Of the 13 cases with clinical thyrotoxicosis, 9 cases were found with serum FT 3 and FT 4 values above normal and serum TSH values below normal, the rest 4 with increased FT 3, normal FT 4 and decreased TSH.
In routine laboratory investigation hyperthyroidism and hypercalcaemia were detected.
A 35-year-old man with known hyperthyroidism because of a toxic multinodular goiter developed thyrotoxic crisis with various organ failures.
Thyrotoxic crisis is a rare, life-threatening complication of hyperthyroidism.
Thyroid storm can develop in patients with longstanding hyperthyroidism.
???Albeit there was a high number of nodular transformed glands and goitrous patients included, and our cohort was recruited in an iodine deficient area, we did not observe hyperthyroidism in any patient.
In the groups fed the gallstone inducing diet an opposite effect was observed: a shift towards cholic acid in the hyperthyroid animals and a shift towards chenodeoxycholic acid in those fed with propylthiouracil.
The effect of propranolol on cardiac mechanics and haemodynamics was examined on isolated papillary muscle as well as in situ in the closed thorax in euthyroid and hyperthyroid cats.
Whereas no difference could be demonstrated between hypo- and euthyroid ventricular myocardium, Ca2+-activated ATPase activity was significantly higher in the hyperthyroid than in the hypo- or euthyroid state.
Using pyrophosphate electrophoresis and isoelectric focusing of subfragment 1 this could be ascribed to an additional ventricular myosin in the hyperthyroid myocardium.
The cardiac cells in hyperthyroid rats had a significantly larger diameter and more mitochondria than did those of the control rats.
Horizontal saccades were examined in 25 patients with hyperthyroidism and/or endocrine ophthalmopathy (EOP) using the infrared reflection method.
A standardized test for muscle fatigue, however, gave pathological results in all but one of the patients with EOP, and also in three of seven patients with hyperthyroidism but no clinical EOP.
The analyzed group included 50 recently diagnosed patients with hyperthyroidism who were examined twice: before and after 3 months of thyrostatic treatment.
Objective: To assess the effectiveness of radioactive iodine (RAI) treatment in patients with hyperthyroidism and to evaluate prognostic factors affecting outcome.
37 patients with hyperthyroidism, 23 patients with various forms of thyroiditis and 10 patients with malignomas of the thyroid were examined for humoral thyroid antibodies as well as for lymphocytes sensitized against thyroid antigens.
Simultaneous treatment with carbimazole and granulocyte-colony stimulating factor in a patient with thyrotoxicosis and carbimazo
We describe a patient who was admitted with uncontrolled thyrotoxicosis and carbimazole induced neutropenia.
Thyrotoxicosis is not only able to aggravate preexisting cardiac disease but can also by itself lead to atrial fibrillation, cardiomegaly or congestive heart failure.
The special implications of cardiavascular pharmacotherapy, especially the risk of early β-blocker therapy in patients suffering from thyrotoxicosis with severe congestive heart failure are emphasized.
Emergency coronary angiography with gadolinium in a patient with thyrotoxicosis, pulmonary embolism and persistent right atrial
