Actinomycotic abscess of the thyroid gland is rare especially in childhood. In this article, we report the second pediatric case in literature, at age of 18 months. Although spread of actinomycotic infection to the thyroid gland from upper aerodigestive tract by preformed pathways such as piriform sinus fistula seems rational, ...

Evidence is presented that many people have hypothyroidism undetected by conventional laboratory thyroid-function tests, and cases are reported to support the empirical use of Armour thyroid. Clinical evaluation can identify individuals with sub-laboratory hypothyroidism who are likely to benefit from thyroid-replacement therapy. In a significant proportion of cases, treatment with ...
