When Graves' Disease Patients Should Stop Methimazole Before RIT

With commentary by Jason Wexler, MD, endocrinologist at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, D.C., and Spyros Mezitis, MD, PhD, endocrinologist at Lenox Hill Hospital, New York
"The study gets at a question that we have often wondered about," says Jason Wexler, MD, an endocrinologist at MedStar Washington Hospital Center and an assistant professor of medicine at Georgetown University. He reviewed the findings, which were published online September 29 in Nuclear Medicine Communications. Although the study provides some important information, the study follow up is brief, Dr. Wexler pointed out. They are, however, often recommended before and during treatment for thyroid cancer, Dr. Wexler says. Graves' patients can be assured, Dr. Wexler says, that they would not get enough iodine from a typical, regular diet to interfere with RIT treatment.


Case study examines spread of papillary thyroid cancer to bones

Dr. Jason Wexler of Georgetown's School of Medicine emphasized that this case is extraordinary for its rarity and direness, since PTC is relatively survivable and unlikely to spread.
For one thing, Wexler believed that the patient had had cancer for some time without being aware of it. He wrote that the woman, who was 43 years old at the time of admittance, had undergone a partial thyroidectomy 25 years previously to treat a benign lump. In the present day, a routine checkup detected a large tumor in one of the woman's neck lymph nodes. Subsequent radioactive iodine (I-131) imaging and computed tomographic scans revealed that the patient had extensive metastases in her lung, ribs, vertebrae and humerus. A biopsy established that these tumors had grown from migrated PTC cells. Wexler estimated that only 1 to 7 percent of PTC cases involve bone metastases.
