- Enhancement of radioiodine uptake in hyperthyroidism with hydrochlorothiazide: a prospective randomised control study. Tepmongkol, Supatporn // European Journal of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging;2002, Vol. 29 Issue 10, p1307
The aim of this study was to determine whether hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) could improve radioiodine uptake in low-uptake hyperthyroid patients. Eighteen hyperthyroid patients with low 3-h and 24-h iodine-131 uptake were recruited to the study. Eleven patients were assigned to the HCTZ group, and...

- Vocal Cord Palsy: A Very Rare Complication of Radioiodine Therapy for Hyperthyroidism. Beshyah, Salem A.; Al-Fallouji, Hosam; Neave, Farhad // Ibnosina Journal of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences;Dec2009, Vol. 1 Issue 3, p101
Laryngeal palsy occurs extremely rarely after radioiodine therapy for Graves' disease. We describe a case of complete right laryngeal paralysis in a 73 year old man who received two conventional doses of radioiodine (15 mCi) 9 months apart. He presented one day after the radioiodine therapy with...
- Anaplastic Thyroid Carcinoma Following Radioactive Iodine Therapy for Graves' Disease. Sun Hwa Kim; Hee Young Kim; Kwang Yoon Jung; Dong Seop Choi; Sin Gon Kim // Endocrinology & Metabolism;Mar2013, Vol. 28 Issue 1, p61
Radioactive iodine (RAI) therapy has been used as a treatment option for Graves' disease, and it has been widely accepted to be safe. On the other hand, some evidence suggests that RAI therapy is possibly associated with a small increased risk of thyroid cancer. Herein, we report a rare case of...
