Specimen adequacy and diagnostic specificity of ultrasound-guided fine needle aspirations of nonpalpable thyroid nodules. - Diagnostic cytopathology
Ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (USG-FNA) is a safe, effective, and dependable test used to assess thyroid nodules. However, the size of the lesion can adversely affect the outcome of the procedure. The aim of this study was to assess specimen adequacy and diagnostic specificity in USG-FNA of thyroid nodules measuring < or = 1.5 cm. A total of 219 thyroid FNAs were performed in a one year; 26 were obtained by pathologists, 139 by clinicians, and 54 by radiologists under ultrasound guidance. Of the 54 ultrasound-guided aspirates, 19 cases (35%) were performed on nodules < or = 1.5 cm (range 0.8-1.5 cm, mean 1.3 cm). Cytologic material from these 19 cases was reviewed along with corresponding available follow-up surgical material. Standard criteria for specimen adequacy and established morphologic criteria for diagnostic specificity were assessed in each case. All 19 cases met criteria for specimen adequacy, and in 17 cases (89%) specific cytologic diagnoses were made (cellular/adenomatous nodule--2 cases, colloid nodule--10 cases, Hashimoto's thyroiditis--4 cases, and papillary cystic carcinoma--1 case). The diagnoses were confirmed by surgical follow-up in six cases including the case of papillary carcinoma. One case diagnosed as suspicious for a papillary carcinoma subsequently was found to be a follicular adenoma by histology. In one case, a diagnosis of lymphocytic thyroiditis versus intrathyroidal lymphoid tissue was made (See Table I). In majority of cases of USG-FNA of nonpalpable thyroid nodules, adequate material may be obtained for a specific cytopathologic diagnosis.2006 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
Simultaneous diffuse sclerosis variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma and diffuse toxic hyperplasia (Graves' disease). - Endocrine pathology
Diffuse sclerosis variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (DSVPTC) is an unusual malignant neoplasm that typically permeates the entire gland resulting in diffuse thyroid enlargement. In the absence of a dominant nodule, DSVPTC can be histologically deceiving because of exuberant inflammation and the scattered distribution of the microscopic tumor islands. The difficulty in diagnosing this tumor is compounded by its rarity and unusual clinical and histologic features. Herein, we describe a unique case of DSVPTC that was clinically masked by a co-existing second diffuse thyroid process--Graves' disease (GD). A subtotal thyroidectomy was performed in a 27-yr-old Caucasian female who presented with symmetrical diffuse thyromegaly with neck compressive symptoms, thyrotoxicosis, and biochemical signs of GD. Histologic examination of the thyroid gland unexpectedly revealed extensive involvement by DSVPTC in addition to the diffuse hyperplastic non-malignant thyroid follicles. This report illustrates the histologic features as well as the diagnostic challenge encountered in a rare simultaneous occurrence of DSVPTC and GD.

Solitary hepatic gastrinoma treated with laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation. - JSLS : Journal of the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons / Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons
This is a case of a solitary hepatic gastrinoma in a 65-year-old male. The patient was diagnosed with Zollinger-Ellison syndrome in 1991. He had negative radiologic and surgical explorations at that time. He was maintained on proton-pump inhibitors for the next 10 years without symptoms.A computed tomographic (CT) scan done in April 2001 demonstrated a 5-cm right hepatic lesion. Radionucleotide scanning with octreotide demonstrated intense activity in the same area in the right hepatic lobe. His serum gastrin was 317 pg/mL. He underwent laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation of the lesion.Treatment resulted in a 6-cm ablative area giving a 1-cm margin on the tumor. One- and 3-month follow-up CT scans demonstrated adequate ablation of the tumor. An octreotide scan done 3 months postoperatively did not reveal any areas of abnormal uptake.We report success with laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation as an alternative to major hepatic resection in patients with a solitary hepatic gastrinoma.
