These values are well above the 4 to 35% false-negative rate reported in the literature for thyroglobulin
positivity excludes a breast primary, metastatic ovarian carcinoma and metastatic lung adenocarcinoma.
level as a predictive factor of tumoral recurrence in differentiated thyroid cancer.
and total body scan to identify these metastases.
Value of the first serum thyroglobulin
level after total thyroidectomy for the diagnosis of metastases from differentiated thyroid carcinoma.
assays in thyroid cancer monitoring.
14) Suspicion for recurrence should be especially high, and further imaging with PET-CT warranted, in a Hurthle cell patient with elevated serum thyroglobulin
levels despite a negative radioiodine scan.
Immunohistochemical staining was negative for cytokeratine and thyroglobulin
, and positive for CD31 (Figure 1F), CD34 and FVIII.
In genetically-susceptible mice, mononuclear cell infiltration and subsequent destruction of the thyroid can reliably be induced by challenge with the principal thyroid antigen, thyroglobulin
(Tg), and adjuvant .
Assessment methods include urinary iodine concentration, goitre, newborn thyroid-stimulating hormone, and blood thyroglobulin
Under direct ultrasound guidance and using a 27G needle, in addition to the material obtained for cytology, a needle wash specimen was obtained with a saline flush for intact parathyroid hormone and thyroglobulin
After the operation, all patients underwent neck ultrasonography and serum thyroglobulin
tests at three- and six-month intervals.
