Resistance to thyroid hormone RTH is an extremely rare dominantly inherited condition of impaired tissue responsiveness to thyroid hormone TH. Mutant receptors are unable to activate or repress target genes. The majority of them are asymptomatic or rarely have hypo- or hyperthyroidism. We present two cases of RTH diagnosed after total thyroidectomy.

Biotin is a readily available supplement that is part of the B-complex vitamins. It is an essential co-factor for five carboxylases involved in fatty acid synthesis and energy production. The recommended daily intake RDI of biotin ranges from 30 to 70 mcg per day. At high doses 10, times RDI , biotin improves clinical outcomes and quality of life in patients with progressive multiple sclerosis MS.
Thyroid testing: When to worry (not often) and when to reassure
Metrics details. Horner syndrome HS , mainly characterized by symptoms including ptosis, miosis, and anhidrosis on the affected face, is a condition that is well documented but rarely reported as a postoperative complication of thyroidectomy, particularly in endoscopic thyroid surgery ETS. A year-old female was admitted to our hospital with an unexpected physical examination finding of two thyroid nodules that were hypoechoic, had an irregular shape, and exhibited calcification. Thus, total thyroidectomy combined with central lymph node dissection CLND by ETS via the bilateral axillo-breast approach was performed on this patient. However, this patient developed HS with ptosis in her left eye on postoperative day 3.
Thyroid storm is a potentially fatal manifestation of thyrotoxicosis. Cardiopulmonary failure is the most common cause of death in thyroid storm. Clinicians should keep in mind that thyroid storm complicated with cardiopulmonary failure can be the first presentation of thyrotoxicosis. As early intervention is associated with improved patient outcome, prompt diagnosis based on clinical grounds is of paramount importance in the management of thyrotoxicosis.
