Presentation Transcript


1. Subacute (de Quervain’s) Thyroiditis Lauren Galpin, MD

4. Normal Thyroid

5. Thyrotoxicosis – Signs/Symptoms Nervousness Sweating Heat intolerance Palpitations Tachycardia Fatigue/weakness Weight loss Dyspnea Increased/decreased appetite Goiter Skin changes Tremor Atrial fibrillation Splenomegaly Gynecomastia Eye pain, diplopia, eye swelling, lid lag, proptosis

6. Thyrotoxicosis - differential Graves’disease Toxic adenoma (solitary) Toxic multinodular goiter Subacute thyroiditis Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (transient hyperthyroid phase) Thyrotoxicosis factitia Postpartum Struma ovarii Metastatic thyroid carcinoma Hydatidaform mole TSH-secreting pituitary tumor Pituitary resistance to triiodothryonine and thyroxine

7. Ahmed Thallage, Tariq Al-Zahrani: Anesthetic Management of Huge Goiter with Retrosternal Extension. The Internet Journal of Anesthesiology. 2005. Volume 10 Number 1.

8. Thyroiditis – Classification

9. Subacute thyroiditis - features 5:1 female predominance Age of onset 20-60y Prodrome (myalgias, fever, pharyngitis) Seasonal variation (?correlation with enterovirus?) Fever/severe neck pain 50-60% develop thyrotoxicosis 2-9% with recurrent disease Normal thyroid function returns in 95% 5% residual hypothyroidism Usually low to absent titer of anti-TPO immunoglobulins Thyroid storm – case reports

10. Diagnostic evaluation

11. Radioactive Iodine Uptake Scans

12. Subacute thyroiditis – pathology

13. Course of disease

14. Treatment Beta blockers – for symptomatic relief tachycardia/palpitations propranolol TPO inhibitors – contraindicated in absence of overproduction Methimazole PTU carbimazole Steroids – may be useful in reducing severe pain/fever, ?shorter course? NSAIDs – for mild pain control

15. Points to take home Subacute granulomatous thyroiditis is usually self-limited disease Hyper, normo, hypothyroid phases over course of 6-9 months Treat with propranolol, +/- steroids, NSAIDs Think of this diagnosis with patients who have FUO Hyperthyroid work-up should include TSH, free T4, RAIU at minimum
