Background
Fine needle aspiration and biopsy(FNAB) has known the most accurate test(about 90%) in the preoperative evaluation of patients with a thyroid nodule. The false negative findings of thyroid cancer by FNAB are mainly due to the aspiration of cystic fluid in cystic degeneration of thyroid cancer and the ipossibility of differentiation between follicular adenoma and carcinoma by aspiration or FNAB because of the failure to evaluate the capsule invasion or angioinvasion of the tumor. Actually more than 80% of the nodules are found as benign nodules in aspiration or FNAB and the findings of follieular lesions are found about half of the samples tested, so limiting the cancer incidence in surgically resected samples up to 50% of the surgical resection. Sa reasonable guidelines to manage the benign nodules on aspiration or FNAB are needed which can select the maligna~nt nodules with false negative findings on aspiration or FNAB. We tried to evaluate whether the thyroxine suppression therapy can increase the malignancy rates on thyroidectomy, Methods: We treated the benign thyroid nodules in FNAB with thyroxine for 1 year and cornpared the nodule volume change before and after treatment (every 6 month) with ultrasonogram. We performed thyroidectomy on 1~7 thyroid nodules wbich showed less than 50% decrease of nodule volume after 1 year of thyroxine suppression therapy. Results: The results were as follows. 1) Of all 17 patients, surgical resection revealed malignant thyroid nodule(Group I) in 10 cases (58.82%, papillary cancer. 6 cases, follicular cancer: 4 cases) and benign thyroid nodule(Group II) in 7 cases(41.18%, follicular adenoma: 4 cases, adenomatous goiter: 3 cases). 2) Between group I and II, there was no significant differences in serum T, T and TSH levels before and after thyroxine suppression therapy. Also, there were no significant difference in TSH suppression % between group I and group II(5.60+5.39%, 14.64+11.48%, respectively). 3) Thyroid nodule volume decrease percent before and after thyroxi~ne therapy showed no significant difference between group I and group II (124.80+54.18% vs 159.42+79.82%, p>0.05). Conclusion: Our data suggested that the benign thyroid nodules on aspiration or FNAB which were not suppressed in volume after thyroixine therapy revealed more than 50% incidence of malignancy on surgical resection, so these nodules were highly reeommended to surgical exploration.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Osteoporosis is now a major health problem because of the increasing elderly population and related osteoporosis fractures. Recently, it has been suggested that lower bone mass with/and high bone turnover rate is considered to be important in the developing of osteoporosis, and so there has been many efforts to identify the risk factors which is considered to cause lower bone mass and high bone turnover.Osteocalcin, the most abundant noncollagenous protein in bone, is a marker of bone turnover and its synthesis is induced by calcitriol(the active form of vitamine-D) through the vitamine-D receptor(VDR) and a specific vitamine D-responsive element in the osteocalcin gene promoter. Serum concentrations of osteocalcin are under the strong genetic influences and may reflect allelic variation in VDR gene. Therefore, the present study were designed to find the relationships among the polymorphisms of Vitamine-D receptor gene, bone mineral density and bone markers. We analysed the restriction fragment length polymorphisms of VDR gene with Bsm I endonuclease enzyme in relation to bone mineral density by using DEXA(dual energy X-ray absorptiometry, QDR-2000) and bone markers, especially serum osteocalcin concentrations in 356 pre- and postmenopausal Korean women.The frequence of RFLPs of VDR gene is 3.3% in BB type, 10.1% in Bb type, 86.6% in bb type. The concentrations of osteocalcin, alkaline phosphatase, procollagen-C and urinary deoxypyridinoline/creatinine were found to be higher in postmenopausal than premenopausal women and the levels of BMD were lower in postmenopausal than premenopausal women. The BB type, which is known to have a strong genetic determinant, is less frequently encountered in Korean women and does not correlate with levels of bone markers and bone mineral density. Even though the number of women with BB type is small, we noted the mean serum level of each bone marker was greater in postmenopausal women with BB type than in premenopausal women with the same genotype.In conclusion, this may suggest a partial agreement of our data with that of Australlian group and that we have to try to find out another genotype specifically related with lower bone density in Korean women.
