Endocrine 2022 May 12. Epub 2022 May 12.

University of Health Sciences, Diskapi Yildirim Beyazit Training and Research Hospital, Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Ankara, Turkey.

Purpose: Nonhomogenous and ill-defined hypoechoic areas are typical ultrasonographic features of subacute thyroiditis (SAT). Evaluating a thyroid nodule accurately in this heterogeneous paranchime may be troublesome. This study aims to compare thyroid nodules, their characteristics, and European Thyroid Imaging and Reporting Data System (EU-TIRADS) categories at the time of the diagnosis and in the remission of SAT.

Subacute thyroiditis presenting as a painful suspicious thyroid nodule.

Endocrinol Diabetes Metab Case Rep 2022 Apr 1;2022. Epub 2022 Apr 1.

Department of Endocrinology, Changi General Hospital, Singapore, Singapore.

Summary: We report a case of subacute thyroiditis in a 40-year-old female who initially presented with painful thyroid nodules without clinical and biochemical evidence of hyperthyroidism. Thyroid ultrasound was done to evaluate the thyroid nodules and fine-needle aspiration (FNA) was performed in view of the suspicious features. As the FNA showed a follicular lesion of undetermined significance or atypia of undetermined significance (FLUS/AUS, Bethesda III), she was advised for surgical excision. Read More

Ann Transl Med 2022 Mar;10(6):322

Department of Endocrinology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Guangxi Medical University, Nanning, China.

Background: Both subacute thyroiditis (SAT) and Graves' disease (GD) can lead to thyrotoxicosis, but the methods to distinguish these two diseases are relatively complex. Therefore, it is necessary to find biomarkers which can quickly and efficiently identify the two kinds of thyrotoxicosis. Blood cell-derived indexes are widely used to evaluate systemic inflammation.

Association of Human Leukocyte Antigen Genotypes with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 Vaccine-Induced Subacute Thyroiditis.

Thyroid 2022 May 9. Epub 2022 May 9.

Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Department of Internal Medicine; Department of Internal Medicine; Hacettepe University School of Medicine, Ankara, Turkey.

Despite mass vaccination, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) vaccine-induced subacute thyroiditis (SAT) is rarely seen as a complication. The reason why some individuals are susceptible to developing vaccine-induced SAT is not known. SAT develops in genetically predisposed individuals who carry specific human leukocyte antigen (HLA) haplotypes. Read More

Painful subacute thyroiditis occurring after the administration of influenza vaccine and hyaluronic acid dermal filler: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2022 Mar;101(11)

Department of Biopharmaceutics and Clinical Pharmacy, School of Pharmacy, The University of Jordan, Amman, Jordan,Department of Medicine, School of Medicine, Jordan University Hospital, Amman, Jordan,Infectious Disease and Vaccine Center, The University of Jordan, Amman, Jordan.

Rationale: The occurrence of subacute thyroiditis (SAT) after vaccines or after hyaluronic acid skin fillers is very rare and might be related to genetic susceptibility. We suggest that the co-administration of both products could potentially increase the possibility of development of SAT.

Patient Concerns: A 58-year-old Caucasian healthy female initially presented with chills, myalgia, dysphagia, sore throat, dry cough, fatigue, and intermittent fever of 38. Read More

We present the case of a 38-year-old male with a history of acute chest pain associated with electrocardiographic ST-segment elevation and levels of myocardial damage markers. Few studies have evaluated chest pain and elevated troponin T during subacute thyroiditis. To the best of our knowledge, this is the reported case of myopericarditis associated with increased thyroid hormones in the bloodstream and accompanied by a significant increase in troponin T and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging findings of myopericarditis during the acute phase of subacute thyroiditis.

Review of visceral throat and chest disorders causing nonodontogenic orofacial pain.

Daniel E Myers

J Am Dent Assoc 2022 Mar 8. Epub 2022 Mar 8.

Background: The purpose of this narrative review was to show that referred orofacial pain can be the chief symptom or a prominent symptom of visceral diseases of the chest and throat, with implications for dental and medical practice.

Types Of Studies Reviewed: A search of PubMed was performed to identify dentally relevant clinical case reports and case series using the following terms: jaw pain, orofacial pain, toothache, temporomandibular disorders, otalgia, neuralgia, and neuropathicpain crossed with angina, myocardial infarction, carotid artery, esophagus, mediastinum, thyroid, heart, pericardium, aorta, lung, thymus gland, and stomach.

Results: Numerous acute, visceral disorders of the throat and chest have been reported to produce pain in the orofacial region, which may be difficult to distinguish from dental-related diseases on the basis of symptoms alone. Read More

Subacute thyroiditis with liver dysfunction following coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccination: report of two cases and a literature review.

Endocr J 2022 Mar 10. Epub 2022 Mar 10.

Clinical Research Center, Department of Medicine, International University of Health and Welfare, Tokyo 107-0052, Japan.

Subacute thyroiditis is a transient inflammatory thyroid disease characterized by neck pain, fever, and typical symptoms associated with thyrotoxicosis. The incidence of subacute thyroiditis is higher in female than in male, and susceptibility is prominent in the 30-50-year age range. The variety of case reports on subacute thyroiditis associated with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) appears to be increasing, and subacute thyroiditis following COVID-19 vaccination has recently been reported.

Associate Professor of Medicine and Endocrinology, Department of Clinical Science, College of Medicine, Princess Nourah Bint Abdulrahman University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

In this review, I aim to provide a complete overview of recent advances in knowledge regarding severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)-induced thyroid dysfunction. I discuss the findings regarding the role of SARS-CoV-2 in the development of thyroid dysfunction, including subacute thyroiditis, Graves' disease, non-thyroidal illness, thyrotoxicosis and Hashimoto's thyroiditis during and subsequent to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The thyroid gland and the entire hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid (HPT) axis may represent key targets of SARS-CoV-2. Read More

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
