Examples of "goitre"
An expert on goitre surgery he was a founder of the American Goitre Association.
There can be many nodules, which is termed a multinodular goitre, and this can sometimes be a toxic multinodular goitre.
Two signs are truly 'diagnostic' of Graves' disease ("i.e.," not seen in other hyperthyroid conditions): exophthalmos and nonpitting edema (pretibial myxedema). Goitre is an enlarged thyroid gland and is of the diffuse type ("i.e.," spread throughout the gland). Diffuse goitre may be seen with other causes of hyperthyroidism, although Graves' disease is the most common cause of diffuse goitre. A large goitre will be visible to the naked eye, but a small goitre (mild enlargement of the gland) may be detectable only by physical examination. Occasionally, goitre is not clinically detectable, but may be seen only with CT or ultrasound examination of the thyroid.
Goitre is more common among women, but this includes the many types of goitre caused by autoimmune problems, and not only those caused by simple lack of iodine.
Graves' disease has also been called exophthalmic goitre.
Goitre had been prevalent in the alpine countries for a long time. Switzerland reduced the condition by introducing iodised salt in 1922. The Bavarian tracht in the Miesbach and Salzburg regions, which appeared in the 19th century, includes a choker, dubbed "Kropfband" (struma band) which was used to hide either the goitre or the remnants of goitre surgery.
Some inland areas where soil and water lacks in iodine compounds and consumption of marine foods is low are known for higher incidence of goitre. In such areas goitre is said to be "endemic".
Roberto Goitre (Turin, 1927 - Piacenza, 1980) was an Italian choirmaster, composer and teacher.
Worldwide, over 90% cases of goitre are caused by iodine deficiency.
Symptoms of toxic multinodular goitre are similar to that of hyperthyroidism, including:
In the 1920s wearing bottles of iodine around the neck was believed to prevent goitre.
The multinodular goiter can be associated with hyperthyroidism ("Toxic multinodular goitre") or not.
Endemic goiter is a type of goitre that is associated with dietary iodine deficiency.
Pant-y-Goitre House is a Grade II listed country house thought to date c.1776.
In 2003 Goitre was put on the Jam DVD as an extra.
Some forms of goitre are associated with pain, whereas many do not cause any symptoms. Enlarged goitres may extend beyond the normal position of the thyroid gland to below the sternum, around the airway or esophagus. Goitres may be associated with hyperthyoidism or hypothyroidism, relating to the underlying cause of the goitre. Thyroid function tests may be done to investigate the cause and effects of the goitre. The underlying cause of the goitre may be treated, however many goitres with no associated symptoms are simply monitored.
Goitre is treated according to the cause. If the thyroid gland is producing too much T3 and T4, radioactive iodine is given to the patient to shrink the gland. If goitre is caused by iodine deficiency, small doses of iodide in the form of Lugol's Iodine or KI solution are given. If the goitre is associated with an underactive thyroid, thyroid supplements are used as treatment. In extreme cases, a partial or complete thyroidectomy is required.
The location is very rural. The River Usk passes close by, crossed by the Pant-y-Goitre Bridge.
A struma ovarii (literally: goitre of the ovary) is a rare form of mature teratoma that contains mostly thyroid tissue.
