acute radio thyroiditis

Radioactive thyroiditis ionizing radiation can lead to different changes in human thyroid. The incidence of benign and malignant tumors increased significantly after low-dose (10 ~ 1500 RAD) irradiation, while thyroid function changes and thyroiditis were more common after high-dose irradiation. These changes were related to the dose and type of radiation, exposure time and individual differences, such as age, gender and heredity. Hypothyroidism is the most common manifestation of direct radiation injury to the thyroid gland. Direct irradiation of the thyroid gland can produce a variety of thyroid diseases, including autoimmune thyroiditis, Graves disease, grayes exophthalmos with normal thyroid function, syndrome similar to asymptomatic thyroiditis, thyroid cyst, single or multiple benign nodular papillary, follicular or mixed thyroid cancer.
