1 if you were the physician who initially saw the patient one year ago what would you have done

Thyroid function test

Serum TSH

T4 and T3

1. If you were the physician who initially saw the patient one year ago, what would you have done?
slide7

Patient was given L thyroxine 100 ug/tab TID

  • Possible previous diagnosis:
    • ↑TSH; ↓T3; ↓T4 = Primary Hypothyroidism
  • ThyrotoxicosisFacticia
    • Normal dose: 50-100 ug/tab OD
2. What do you think were the serum T3, T4, and TSH levels in the previous consult? What do you call this condition?
3 what is your diagnosis other considerations explain

Goiter - Any enlargement of the thyroid gland

Most nontoxic goiters are thought to result from TSH stimulation secondary to inadequate thyroid hormone synthesis

thyroid gland enlarges in order to maintain the patient in a euthyroid state.

3. What is your diagnosis? Other considerations? Explain.
4 how would you manage this patient now

Endemic goiters are treated by iodine administration.

  • Surgical resection is reserved for goiters that
    • (1) continue to increase despite T4 suppression,
    • (2) cause obstructive symptoms,
    • (3) have substernal extension,
    • (4) are suspected to be malignant or are proven malignant by FNA biopsy, and
    • (5) are cosmetically unacceptable.
  • Subtotal thyroidectomy is the treatment of choice and patients require lifelong T4 therapy to prevent recurrence.
