  • PAPILLARY CANCER IN A PATIENT TREATED WITH RADIOIODINE FOR GRAVES HYPERTHYROIDISM - CASE-REPORT AND A REVIEW OF THE RISK CLINICAL NUCLEAR MEDICINE Tomlinson, C., NOWLES, K. W., McDougall, I. R. 1991; 16 (10): 729-731

    Abstract:

    A small encapsulated papillary thyroid cancer was found in a patient who had received I-131 therapy for Graves' disease 31 months previously. The relationship of Graves' hyperthyroidism and thyroid cancer is discussed, as well as the possible role of I-131 as a cause of the cancer. The published data do not support I-131 as an etiology. The patient is clinically well and cured of both hyperthyroidism and the cancer.
