The parotid gland is rarely affected by sarcoidosis (6% of all cases). If there is initial parotitis, and other major symptoms include fever, uveitis, or facial paralysis, the condition is referred to as Heerfordt's syndrome. The case presented here describes the diagnostic work-up and differentiation of swelling of the parotid ...

Ectopic thyroid glands generally occur in the midline as a result of abnormal median migration, and their presence lateral to the midline is rare. A 12-year-old boy had a swelling in the left submandibular region that imaging techniques showed to be an ectopic thyroid gland, although no thyroid tissue was ...

We describe the clinical and pathologic features of two benign myoepitheliomas of the parotid gland. Through 1985, only 42 other cases had been reported in the literature--39 benign and three malignant. Fewer than 100 cases had been reported through 1993. Since then, two other reports have been published. But are ...

Salivary gland choristoma (heterotopic salivary gland tissue) is a rare condition that occurs at various locations within the head and neck. Diagnostic criteria and embryogenesis of this entity remain unclear. Presented herein is the first reported case of salivary gland choristoma on the anterior chest wall. Surgical treatment is recommended.

Amiodarone-induced thyrotoxicosis (AIT) is not an uncommon complication in countries with low iodine intake. Two types of AIT have been described. Type 1 is associated with an underlying disorder of the gland that becomes clinically evident because of the high intrathyroidal iodine content, which acts as a trigger for hyperthyroidism. ...

Neonatal hyperparathyroidism (NPHP) is exceedingly rare and often fatal. A neonate is presented with a serum calcium concentration of 33 mg/dL, an intrathyroid parathyroid gland, and a family history of hypocalciuric hypercalcemia (FHH). She underwent successful total parathyroidectomy. Six years later, the child is normocalcemic and developmentally normal, requiring calcium ...

In this paper we present two cases in which thyroid disorders were unexpectedly brought to view. The question we ponder is whether hidden thyroid dysfunction may be important in the cause, mechanism and manner of death, or just an incidental discovery during the post-mortem examination. A short literature review has ...

Sialoblastomas are rare perinatal epithelial salivary tumors, with only 22 reported cases in the literature. While they have been reported to occur predominantly in the parotid gland, we present one case of sialoblastoma of submandibular gland origin. The surgical management of this patient is discussed. Histopathologic examination, including immunochemical, ultrastructural ...

Chronic sclerosing sialadenitis (also known as Küttner tumor) is a chronic inflammatory condition of the salivary glands, first described by Küttner in 1896. Clinically, the disease cannot be distinguished from a true neoplasm. The submandibular gland is affected more commonly than any other salivary gland. This report is of a ...

The expression of lactoferrin (LF), ceruloplasmin (CP) and secretory component (SC) in various thyroid diseases was investigated using an immunohistochemical method. LF is an iron-binding protein overexpressed in certain human adenocarcinomas. CP is implicated in carcinogenesis and SC is part of the local immune defense system. Sections of 15 follicular ...

We report a case of an unpigmented papillary carcinoma arising in a black thyroid induced by minocycline. Black thyroid syndrome is an unusual pigmented change seen almost exclusively in patients on minocycline, apparently resulting from an oxidative interaction between thyroid peroxidase and the drug. Twenty-six cases have previously been reported ...

We describe three cases of florid endocervical glandular hyperplasia with intestinal and pyloric gland metaplasia, which can be a benign mimic of adenoma malignum. In two cases, adenoma malignum was seriously considered preoperatively because of watery vaginal discharge and the results of imaging studies. The three cases shared common histopathological ...

Epithelial-myoepithelial carcinomas (EMC) are rare neoplasms of the salivary gland with an incidence of less than 1% arising predominantly in the parotid gland. Although they are thought to be of low grade malignancy, fatal courses are described. We report a case of EMC of the parotid gland in a 58-year-old ...
Pardal-de-Oliveira F - - 1999
The authors report a case of extensive osseous metastases from a clinically occult papillary carcinoma of the thyroid gland without evidence of regional lymph node metastases. Some features of the primary tumour, namely focal "tall-cell" morphology and higher nuclear grade, raise the possibility of including such a tumour into the ...

Ectopic thyroid tissue can be seen anywhere along the path of the descending glands, but it is rarely seen in the abdominal cavity. An ectopic thyroid was encountered incidentally in the pancreas of a 50-year-old woman who underwent a bilateral truncal vagotomy and pyloroplasty for a duodenal ulcer. There were ...

The aim of this work is to specify the relationship between the thyroid function and the hypothalamo-hypophyso-gonadal axis. Qualitative and quantitative repercussions of a thyroid pathology on human or animal fertility, male or female are very variable. A review of mechanisms of action is presented, illustrating: the complexity of the ...

In the majority of cases, carcinoma of the thyroid presents as a cold nodule by radioiodine and Tc-99m sodium pertechnetate scintigraphy. Whereas the presence of a hot nodule usually implies a benign entity, it does not provide complete assurance against thyroid malignancy. Presented is a rare case of metastatic pure ...
