NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY ASSOCIATES IN MEDICINE, P.A. second book, "Super Nutrition for Women." Saberi publishes Beebe Medical Center endocri- nologist Dr. Mansour Saberi, Dr. Zubair W. Baloch and Dr. Vir- ginia A. Livolsi of the Universi- ty of Pennsyl- vania Medical Center Depart- meat of Pathol- ogy and Labo- ratory Medi- cine, recently coauthored an article titled, 8ABERI "Simultaneous Involvem.ent of. , Thyroid by Reidil's Disease and Fibrosing Hashimoto's Thyroidi- tis: A Case Report." The paper was recently pub- lished in "Thyroid Magazine," the official journal of the American Thyroid Association. The publication reports a rare and coincidental combination of Reidel's disease and fibrosing Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Hashimoto's thyroiditis, more common in women, is associated with the swelling of the thyroid gland and hypothyroidism and is closely linked to Grave's disease, goiter or enlargement of the thy- 645-8052. journal article on roid gland. Reidel's disease is a rare chronic inflammatory condi- tion affecting the thyroid gland. Symptoms are painless enlarge- ment of the thyroid, often with pressure symptoms due to tracheal and esophageal involvement. The patient whose case is re- ported was referred by her family physician to an endocrinologist. She presented with a history of re- cent weight gain, cold intolerance and a lump in the fight side of her neck. _ -ffhe combinatibn of smptoms led the physicians to believe they were dealing with a unique dis- ease, showing features of both fi- brosing Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Reidel's disease. No malignancy was found; the case does not represent malignant lymphoma arising in Hashimoto's thyroiditis, because histologic evi- dence of lymphoma was not seen. To date, nine cases have been reported in the English literature that showed features of both fi- brosing Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Reidel's disease. However, only four of those case reports describe simultane- my oid disease ous involvement by both diseases. The remaining five cases did not show simultaneous involve- ment of the thyroid gland by Hashimoto's thyroiditis or Rei- del's disease and the time interval between these entities in the same patient ranged from 6 months to 26 years. The three physicians believe these processes are distinct and feel it is important to recognize the clinicopathological features of both,-tas some historical features may overlap and be a cause of misinterpretation. In this regard, appropriate clinical studies and testing may be helpful. NANCY A. UNION, M.D. KEVIN P.S. WALLACE, M.D. RENATA B.
