Congenital hypothyroidism (CH) is the most common endocrine disorder seen in children, with a prevalence of ~1/4000 live births. Subjects are usually identified at birth by neonatal screening programs, and early diagnosis & treatment prevent the neurological and somatic effects of neonatal hypothyroidism. There are two classes of CH, either with a goiter, or with dysgenesis ranging from agenesis to hemiagenesis and to ectopic location. Goitrous CH is usually due to a defect in the thyroglobulin gene, Na/I transporter, thyroperoxidase, thyroid oxidase 2, and Pendrin.. The molecular mechanisms of thyroid dysgenesis in humans are largely unknown. So far, genes encoding thyroid transcription factors that are required for normal thyroid development in mouse, i.e. Titf1/Nkx2.1 (also known as TTF-1) Foxe1 (also known as TTF-2) and Pax8, have been found to be mutated only in a small percentage of human cases. While some cases are likely to be polygenic, twin studies have suggested that epigenetic ...
Trueba S.S., Auge J., Mattei G., Etchevers H., Martinovic J., Czernichow P., Vekemans M., Polak M., Attie-Bitach T.. Thyroid dysgenesis (TD) is responsible for most cases of congenital hypothyroidism, a condition that affects about one in 4000 newborns. Mutations in PAX8, TITF1, or FOXE1 may account for congenital hypothyroidism in patients with either isolated TD or TD with associated malformations involving kidney, lung, forebrain, and palate. Pax8, titf1, and foxe1 are expressed in the mouse thyroid bud as soon as it differentiates on the pharyngeal floor. Because the spatio-temporal expression of these genes is unknown in humans, we decided to study them at different stages of human embryonic and fetal development. PAX8 and TITF1 were first expressed in the median thyroid primordium. Interestingly, PAX8 was also expressed in the thyroglossal duct and the ultimobranchial bodies. Human FOXE1 expression was detected later than in the mouse. PAX8 was also expressed in the developing central ...

A persistent thyroglossal duct is a usually benign medical condition in which the thyroglossal duct, a structure usually only found during embryonic development, fails to atrophy. The duct persists as a midline structure forming an open connection between the back of the tongue and the thyroid gland.This opening can lead to fluid accumulation and infection, which necessitate the removal of the duct. Studies done on cadavers claim persistent thyroglossal ducts can be completely asymptomatic and found in 7% of the human adult population. However, the continued presence of the duct can often lead to complications due to infections and fluid buildup. The glands in the mucosa of the duct will continue their secretions until the fluid forms a cyst or exit the duct via the opening in the foramen cecum. Local infections, such as colds, tonsillitis, or inflammation of the lymph nodes in the area can also lead to the accumulation of fluid within the duct. Even if the cyst forms as secondary to another ...
Did you know that ultrasound can be used to evaluate the thyroid gland? Ninety percent of canine thyroid masses are carcinomas. Other differential diagnoses for a thyroid mass include lymphoma, adenoma, abscess, hematoma, lipoma, and rarely early hypothyroidism. Sometimes the mass is non-thyroid in origin such as an enlarged lymph node or mucocele.. Thyroid carcinomas tend to be large, locally invasive tumors that can metastasize to the deep, regional cervical lymph nodes as well as the lungs. Approximately fifty percent of dogs with thyroid carcinomas have metastasis at time of diagnosis.. Signalment and Clinical Signs. Affected dogs are older with a mean age of nine years. Over-represented breeds include Beagles, Boxers, and Golden Retrievers. Thyroid tumors are often not identified until they are large enough to be palpated or cause clinical signs. Unilateral thyroid gland involvement is more common than bilateral. Dogs can also develop ectopic thyroid carcinomas cranial to the larynx (base ...
BACKGROUND. Thyroid carcinomas are relatively common dogs, particularly in breeds such as Beagles, Boxers, Golden Retrievers, and Siberian Huskies. The majority of thyroid carcinomas in dogs are non-functional, with , 25% of dogs presenting with either hypothyroidism or hyperthryoidism. Thyroid carcinomas can either be unilateral (67%-75%) or bilateral (25%-33%), and they can either be non-invasive or invasive. Thyroid carcinomas can also reported in ectopic locations in 7.5% of dogs with thyroid carcinoma. The hyoid apparatus and cranial mediastinum are the two most common locations for ectopic thyroid carcinoma, but they can occur anywhere from the tongue to the heart.. Thyroid carcinomas are rare in cats (2% of all thyroid diseases), whereas functional benign thyroid adenomas and hyperplasia are common and cause hyperthyroidism. DIAGNOSIS. Thyroid carcinomas are generally diagnosed by palpation of a mass in the ventral or ventrolateral cervical region. An important step in determining ...
A six-year-old, female, neutered crossbreed was presented to the University of Liverpool Small Animal Teaching Hospital for evaluation of pericardial effusion. Diagnostic imaging confirmed pericardial effusion and cardiac tamponade in addition to a mass located at the heart base. Thoracic CT revealed a strongly contrast-enhancing soft-tissue mass right lateral to the ascending aorta and ventral to the cranial vena cava with no evidence of metastatic disease. Subsequently, a subtotal pericardectomy was performed, and the mass was incompletely excised. Histopathology and immunohistochemistry revealed the mass to be an ectopic thyroid carcinoma of medullary (C cell) origin. The patient was treated with adjunctive chemotherapy (toceranib phosphate). Repeat staging two months later revealed no evidence of macroscopic tumour recurrence or metastatic disease. The patient was subsequently euthanased two months later due to complications of concurrent but unrelated hepatic disease.. ...

A thyroglossal duct cyst is a congenital (present from birth) defect. When the thyroid gland forms during embryonic development, it begins at the base of the tongue and moves down the neck through a canal called the thyroglossal duct. This duct normally disappears once the thyroid reaches its final position in the neck. Sometimes, portions of the duct remain leaving cavities or pockets called cysts. These cysts can fill with fluid or mucus, and may enlarge if they become infected. Very enlarged cysts can cause difficulty swallowing or obstruct breathing passages.. ...
With regard to blood draws, I have been quoted as saying "it gets easier"…. Its true. It gets easier. That doesnt mean they arent still hard.. Yesterday, both of my boys needed to go in for their routine blood draw to check their thyroid levels, as do all children with congenital hypothyroidism. Now that they are older, they only go every 6 months (unless there is an issue, then more frequently). Just enough time to forget they have to ever go again. I picked up my oldest from school. My youngest was already in the car. With my youngest, the less time he has to ponder the thought of having his blood drawn, the better. At the last draw, they both did well. No tears. This is a victory. For any other parent who has a child with a chronic illness (like congenital hypothyroidism), you know what I mean. You too have endured kicking, screaming, biting, fighting and everything else your child has thrown at you and the other people in the lab. You too have watched your child meltdown at the mere ...

The zebrafish has recently emerged as a new, genetically tractable model for investigating the molecular mechanisms underpinning thyroid organogenesis and function (Alt et al., 2006; Elsalini and Rohr, 2003; Guillot et al., 2016; McMenamin et al., 2014; Trubiroha et al., 2018; Wendl et al., 2002). Although a recent report described the larval phenotype associated with CRISPR generated bi-allelic loss-of-function duox mutations in F0 zebrafish (Trubiroha et al., 2018), there have been no prior reports describing the phenotypic consequences of fully characterised duox alleles in adult zebrafish. This is despite the fact that mutations in DUOX2 and DUOX1 have been shown to be associated with congenital hypothyroidism in humans for more than a decade (Aycan et al., 2017; Donkó et al., 2014; Jin et al., 2014; Johnson et al., 2007; Kizys et al., 2017; Tonacchera et al., 2009; Vigone et al., 2005). Here, we describe a comprehensive assessment of the adult phenotypes associated with homozygosity of two ...
CONTEXT: Patients with thyroidal congenital hypothyroidism (CH-T) born in The Netherlands in 1981-1982 showed persistent intellectual and motor deficits during childhood and adulthood, despite initiation of T(4) supplementation at a median age of 28 d after birth. OBJECTIVE: The present study examined whether advancement of treatment initiation to 20 d had resulted in improved cognitive and motor outcome. DESIGN/SETTING/PATIENTS: In 82 Dutch CH-T patients, born in 1992 to 1993 and treated at a median age of 20 d (mean, 22 d; range, 2-73 d), cognitive and motor outcome was assessed (mean age, 10.5 yr; range, 9.6-11.4 yr). Severity of CH-T was classified according to pretreatment free T(4) concentration. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Cognitive and motor outcome of the 1992-1993 cohort in comparison to the 1981 to 1982 cohort was the main outcome measure. RESULTS: Patients with severe CH-T had lower full-scale (93.7), verbal (94.9), and performance (93.9) IQ scores than the normative population (P , 0.05), ...

TDC are routinely investigated with ultrasound, which may reveal a cystic mass at the course of the thyroglossal duct in the midline. They can also be depicted by CT and more detailed with MRI, which can demonstrate the fluid content. However in case of an infected or haemorrhagic TDC, the echogenity in US and attenuation values in CT or MRI may be variable and simulate solid lesions. Even if in some cases ultrasound and MRI may be helpful, fistulography with water soluble contrast agent represents the modality of choice in demonstrating a thyroglossal duct fistula. It provides accurate information regarding its position, the relationship to adjacent anatomical structures and the extent of the tract ...

The thyroglossal duct is an embryological anatomical structure forming an open connection between the initial area of development of the thyroid gland and its final position. It is located exactly mid-line, between the anterior 2/3 and posterior 1/3 of the tongue. The thyroid gland starts developing in the oropharynx in the fetus and descends to its final position taking a path through the tongue, hyoid bone and neck muscles. The connection between its original position and its final position is the thyroglossal duct. This duct normally atrophies and closes off as the foramen cecum before birth but can remain open in some people. ...
The purpose of this study was to estimate the incidence of cases with transient and permanent CH in Hamadan, Iran. In our study, the incidence of CH is found to be 1/1250 of live birth. Of the 164 patients 105 cases (64 %) were proven to have permanent CH and 59 cases (36%) had transient hypothyroidism. The frequency of CH as well as transient hypothyroidism was relatively high in our study. Our data confirm the findings of previous studies regarding the high prevalence of hypothyroidism in Iran (15-18). For example, a meta-analysis study by Veisani et al. (18) revealed that the overall incidence of CH in Iran is 2/1000 of live births. Since the most common etiology of CH was dyshormonogenesis as indicated in the studies conducted by Hashemipour et al. (9) and Karamizadeh et al. (19) in Iran, a relatively high rate of parental consanguinity (25%) among infant with congenital hypothyroidism could account for the increased incidence of CH in our region. In support of the previous data, we also ...
Introduction Congenital hypothyroidism (CH) is common, affecting between 1:3,000 and 4,000 newborn infants. Unrecognized or inadequately treated, CH leads to mental retardation. Newborn screening has made it possible to identify affected infants at a very early age, allowing thyroid therapy to be initiated usually within two weeks of birth. As a result of early diagnosis and appropriate treatment, many children with CH have normal cognitive development. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the European Society for Pediatric Endocrinology (ESPE) have published guidelines to assist physicians in the appropriate evaluation and treatment of children with CH. Although early detection, correct diagnosis and timely treatment are critical to facilitate the best outcomes, little is known about provider practices when confronted with infants with congenital hypothyroidism. We, therefore, conducted a survey of pediatric endocrine providers to categorize beliefs and clinical practices. Methods An on-line

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the vocal characteristics of a group of children with congenital hypothyroidism (CH) and the association of these characteristics with the childrens clinical, laboratory, and therapeutic profiles. MATHERIAL AND METHODS: Observational, analytical, cross-sectional study including 200 prepubertal children, of whom 100 had CH (study group [SG]) and 100 had no CH (control group [CG]). The following parameters were evaluated: 1) history (identification, complaints, and interfering variables), 2) auditory-perceptual and acoustic evaluation (samples analyzed by a group of specialists, and objectively by a computer program), 3) self-assessment scores in the Pediatric Voice-Related Quality-of-Life (PVRQoL) survey, 4) laryngological evaluation (presence or absence of laryngeal lesions and data regarding glottal closure), and 5) medical records (CH etiology, age at treatment initiation, disease severity at diagnosis, treatment quality, and thyroid function tests on the day of the ...
Objectives: -To determine children diagnosed with central congenital hypothyroidism (CCH) by a screening program using TSH and total T4 between May 2016 and January 2019.. -To analyze the characteristics of the disease in these children.. Material and Methods: During the time of the study, 14.743 newborns have been screened. Cut-off points are used for TSH ≥10MU/ml and T4 6 and 20 mg/dl as lower and upper limits.. When the result was positive, a second sample was performed on filter paper and if the second sample was also positive, the patient was sent to the Pediatric Endocrinology Unit to confirm the results. Diagnosed of CCH was made with the combination of low FT4 and inappropriate low TSH. If the patient was diagnosed with CCH, hormonal studies, skull MRI and genetic analyses were performed.. Results: For total T4 values, first simple screening was positive in 112 patients (076% of total). Of these cases, the second sample continued to be positive in 17 cases (011% of the total), in ...
I do not connect stunted thumbs and congenital hypothyroidism, but maybe another reader can help. Regarding the blood hormone levels, certainly it seems that the patient has been under excessive thyroid hormone dosage, and needs to be reduced gradually to a level that keeps the TSH preferrably around 1-1.5, and the freeT4 in the high normal range. It probably will take many months for the pituitary to return to normal as you lower the dose. Regarding the future, I guess you wait and see. If the patient was untreated for 18 months after birth, that suggests a major developmental problem unless there was in fact significant endogenous thyroid hormone production at that time.. L De Groot, MD. ...
Congenital hypothyroidism is inadequate thyroid hormone production in newborn infants. This can occur because of an anatomic defect in the gland, an inborn error of thyroid metabolism, or iodine deficiency.

During the appointment, Dr. M immediately noticed that Grace appeared afraid as he was describing what would need to happen. Her lip was quivering, and she had two of her fingers in her mouth. This immediately made me tear up a bit, and I put Grace on my lap to cuddle her a bit. I quickly suppressed that feeling. Charlie and I exchanged a quick look at each other to communicate our unified feeling of "oh crap." We were hoping this wouldnt come to surgery as Gracie has never been put under before. It was a relief to see the ENT pay close attention to Grace, though. To me that was a sign of his compassion for children. God bless childrens doctors ...

The diagnosis of a thyroglossal duct cyst is often apparent when it presents with typical findings. We report a case of a 6 year-old girl with a low-lying thyroglossal duct cyst presenting with recurrent lateral cervical discharge without palpable mass, thus mimicking a second branchial cleft fistula. CT scan differentiated the lesion from a second branchial cleft fistula, and a standard Sistrunk procedure cured the lesion. In patients who show lateral cervical discharge without definite mass, therefore mimicking a second branchial cleft fistula, a low-lying thyroglossal duct cyst should be considered.
