    Premature newborns are particularly vulnerable to iatrogenic hypothyroidism due to iodine exposure, usually through skin absorption of iodine-containing disinfectants or intravenous administration of iodinated contrast agents. We report here a case of severe iatrogenic hypothyroidism with goiter...

    Background: Intravascular administration of iodinated contrast media continues to be a common cause of hospital-acquired acute kidney injury. Accumulating evidence suggests that radiocontrast agent-induced nephrotoxicity is associated with increased oxidative stress, which leads to renal tissue...

    The authors discuss the retrospective study conducted by C. M. Rhee and colleagues on the association between iodine-based contrast media exposure and hyperthyroidism. The authors explain that the data in the study fit very well with their findings at the Copenhagen University Hospital Herlev,...

    The use of iodinated or gadolinium-based contrast media in pregnant or lactating women often causes concerns in the radiology department because of the principle of not exposing a fetus or neonate to any drugs. Because of the uncertainty about the use of contrast media during pregnancy and...

    Excess free iodide in the blood (ingested or injected) may cause thyrotoxicosis in patients at risk. Iodinated contrast medium solutions contain small amounts of free iodide and may be of significance for patients at risk. The free iodide may also interfere with nuclear medicine diagnostic...

    Abstract Purpose: Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) can be measured by iopromide plasma clearance. As an injection of 120 ml nonionic contrast medium is expensive and especially in patients with nephropathy potentially nephrotoxic, we investigated whether iopromide plasma clearance could be...

    We report the effect of Gastrografin on thyroid function in 7 neonates. Levels of free thyroxine and thyroid stimulating hormone, serum and urine iodine concentrations were determined before and after using gastrografin. Transient hypothyroidism was seen in 3 patients. No thyroid gland...
