Thyroiditis after Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) mRNA Vaccine: A Case Series

Highlights1)Thyrotoxicosis with palpitation, and neck tenderness is the most common presentation of thyroiditis. The patients with new onset of thyrotoxicosis should be asked about history of mRNA-vaccine injection for the possible etiology. 2)mRNA vaccine induced thyroiditis could occur 10-20 days after the first dose or the second dose. 3)Management is to relieve the symptom of …

Association of Metabolic Health and Central Obesity With the Risk of Thyroid Cancer: Data from the Korean Genome and Epidemiology Study

Background:It is unknown whether the risk of thyroid cancer differs among metabolically healthy/unhealthy, normal-weight, or obese women. We aimed to assess the association of metabolic health and obesity with thyroid cancer risk. Methods:The Korean Genome and Epidemiology Study is a population-based prospective cohort study. Data were obtained from 173,343 participants (age {greater than or equal …

Thyroid as a target of adjuvant autoimmunity/inflammatory syndrome due to mRNA-based SARS-CoV2 vaccination: from Graves’ disease to silent thyroiditis

BackgroundAs COVID-19 became a pandemic, the urgent need to find an effective treatment vaccine has been a major objective. Vaccines contain adjuvants which are not exempt from adverse effects and can trigger the autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA). There is very little information about autoimmune endocrine disease and the ASIA after the use of …

Evidence of a Causal Relationship between Serum #Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone and #Osteoporotic Bone Fractures

We aimed to validate the association of genome-wide association study (GWAS)-identified loci and polygenic risk score with serum thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) concentrations and the diagnosis of hypothyroidism. Then, the causal relationship between serum TSH and osteoporotic bone fracture risk was tested. Methods: A cross-sectional study was done among patients of European Caucasian ethnicity recruited in …
