Re: Secondary Hypothyroidism & Surgery on Nodules
Here are my reports. They are posted elsewhere on here but I'll post them again so no one has to look for them if they are interested.
65-year-old female with decreased thyroid function.
The right lobe of the thyroid gland measures 4.5 x 1.8 x 1.9 cm.
In the inferior pole, there is a heterogeneous nodule, which
measures 3.4 x 1.1 x 2.4 cm. No additional nodules are
The left lobe measures 3.0 x 1.2 x 1.1 cm. In the mid lobe,
there is a subtle hypoechoic nodule, measuring 2.1 x 1.0 x 1.1cm.
The isthmus is thin. There is a subcentimeter nodule noted slightly to the left of midline.
Bilateral thyroid nodules, the largest in the right inferior
pole. These are nonspecific in appearance, and, depending on
clinical suspicion, either short-interval followup to ensure
stability versus percutaneous biopsy could be considered.
TSH 0.20 normal .34 – 5.60
FT4 0.77 normal 0.6 – 1.6
FT3 3.2 normal 2.4 - 4.2
