AIM OF THE STUDY: The Authors performed a retrospective study on their case records in order to analyze the epidemiological
aspects of association between Hashimoto thyroidítis and differentiated thyroid carcínoma.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: From January 2004 to December 2005 the Authors performed 282 total thyroidectomy for
any thyroid pathology. All patients were studied preoperatively even dosing antithyroid antíbodies. In the study are included
patients who presented histologicalfinding of both Hashimoto thyroiditis and carcinoma.
RESULTS: Eleven patients (23.9%) of 46 patients operated on for differentiated thyroid carcinoma also presented histologicalfinding
Association of thyroiditis and carcinoma was present in 39.2% of histologically detecied thyroiditis (28 patiems).
CONCLUSIONS: Pathophysiological relationship between Hashímoto thyroiditis and DTC are still unclear, although a certain
association of theese two anatomo-clinic entity has been demonstrated. We can’t yet say if Hashimoto thyroiditis
advance and facilitale tumour arising or thyroiditis is a reaction to neoplasia or these two pathologìes are indipendeni
each other, although both are present in the same patient.
