Inflammation Of The Thyroid (Definition)

Several common forms of thyroiditis. Subacute thyroidits is from a virus. Your thyroid is tender, transient hyperthyroidism, but then resolution.

Two other forms are post partum thyroiditis and "painless" thyroiditis; transient hyper followed by ...Read more

Is focal chronic autoimmune thyroiditis an age-related disease?

Is focal chronic autoimmune thyroiditis an age-related disease?

No: Autoimmune thyroiditis can occur in young children, adolescents and adults of any age. We see it most often in children who have a family history of that condition. In many children that we have seen, it was mild but symptomatic enough that their mother recognized the condition and sought treatment. Even with mild disease in children the treatment can have profound benefits. ...Read more

Any recent news on treatment for subacute granulomatous thyroiditis?

Not sure about ques: Subacute thyroiditis (often painful) is often caused by a virus, can cause transient hyper or hypothyroidism, but usually is self-limited. It does not produce granulomas. There are rare diseases of the thyroid where a systemic disease (eg sarcoidosis) can infiltrate the gland. Your terminology is unusual. Are you seeing an endocrinologist? ...Read more

Symptomatology level of what would be the difference between acute myeloid leukemia and acute lymphoid leukemia?

Symptomatology level of what would be the difference between acute myeloid leukemia and acute lymphoid leukemia?

AML vs. ALL: The symptoms of AML and all can be quite similar since both cause anemia (low red cells) and low platelets (which causes bruising and bleeding). In addition, they both cause an increased risk of various infections. AML is more likely to cause swollen gums and lumps on the skin. All is more likely to cause neurological symptoms since it can sometimes get into the brain or spinal fluid. ...Read more

What can be cause of solitary nodule in hashimoto thyroiditis patient?

Hashimoto's nodule: Hashimotos thyroiditis involves inflammation of the thyroid. Often there can be patches of inflammation, and inflammation then leads to scarring (fibrosis). This scarring creates the appearance of nodules. The likelihood of cancer in these nodules is very low, and frequently these "nodules" do not require biopsy. ...Read more

What is the difference between acute myeloid leukemia vs acute lymphocytic leukemia?

What is the difference between acute myeloid leukemia vs acute lymphocytic leukemia?

Types of cells: White blood cells are different with different mechanisms to pretect body from infections. Acute myeloid leukemia arise from a type of white cells called myeloid series or neutophils, cut lymphoblastic leukemiaa arise from lymph type of white cells. These two types of leukemia have different treatments and the outcome or expectations are very different, none is better than the other in general. ...Read more

How is hashimoto's thyroiditis different from grave's disease?

How is hashimoto's thyroiditis different from grave's disease?

Thyroid Levels: Hashimoto's and and graves' disease are both caused by autoimmunity (where antibodies attack one's own proteins). Hashimoto's more often results in low thyroid hormone levels. Where graves' disease almost always results in high thyroid hormone levels. ...Read more

Autoimmune hypothyroidism (autoimmune thyroiditis) - how common is this disorder?

Common : It is a common autoimmune disorder and we see it a lot. It can overlap with other autoimmune disorders and is a common cause of a positive ana. It is also known as hashimotos thyroiditis. ...Read more

With subacute lymphocytic thyroiditis, is it common to have lymph node irritation during a hyper flare up?

With subacute lymphocytic thyroiditis, is it common to have lymph node irritation during a hyper flare up?

Possible: Since most thyroiditis cases are considered of autoimmune origin and the lymph nodes are the sites of immune response, it would not be unusual to find lymph enlargement although this would not be the most obvious feature. ...Read more

Help! what is acute lymphocytic leukemia in a chronic stage?

Help! what is acute lymphocytic leukemia in a chronic stage?

I believe you have: These diagnoses confused. Chronic leukemias display an elevated # of wbcs with morphologic and functional features similar to the mature cells of that lineage (lymphoid-cll vs myeloid-cml). Think of it as not turning off the spigot when the bucket is full. Acute leukemias have features of immature cells for a lineage (aml vs all). Acute leukemias can arise from chronic ones. This is blast crisis. ...Read more

Heteroneous in echotexture thyroid typical of hashimotos disease?

Could be: It is difficult to reliably sonographically differentiate hashimoto thyroiditis from other thyroid pathology. Ultrasound features can be variable depending of the severity and phase of disease. A diffusely enlarged thyroid gland with a heterogeneous echotexture is a common sonographic presentation. ...Read more

How is acute myeloid leukemia different from chronic lymphoma leukemia?

How is acute myeloid leukemia different from chronic lymphoma leukemia?

Different cell type: Leukemias typically originate when one of the white blood cell types starts multiplying out of control and preventing the normal cells from doing their job. There are many types of white blood cells and the subtype of leukemia or lymphoma or myeloma depends on which subtype is out of control. ...Read more

Can I die from hashimoto's (autoimmune thyroiditis)?

Can I die from hashimoto's (autoimmune thyroiditis)?

Yes: Worst case scenerio: if you do not take your replacement thyroid medication for a long time, you can actually go into a type of coma (myxedema coma). Patients with inadequately treated hypothyroidism can also have heart problems. Is it very important to be followed routinely and take your synthroid (thyroxine) on an empty stomach regularly. ...Read more

A friend had chronic demyelinating polyneuropathy (cidp), then got chronic lymphocytic leukemia 2 years later. Is cidp paraneoplastic syndrome sometimes?

A friend had chronic demyelinating polyneuropathy (cidp), then got chronic lymphocytic leukemia 2 years later. Is cidp paraneoplastic syndrome sometimes?

Not likely: Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculopathy (cidp) is almost always an autoimmune condition incited by some antecedent infection--c. Jejuni, ebv, cmv, or another infection. Antibodies produced against the virus/ bacteria/ pathogen cross-react with the myelin sheath on the nerve roots, first causing guillain-barre (aidp), then later cidp. It's exceedingly rare that cancer could cause this. ...Read more

Hi, I have one question, symptomatology level of what would be the difference between acute myeloid leukemia and acute lymphoid leukemia?

Acute leukemia: Acute leuekemias can have the same symptoms: bruising, bleeding, fatigue, bone pain (legs and back), fever. The difference is often detected once blood counts are evaluated. Some leuekemias can have other symptoms as well. Certain all types have increased lymph node swellings. Certain amls can have gum swelling. ...Read more
