ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: amiodarone-induced hyperthyroidism

History: 85 y.o. white female w/ prior h/o multinodular goiter, w/ recent history of ventricular arrhythmias treated with amiodarone and a placement of a pacemaker. Review of systems is unremarkable.

Findings: Planar and pinhole images of the thyroid bed after the administration of I-123 demonstrate somewhat heterogeneous uptake of radiotracer in both lobes of the gland, with decreased thyroid-to-background ratio. The 4-hour and 24-hour uptake were 1% and 4%, respectively

Ddx: amiodarone-induced thyroiditis increased iodine pool due to amiodarone

Exam: non-enlarged, non-tender thyroid gland with irregular texture without a dominant nodule. TSH slightly below normal limits free T4 slightly above normal limits

No MeSH data available.
