An additional ultrasonographic sign of Hashimoto’s lymphocytic thyroiditis in children

Wojciech Kosiak/ Maciej Piskunowicz/ Dominik Świętoń/ Tomasz Batko/ Mariusz Kaszubowski

Methods: A total of 98 children (mean age 12.7 years, range 7–17 years) were selected from the registry of the endocrinology outpatient department. All subjects met the diagnostic criteria for HLT. All children underwent a prospective thyroid ultrasound examination with special attention paid to the presence of lymph nodes adjacent to the thyroid gland. In order to form a control group, we analyzed 102 healthy volunteers and 94 children with cervical lymphadenopathy, age- and sex-matched with th(..)

Aim: The aim of the study was to assess the clinical usefulness of SWE in medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) diagnostics. Materials and methods: A total of 169 focal lesions were identified in the study group (139 patients), including 6 MTCs in 4 patients (mean age: 45 years). B-mode ultrasound and SWE were performed using Aixplorer (SuperSonic, Aix-en-Provence), with a 4–15 MHz linear probe. The ultrasound was performed to assess the echogenicity and echostructure of the lesions, their margin, t(..)

Echogenicity of benign adrenal focal lesions on imaging with new ultrasound techniques – report with pictorial presentation

Rafał Z. Słapa/ Anna A. Kasperlik-Załuska/ Bartosz Migda/ Maciej Otto/ Katarzyna Dobruch-Sobczak/ Wiesław S. Jakubowski

Aim: The aim of the research was to assess the echogenicity of benign adrenal focal lesions using new ultrasound techniques. Material and method: 34 benign adrenal masses in 29 patients were analyzed retrospectively. The examinations were conducted using Aplio XG (Toshiba, Japan) ultrasound scanner with a convex probe 1–6 MHz in the B-mode presentation with the combined use of new ultrasound techniques: harmonic imaging and spatial compound sonography. The size of the adrenal tumors, their echog(..)

Standards of ultrasound imaging of the adrenal glands

Rafał Z. Słapa/ Wiesław S. Jakubowski/ Katarzyna Dobruch-Sobczak/ Anna A. Kasperlik-Załuska

Adrenal glands are paired endocrine glands located over the upper renal poles. Adrenal pathologies have various clinical presentations. They can coexist with the hyperfunction of individual cortical zones or the medulla, insuffi ciency of the adrenal cortex or retained normal hormonal function. The most common adrenal masses are tumors incidentally detected in imaging examinations (ultrasound, tomography, magnetic resonance imaging), referred to as incidentalomas. They include a range of histopa(..)

Doppler imaging of orbital vessels in the assessment of the activity and severity of thyroid-associated orbitopathy

Dorota Walasik-Szemplińska/ Magdalena Pauk-Domańska/ Urszula Sanocka/ Iwona Sudoł-Szopińska

Patients with symptoms of thyroid-associated orbitopathy are classifi ed on the basis of the clinical activity score (CAS) proposed by Mourits in 1989. Despite its undoubted clinical usefulness, it has several limitations which can decide about the success or failure of the implemented treatment. Numerous reports mention the presence of hemodynamic changes in orbital and bulbar vessels in the course of an orbitopathy called Graves’ disease. The usage of Doppler sonography in the diagnosis of num(..)

The role of ultrasound and nuclear medicine methods in the preoperative diagnostics of primary hyperparathyroidism

Michał Nieciecki/ Marek Cacko/ Leszek Królicki

Primary hyperparathyroidism (PH) represents one of the most common endocrine diseases. In most cases, the disorder is caused by parathyroid adenomas. Bilateral neck exploration has been a widely used treatment method for adenomas since the 20’s of the twentieth century. In the last decade, however, it has been increasingly replaced by a minimally invasive surgical treatment. Smaller extent, shorter duration and lower complication rate of such a procedure are emphasized. Its effi cacy depends on (..)

Value of ultrasonography in the diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome – literature review

Michał Bachanek/ Nebil Abdalla/ Krzysztof Cendrowski/ Włodzimierz Sawicki

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a multi-factorial disease. Its etiopathogenesis has not been elucidated in detail. It is the most common endocrine disorder in women of child-bearing age. This disease entity is primarily characterized by disrupted ovulation and hyperandrogenism, but the clinical picture can be diversifi ed and symptom intensity can vary. Currently, the sonographic assessment of ovaries is one of the obligatory criteria for the diagnosis of PCOS according to the Rotterdam consensus ((..)

Ultrasound image of the thyroid gland in obese children

Józef Szczyrski/ Wojciech Kosiak/ Maria Korpal-Szczyrska/ Małgorzata Myśliwiec

Obesity as a disease of affl uence also affects younger children. Numerous observations suggest a link between excessive body weight and thyroid function disorders. Subclinical hypothyroidism has been diagnosed increasingly frequently in patients with obesity. A growing number of papers also point to morphological changes of the thyroid gland in the ultrasound examination in obese children. These reports mainly concern changes in echogenicity. The present paper discusses the most important aspec(..)

Adrenal abscess in a 3-week-old neonate – a case report

Małgorzata Rumińska/ Ewelina Witkowska-Sędek/ Stanisław Warchoł/ Teresa Dudek-Warchoł/ Michał Brzewski/ Beata Pyrżak

The authors present a case of a 6-year-old boy operated on in the 4th week of life because of adrenal abscess. The diagnosis of an adrenal abscess in the neonatal period is challenging due to its rare occurrence and non-specifi c signs. Adrenal abscesses can develop via two mechanisms: as a result of a hematogenic infection and a spread of bacteria to “normal” adrenal glands or, which is much more common, a complication of an adrenal hematoma. Early and accurate diagnosis is crucial for appropri(..)

Contralateral adrenal metastasis from renal cell carcinoma with tumor thrombus in the adrenal vein:a case report

Sebastian Piotrowicz/ Natalia Muśko/ Mieszko Kozikowski/ Łukasz Nyk/ Andrzej Borówka/ Jakub Dobruch

A 64-year-old woman presented with contralateral right adrenal metastasis with adrenal vein thrombus, which was diagnosed many years after left nephrectomy with adrenalectomy due to renal cell cancer. The patient underwent right adrenalectomy with adrenal vein tumor thrombectomy for treatment. The pathologic examination confi rmed metastatic clear cell carcinoma. The remote but existing risk of developing contralateral adrenal metastasis (CAM) after primary radical nephrectomy supports the idea (..)
