The relationship between serum calprotectin levels and disease activity in patients with subacute thyroiditis.

Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci 2021 May;25(10):3745-3751

Department of Endocrinology, Sakarya University Medicine Faculty, Sakarya, Turkey.

Objective: Increased calprotectin (S100A8/A9) levels have been demonstrated in many acute and chronic inflammatory processes. Subacute thyroiditis is an inflammatory disease of the thyroid gland.

A case of nontuberculous mycobacteria-associated thyroiditis mimicking subacute thyroiditis.

Acta Radiol Open 2021 May 31;10(5):20584601211021504. Epub 2021 May 31.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, Gil Medical Center, Gachon University College of Medicine, Incheon, Korea.

We describe a case of nontuberculous mycobacteria infection in the thyroid gland in a 54-year-old woman who had painful thyroid enlargement. Ultrasonography showed ill-defined hypoechoic lesions without increased vascularity in both upper lobes of the thyroid gland. Fine needle aspiration biopsy was performed, and pathology showed granulomatous inflammation with necrotic debris that the pathologist suspected was subacute granulomatous thyroiditis or tuberculosis of the thyroid gland.

Post-COVID-19 Fatigue: A Case of Infectious Hypothyroidism.

Cureus 2021 May 3;13(5):e14815. Epub 2021 May 3.

Internal Medicine/Nephrology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, Elmhurst Hospital Center, Elmhurst, USA.

Since the beginning of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) global pandemic, an array of different clinical sequela and comorbid conditions have been discovered to be associated with COVID-19 infection. Of these sequela, subacute thyroiditis (SAT) causing hyperthyroidism has been prominent, more commonly affecting women. However, our case details a 49-year-old male patient with no history of thyroid disease showing signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism for six months after recovery from COVID-19 infection. Read More

COVID-19-related thyroid conditions (Review).

Exp Ther Med 2021 Jul 13;22(1):756. Epub 2021 May 13.

Departament of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 'Carol Davila' University of Medicine and Pharmacy, 050474, Bucharest, Romania.

In patients who were not previously diagnosed with any thyroid conditions, the scenario of COVID-19-related anomalies of the hypothalamus-pituitary-thyroid axes may include either: A process of central thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) disturbances via virus-related hypophysitis; an atypical type of subacute thyroiditis which is connected to the virus spread or to excessive cytokine production including a destructive process with irreversible damage of the gland or low T3 (triiodothyronine) syndrome (so called non-thyroid illness syndrome) which is not specifically related to the COVID-19 infection, but which is associated with a very severe illness status. Our objective here was to briefly review thyroid changes due to the COVID-19 infection. Ongoing assessment of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic will reveal more information on coronavirus-induced thyroid conditions. Read More

Ear Nose Throat J 2021 May 11:1455613211012114. Epub 2021 May 11.

Department of Internal Medicine, 209002Bahat Hosphital, Sultangazi, İstanbul, Turkey.

Objective: As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic that occurred in the last year, it has been revealed that severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) does not only cause viral respiratory tract infection but can also affect many organs in the short or long term. In our study, we aimed to reveal that COVID-19 infection affects the endocrine system and triggers subacute thyroiditis (SAT) in the acute period.

Material And Method: In our retrospective study, the ear-nose-throat examination, internal diseases consultation (investigation of COVID-19 symptoms and polymerase chain reaction [PCR] test), routine blood tests, T3, T4, thyroid-stimulating hormone, antithyroglobulin (anti-TG), antithyroid peroxidase (anti-TPO), thyroid scintigraphy, and thyroid ultrasonography results of 5 patients who applied to the otorhinolaryngology clinic due to complaints of neck pain and odynophagia between April 2020 and February 2021 were examined.

New aspects in the pathogenesis and management of subacute thyroiditis.

Rev Endocr Metab Disord 2021 May 5. Epub 2021 May 5.

Department of Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases, Polish Mother's Memorial Hospital, Research Institute, 281/289 Rzgowska St, 93-338, Lodz, Poland.

Subacute thyroiditis (SAT) is a thyroid inflammatory disease, whose pathogenesis and determinants of the clinical course were unclear for many decades. The last few years have brought many clinically significant new data on the epidemiology, pathogenesis and management of SAT. Several human leukocyte antigen (HLA) alleles were demonstrated not only to increase the risk of SAT, but also to correlate with SAT clinical course and determine the risk of recurrence. Read More

King Edward Medical University, Lahore, 54000 Pakistan.

The multisystem effects of SARS-CoV-2 encompass the thyroid gland as well. Emerging evidence suggests that SARS-CoV-2 can act as a trigger for subacute thyroiditis (SAT). We conducted a systematic literature search using PubMed/Medline and Google Scholar to identify cases of subacute thyroiditis associated with COVID-19 and evaluated patient-level demographics, major clinical features, laboratory findings and outcomes.

Arch Endocrinol Metab 2021 Apr 12. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

Departamento de Tireoide, Sociedade Brasileira de Endocrinologia e Metabologia, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brasil.

This position statement was prepared to guide endocrinologists on the best approach to managing thyroid disorders during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. The most frequent thyroid hormonal findings in patients with COVID-19, particularly in individuals with severe disease, are similar to those present in the non-thyroidal illness syndrome and require no intervention. Subacute thyroiditis has also been reported during COVID-19 infection. Read More

Thyroid sequelae of COVID-19: a systematic review of reviews.

Rev Endocr Metab Disord 2021 06 11;22(2):485-491. Epub 2021 Apr 11.

Unit of Internal Medicine and Endocrinology, Laboratory for Endocrine Disruptors, Istituti Clinici Scientifici Maugeri IRCCS, Pavia, Italy.

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has the potential to cause multi-organ effects including endocrine disorders. The impact of COVID-19 on the thyroid gland has been described but several aspects have to be clarified. The systematic review was conceived to achieve more solid information about: 1) which thyroid disease or dysfunction should be expected in COVID-19 patients; 2) whether thyroid patients have a higher risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection; 3) whether the management has to be adapted in thyroid patient when infected.

A 33-year-old man with COVID-19 presented with subacute thyroiditis: A rare case report and literature review.

New Microbes New Infect 2021 May 22;41:100871. Epub 2021 Mar 22.

Student Research Committee, School of Medicine, Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences, Sari, Iran.

We report the first case of the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) presenting with subacute thyroiditis in Ghaemshar, Mazandaran Province, Iran. In our patient, with the initiation of corticosteroid therapy, the symptoms of subacute thyroiditis gradually disappeared with a slow increase in thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and the gradual elimination of thyrotoxicosis. This case shows that decreased TSH and persistent thyrotoxicosis may make the patient's condition worse. Read More

Department of Endocrinology and Metabolic diseases, Cardiovascular and Metabolic Unit CHU-Larrey, Toulouse, France.

The world is dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic due to the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Amongst the extra-pulmonary manifestations presented by Covid-19 patients, thyroiditis form part of the spectrum of visceral involvement linked to SARS-CoV-2. In this review, we will describe the various documented clinical forms of thyroiditis (inflammatory thyroiditis, subacute or de Quervain's thyroiditis, chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis or Hashimoto's disease, painless (silent) postpartum thyroiditis) to facilitate their diagnosis in more or less symptomatic Covid-19 patients and to provide guidance for patient treatment.
