    Autoimmune/Inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants and Thyroid Autoimmunity.
    Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2016 24;7:150. Epub 2017 Jan 24.
    Zabludowicz Center for Autoimmune Diseases, Sheba Medical Center, Tel-Aviv, Israel; Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel-Aviv University, Tel-Aviv, Israel; Laura Schwarz-Kipp Chair for Research of Autoimmune Diseases, Tel-Aviv University, Tel-Aviv, Israel.
    The autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA), presented by Shoenfeld and Agmon-Levin in 2011, is an entity that incorporates diverse autoimmune conditions induced by the exposure to various adjuvants. Adjuvants are agents that entail the capability to induce immune reactions. Adjuvants are found in many vaccines and used mainly to increase the response to vaccination in the general population.

    Lesson of the month 1: Subacute thyroiditis: a rare cause of fever of unknown origin.
    Clin Med (Lond) 2017 Feb;17(1):86-87
    Sultan Qaboos University Hospital, Al Khod, Muscat, Oman.
    Fever of unknown origin (FUO) is sometimes a diagnostic dilemma for clinicians. Endocrine causes reported in the literature include subacute thyroiditis, thyrotoxicosis, adrenal insufficiency and pheochromocytoma. Among these, subacute thyroiditis is often overlooked as it can occasionally lack typical symptoms. Read More

    Differentiating Graves' disease from subacute thyroiditis using ratio of serum free triiodothyronine to free thyroxine.
    Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2016 Sep 8;10:69-72. Epub 2016 Aug 8.
    Department of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University, Bangkok 10400, Thailand.

    Department of Nuclear Medicine and Positron Emission Tomography, Singapore General Hospital, Singapore.
    The characteristic sonographic finding of subacute thyroiditis of a heterogeneous poorly defined hypoechoic area in the thyroid gland may mimic that of thyroid malignancy. This finding needs to be interpreted in the correct clinical context to avoid an unnecessary biopsy. We describe 3 patients who underwent thyroid biopsy on the basis of suspicious sonographic findings but who subsequently had a diagnosis of subacute thyroiditis. Read More

    Indian J Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2015 Dec 15;67(4):403-6. Epub 2015 Sep 15.
    Ekopath Metropolis Lab Services Pvt. Ltd., First floor, Sikaria Building, Christian Basti, G.S. Road., Guwahati, Assam 781005 India.
    Definite clinico-cytological criterion is outlined for thyroid lesions. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) makes it easier to segregate cases of thyroiditis (Chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis/Hashimoto's thyroiditis-CLT/HT, and subacute thyroiditis-SAT) from other benign and malignant lesions of thyroid. The study was done for a period of 5½ years at a diagnostic centre in Guwahati. Read More

    IgG4-related disease: The utility of (18)F-FDG PET/CT in diagnosis and treatment.
    Hell J Nucl Med 2015 Sep-Dec;18 Suppl 1:155-9
    Department of Rheumatology, Algemeen Ziekenhuis Sint-Jan Brugge-Oostende, Ruddershove 10, B-8000 Brugge, Belgium.
    Objective: IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a systemic mass-forming fibro-inflammatory condition which can affect nearly every organ system. Its pathophysiology remains incompletely understood, but affected tissues are characterized by a lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate rich in IgG4-positive plasma cells which cause chronic inflammation, storiform fibrosis and phlebitis. These findings on histopathological specimens are considered the gold standard for the diagnosis. Read More

    Acta Med Iran 2015 Oct;53(10):659-62
    Department of Medicine, Krankenanstalt Rudolfstiftung, Vienna, Austria.
    Mitochondrial disorders (MIDs) require biochemical or genetic investigations for being diagnosed. In some cases, however, the diagnosis can be suspected upon the syndromic phenotype or upon clinical presentation and family history, as in the following case. The patient was a 74-year-old male admitted for worsening of pre-existing left-sided ptosis and ophthalmoparesis after a birthday party. Read More

    Presence of Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone Receptor Antibodies in a Patient with Subacute Thyroiditis followed by Hypothyroidism and Later Graves' Disease with Ophthalmopathy: A Case Report.
    Eur Thyroid J 2015 Sep 18;4(3):197-200. Epub 2015 Jul 18.
    Department of Endocrinology, Skåne University Hospital, Malmö, Sweden ; Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University, Lund, Sweden.
    Background: The development of Graves' disease (GD) after subacute thyroiditis (SAT) is very rare and only a limited number of cases have been reported.

    From the Departments of Radiology (A.M.d.A., S.B.G., R.G.F., A.B.N., C.V.M.), Pathology (I.A.N.), and Internal Medicine (J.A.D.P.), Hospital Clínico Universitario de Santiago de Compostela, Choupana s/n, 15706 Santiago de Compostela (A Coruña), Spain.
    Immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related disease is a relatively recently proposed clinical-pathologic entity that is characterized by fibro-inflammatory lesions rich in IgG4-positive plasma cells and, often but not always, elevated serum IgG4 concentrations. IgG4-related disease was recognized as a systemic disease in 2003, when extrapancreatic manifestations were identified in patients with autoimmune pancreatitis. Since then, the disease has been reported as affecting virtually every organ system and has been identified in the biliary tree, salivary and lacrimal glands, periorbital tissues, lungs, lymph nodes, thyroid gland, kidneys, prostate gland, testicles, breasts, and pituitary gland.

    Painless thyroiditis associated to thyroid carcinoma: role of initial ultrasonography evaluation.
    Arch Endocrinol Metab 2016 Apr 25;60(2):178-82. Epub 2015 Sep 25.
    Irmandade da Santa Casa de Misericórdia de Porto Alegre, Universidade Federal de Ciências da Saúde de Porto Alegre, Porto Alegre, RS, Brasil.
    Even though it is a rare event, most associations of thyroid carcinoma with subacute thyroiditis described in the literature are related to its granulomatous form (Quervain's thyroiditis). We present a patient with subacute lymphocytic thyroiditis (painless thyroiditis) and papillary thyroid cancer that was first suspected in an initial ultrasound evaluation. A 30-year old female patient who was referred to the emergency room due to hyperthyroidism symptoms was diagnosed with painless thyroiditis established by physical examination and laboratory findings.

    Cytojournal 2015 21;12. Epub 2015 May 21.
    Konrad Private Radiology Center, Izmit, Kocaeli, Turkey.
    Background: Subacute granulomatous thyroiditis (SGT) is an inflammatory disease that presents with different clinical and cytological characteristics.

The objective of this study is to reveal the ultrasonographic (USG) and cytological characteristics of SGT. Read More

    Prednisolone Dosing Regimen for Treatment of Subacute Thyroiditis.
    J UOEH 2015 Jun;37(2):103-10
    Department of Internal Medicine, Japan Labour Health and Welfare Organization Kyushu Rosai Hospital, Moji Medical Center, Japan.
    The rate of recurrence of subacute thyroiditis (SAT) during prednisolone (PSL) therapy is approximately 10 to 20%. However, there is little or no information on the time period to relapse following administration of a tapered dose of PSL and the factors associated with such relapse. The aim of this study was to determine the correlation between SAT recurrence and PSL tapering regimen used in the treatment of SAT. Read More

    Rapid bioassay for detection of thyroid-stimulating antibodies using cyclic adenosine monophosphate-gated calcium channel and aequorin.
    Eur Thyroid J 2015 Mar 19;4(1):14-9. Epub 2015 Feb 19.
    Department of Internal Medicine, Kuma Hospital, Kobe, Japan.
    Background: Thyroid-stimulating antibodies (TSAb) are known to be responsible for hyperthyroidism in Graves' disease (GD). The conventional methods to measure TSAb depend on cell-based assays that require cumbersome procedures and a sterilized tissue culture technique. The aim of the present study was to develop a ready-to-use cell-based assay for measuring TSAb activity without requiring sterilized conditions. Read More
