Sub-centimetric recurrent and persistent metastatic lymph nodes in well-differentiated thyroid cancer: Operate or observe?

Differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) constitutes > 90% of all thyroid cancers and is generally associated with a very good prognosis due to effective surgery and adjuvant therapies. The overall survival (OS) rate at 10 years is reported to be 80 to 94%. Despite an excellent prognosis, locoregional recurrences are common and warrant lifelong follow up. Locoregional recurrence is a significant cause of morbidity among DTC patients. Various studies have reported that mortality in DTC patients is directly related to loco-regional recurrence. Optimal treatment for the management of recurrent/persistent lymph nodes in DTC is still debatable, especially for low volume disease. Modalities available for treatment are either surgery/and RAI or observation. Local ablative therapies like alcohol ablation and radiofrequency ablation are also being used by various groups. The contentious issue is recurrences of less than one centimeter. Follow up with Tg/ATg and USG neck is a reasonable alternative to surgery as finding subcentimetric lymph node in scarred tissue is particularly difficult even in expert hands.

Case series on Cystic Adrenal Lesions: A single Institution experience

Adrenal cysts are rare and uncommon disease with only around 600 cases reported so far. They are usually asymptomatic or may rarely present with abdominal pain or fullness. Different types of adrenal cyst have been described. They are usually benign in nature. Optimum management of adrenal cysts still remain controversy, owing to its low incidence. We report four cases with different histological types of adrenal cysts, their manifestations and management.

Rarely, clinical findings and imaging are unable to differentiate the non-thyroidal swellings from thyroid mass and surgeons may come across intra-operative surprise.
