If a patient is developing fever on the third postoperative day of surgery. She is apparently irritable and says she is intolerant to hot weather with excessive sweating. She complains of increased appetite and loss of weight.
Examination of the palms revealed that they are moist and sweaty. There is visible diffuse enlargement of the thyroid.: The trachea is central. What is the anatomical diagnosis — by assessing the plane — deep to the deep fascia and deep to the sternomastoid? She complains of amenorrhea for the last three months. She has tachycardia. She also complains of insomnia and loss of concentration ability. On auscultation there is a systolic bruit heard in the upper pole of the thyroid.
There is no evidence of retrosternal extension. She has diarrhea in addition. On examination. In all goiters or swelling in the neck assess the following— 1. What is the functional diagnosis — Whether the patient is euthyroid. She is married and has a baby of six months old.
The cervical lymph nodes are not enlarged. She has a preference for cold weather. The carotids are felt in the normal position. What is the pathological diagnosis. Look for signs of toxicity Look for signs of malignancy Look for signs of retrosternal extension Look for position of carotid artery Look for position of trachea Look for cervical lymph nodes Look for bony swellings especially in the scalp.
Even though for neoplasms we call it malignancy and for inflammation we call it thyroiditis. What is goiter? It occupies the normal position of thyroid. Therefore when the patient swallows this muscle will contract and the thyroid and cricoid cartilage will move up. This is due to the narrowing of the thoracic inlet and when the arms are elevated this results in obstruction of great veins of the neck.
The thyroid gland is attached to the larynx 26 by means of the suspensory ligament of Berry which is nothing but a condensation Q 4. Why does the thyroid gland move up and down with deglutition?
The inferior constrictor muscle has two parts namely thyropharyngeus and cricopharyngeus and they are attached respectively to thyroid cartilage and cricoid cartilage.
It is having the shape of thyroid. How do you grade a goiter? A thyroid that is palpable but not visible when the neck is in normal position Grade 2: An enlarged thyroid that is visible with the neck in normal position Q 6: What are the signs of retrosternal extension?

In a reasonably slender person it can be felt as a smooth firm structure that moves upwards during deglutition. On percussion over the manubrium sterni there will be dullness normally this is resonant. Primary thyrotoxicosis with staring look Q 1. Why is the swelling a goiter? The points in favor of goiter are: The plane of the swelling is deep to deep fascia and deep to sternocleidomastoid the deep fascia of the neck is stretched by extending the neck and see whether the swelling is becoming less prominent or not.
The swelling moves up and down with deglutition. Radiological assessment. Palpation of trachea this will be difficult in case of large goiter 2. What are the signs of malignancy in a goiter? Signs of malignancy in a goiter 1. The 27 symptoms of toxicity are: Q 11 What is plunging goiter?
In this condition the whole of the enlarged thyroid lies in the superior mediastinum and there is no palpable thyroid gland in the neck. When there is infiltration of the carotid by tumor the carotid pulse on that side will be absent. Toxic Goiter Q 7. Auscultation to detect the position of trachea 3. This is also called the Delphian lymph node. Regional lymph nodes the first lymph node to be involved in carcinoma is called Delphic lymph node which is nothing but prelaryngeal lymph node.
In which position you normally palpate a patient with thyroid? The examiner stands behind the patient and will do the palpation. Where will you auscultate for thyroid bruit? The usual position to look for thyroid bruit is at the upper pole where the superior thyroid artery enters the thyroid gland. In goiter the carotid artery may be pushed posteriorly by the enlarging thyroid and this is called displacement. Carcinoma of the thyroid 2.
Hoarseness of voice 8. What are your points in favor of toxicity in this patient? The toxicity is diagnosed on the basis of symptoms and signs in this patient. Fixity of the thyroid the lateral mobility becomes restricted before there is noticeable movement on deglutition 4.
Retrosternal goiters 3. What are the conditions in which you get narrowing of the trachea? Narrowing of trachea is found in 1. Slight compression on the lateral lobes of thyroid produces stridor.
How will you assess the position of trachea? The position of trachea can be assessed by: Distant metastasis pulsatile. When the intrathoracic pressure rises as in coughing. Stridor due to tracheal obstruction 9. Hard consistency unripe apple 3. Rapidly enlarging thyroid 2. If this test is positive it signifies that the patient has an obstructed trachea. The other eye signs are — a. Increased intraocular tension c. Severe muscular weakness resembling myasthenia gravis occurs occasionally.
Tremor of the outstretched hands fine. Muscle paralysis Ophthalmoplegia — evidenced by double vision. The gland is vascular as evidenced by bruit 3. Severe exophthalmos — Intraorbital edema is super added to the increased deposition of intra orbital fat.
Extra systoles. Lid retraction — this sign is caused by over activity of involuntary smooth muscle part of the levator palpebrae superioris muscle. Tachycardia 6. What are the eye signs of thyrotoxicosis? Eye signs 1. Intraorbital congestion — watering of eyes. Exophthalmos — here both the eyelids are moved away from center with sclera visible below or all around. Warm and moist hands 5. Signs of toxicity 1.
Eye signs 8. Myopathy — weakness of the proximal limb muscle is commonly found. If the upper eye lid is higher than normal and the lower lid is in correct position. Here the eyeball is pushed forwards by increase in retroorbital fat. It comprises of. Ectopic functioning thyroid tissue 3. It is usually symmetrical. Thyrotoxicosis need not be due to hyperthyroidism. What is the difference between thyrotoxicosis and hyperthyroidism? Thyrotoxicosis refers to the biochemical and physiological manifestations of excessive thyroid hormone.
Trophoblastic tumors 7. In short in hyperthyroidism the pathology is in the thyroid gland itself. Toxic Goiter muscles of elevation and abduction namely. Silent thyroiditis 4. Hyperthyroidism Toxicosis without hyperthyroidism 1. The causes for hyperthyroidism and toxicosis without hyperthyroidism are shown below. What is pretibial myxedema? Postpartum thyroiditis 8. Toxic nodular goiter 3. Struma ovarii 5. Graves disease 2.
Metastatic follicular carcinoma functioning 6. In other conditions like struma ovarii. Chemosis Q In severe cases the skin of the whole leg below knee is involved. Toxic adenoma 4. In thyroiditis. The earliest stage is a shiny red plaque of thickened skin with coarse hair. Hyperthyroidism is a term reserved for disorders that result in the over production of hormone by the thyroid gland. What are the three most important clinical types of toxicity? Clinical types of thyrotoxicosis 1. Enlargement of goiter is diffuse.
Primary Secondary 1. T4 and TSH. How will you confirm your diagnosis 30 of toxicity? What are the other investigations required?
More than 1: T 4 are more significant and meaningful. The total T3 and T4 hormone level will vary depending upon the amount of thyroid binding globulin TBG. This acts like TSH agonist. What are the precipitating factors for primary thyrotoxicosis? Remember 3. It is due to abnormal thyroid stimulating antibodies TSAb Can be managed by.
This is directed to the thyroid stimulating hormone receptors TSHR. What are the differences between primary thyrotoxicosis and secondary thyrotoxicosis? Confirmation by: No pre-existing goiter Usually younger women The entire gland is overactive 9. What is the isotope of choice for diagnostic scanning of the thyroid? It can identify hypofunctioning nodule cold. The radioactive iodine uptake RAIU is increased in hyperthyroidism where as toxicosis due to extra. What is the half life of the various radioisotopes used in thyroid?
It is cheap and the radiation is less than radioiodine. What is the problem with Technetium scanning? Carcinoma concentrates technetium and therefore a hot nodule need not necessarily be benign. Secondary and Toxic Nodules. Other indications for isotope scan are: What is the role of isotope scanning in thyroid? Cold nodule in Graves is likely to be malignant. To differentiate hyperthyroid thyrotoxicosis from nonhyperthyroid thyrotoxicosis. Twenty minutes after intravenous injection of 99mTc.
Tc99 6 hours IV Gamma rays Commonly used for diagnostic scanning of thyroid thyroidism from toxicosis due to other causes. Toxic nodule Q What are the toxic situations where there is decreased uptake of isotope in thyroid gland?
Clinical Surgery Pearls Q Secondary and Toxic Nodule? Why technetium is preferred over radioiodine for diagnostic scanning? It gives small amount of radiation and you get the image within minutes. What will be the appearance in scintigraphy in Primary. This is suggestive of malignancy. Primary toxicosis 32 Low uptake is seen in: What is discordant scan?
A nodule which is warm on technetium scanning and cold on radioiodine scanning is called discordant scan. Secondary toxicosis Fig. Radioiodine therapy 3. What is the normal free T3 and T4 value? Free T3. How you will manage thyrotoxicosis? In primary thyrotoxicosis we have 3 options. What are the conditions in which the TBG levels are decreased? High androgens. Toxic Goiter Q What are the features of toxic adenoma? Sometimes the thyrotoxicosis may be associated with a papillary carcinoma of the thyroid.
It is better to do after controlling toxicosis because of the increased vascularity of the gland. What is the problem with the measurement of free T3 and T4? The method usually used is radioimmunoassay and it is costly. Surgery What is subclinical hyperthyroidism? The concentrations of TBG are increased in pregnancy. Antithyroid drugs 2.
Is there any role for FNAC in thyrotoxicosis? What is T3 Thyrotoxicosis? T3 alone is raised and TSH is decreased in this condition. What is Apethetic hyperthyroidism masked? What will be the choice of therapeutic agent in thyrotoxicosis?
What is the dose of Propylthiouracil? We have some broad guidelines. Beta blockers c. Blockage of organic binding and oxidation of iodine b. Age over 25 yrs — Radioiodine therapy when development is complete Under 25 yrs — Surgery for large goiter — Antithyroid drugs for the small goiter Toxic Nodular Goiter usually will not respond very well to radioiodine and antithyroid drugs.

Decreases the vascularity of the gland b. May induced hyperparathyroidism Q Theoretical possibility of genetic damage. Prevents the release of hormone from the gland — Thyroid constipation. Mild anterior neck pain g. What are the indications for radioiodine therapy? Thyroidectomy performed immediately after control of thyrotoxicosis is associated with risk of thyroid crisis and it is preferable to wait approximately two months until after a patient is euthyroid.
Where applicable, genetic analysis of the benign lesions which in breast cancer is becoming part of personalised medicine has been included. The book includes detailed analysis of the main models such as the Gail Model used to assess the subsequent risk of breast cancer in individuals.
The current trend in the management of all cancers is preventative. Screening mammography detects early curable cancers as well as indeterminate lesions. These indeterminate mammographic lesions are invariably pathologically benign.
The author collated important benign lesions and based on peer-reviewed publications documented the relative risk of subsequent cancer to allow the patient and the clinician to institute preventative measures where possible. This book therefore will be an essential part of multidisciplinary management of patients with symptomatic and screen-detected benign breast lesions.
Our first edition was considered to be an important contribution to the critical care literature and received excellent reviews from Critical Care Medicine, Chest, and Anesthesiology.
In the second edition, the basic organization of the book remains unchanged, being composed of 60 carefully selected chapters divided into 11 sections.
The book begins with general topics in primary intensive care, such as airway management and vascular cannulation, followed by categories based on medical and surgical subspecialties. While the chapters discuss definitions, pathophysiology, clinical course, complications, and prognosis, the primary emphasis is devoted to patient management. The contents of the current edition have been comprehensively upgraded and the chapters retained from the first edition have been thoroughly updated, revised, or rewritten.
We are extremely fortunate to have high-quality contributors, many of whom are nationally and internationally recognized researchers, speakers, and practitioners in Cri- cal Care Medicine. An important feature of this latest edition is the geographical diversity of its authors.
