No clinical or neuroimaging evidence of relapse was detected at 12 months follow-up AbstractText: Hyperthyroidism may contribute to the development of CVST. The presence of acute transverse sinus thrombosis, as a cause of PNSAH, provides further support for the hypothesis that the source of PNSAH is venous in origin and intracranial venous hypertension plays a critical role in the ...
BACKGROUND: In addition to its established role in oncologic imaging, F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (F-FDG PET/CT) is useful for the assessment of inflammatory activity. However, subacute thyroiditis (SAT) in thyrotoxicosis is rarely detected during these scans.
CASE: A 66-year-old man with SAT in thyrotoxicosis demonstrated symptoms of transient fatigue, headache, and fever, without typical neck pain. Using F-FDG PET/CT, we found increased F-FDG uptake in the thyroid gland, predominantly in the right side due to SAT. We also observed a coexisting decrease in F-FDG uptake in the liver and increased F-FDG uptake in skeletal muscle due to thyrotoxicosis.
CONCLUSION: Using F-FDG PET/CT, the combined observations of increased F-FDG uptake in the thyroid and skeletal muscle, and decreased F-FDG uptake in the liver, even when the typical symptom of neck pain is subtle or absent, may be helpful for the differential diagnosis of SAT in thyrotoxicosis.
