditis, sometimes referred to as subacute thyroiditis (SAT), is the most common granulomatous disease of the thyroid, typically found after a viral infection in middle-aged women. The mRNA encoding for the angiotensin-converting enzyme-2 (ACE-2) receptor is expressed in follicular thyroid cells, making them a potential target for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Besides infection, SARS-CoV-2 vaccines have also been implicated in SAT pathogenesis. Read More

Modified Staged Finkelstein Test for the Identification of Intracompartmental Septum in Patients with De Quervain's Disease.

J Hand Surg Asian Pac Vol 2021 Dec;26(4):555-562

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Ilsan Paik Hospital, Inje University, Goyang, Korea.

: The intracompartmental septum isolating the extensor pollicis brevis (EPB) has been reported to affect the patient's response to nonsurgical treatment in de Quervain's disease. A simple physical test called the modified staged Finkelstein test was developed to evaluate the septum; the result of this test was compared with those of the pre-existing physical test (EPB entrapment test) and ultrasonographic (US) examination of the septum. : We retrospectively analyzed 52 patients who underwent two clinical tests, including the modified staged Finkelstein test and the EPB entrapment test, and US examination for de Quervain's disease.

Is a Steroid Injection in Both Compartments More Effective than an Injection in the Extensor Pollicis Brevis Subcompartment Alone in Patients with de Quervain Disease? A Randomized, Controlled Trial.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2022 04;480(4):762-770

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Medical Center of Chung-Ang University School of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Background: Ultrasonography (US)-guided steroid injections can improve the accuracy of injection in patients with de Quervain disease, especially in those with an intracompartmental septum. Although the main lesion of de Quervain disease in patients with a septum is a stenosing tenosynovitis of the extensor pollicis brevis (EPB), no report we know of has compared injection into the EPB subcompartment with an injection into both the abductor pollicis longus (APL) and EPB subcompartments. In this randomized trial, we compared the results of US-guided steroid injections targeting both subcompartments and the EPB subcompartment alone in patients with de Quervain disease. Read More

Management of de Quervain Tenosynovitis: A Critical Analysis Review.

JBJS Rev 2021 09 10;9(9). Epub 2021 Sep 10.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Northwell Health at North Shore University Hospital and Long Island Jewish Medical Center, New Hyde Park, New York.

»: Most cases of de Quervain tenosynovitis can be managed with nonoperative measures, and the mainstay of treatment is corticosteroid injection (CSI). The use of ultrasound may improve the accuracy of injections and can help to identify and localize injections to separate subcompartments.

»: For patients who are in the third trimester of pregnancy or breastfeeding, there is no contraindication to CSI as studies have shown that it can provide optimal symptomatic relief to the mother without impacting the baby. Read More

De Quervain Tenosynovitis: An Evaluation of the Epidemiology and Utility of Multiple Injections Using a National Database.

J Hand Surg Am 2022 03 17;47(3):284.e1-284.e6. Epub 2021 Jun 17.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation Medicine, The University of Chicago Medicine, Chicago, IL. Electronic address:

Purpose: We hypothesized that repeat injections are associated with a decreased rate of success and that the success rate of injections correlates with patient comorbidities.

Methods: Using a commercially available insurance database, patients diagnosed with De Quervain tenosynovitis were identified using International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision and Tenth Revision codes and stratified by therapeutic interventions, including therapy, injections, and surgery, as well as comorbidities. Injection failure was defined as a patient receiving a repeat injection or subsequent surgical management. Read More
