11 Possible Causes for Calcified Thyroid Cartilage

  • Tracheal Calcification

    Cricoid and arytenoid cartilages calcify in the third decade, but somewhat later than thyroid cartilage.[dynamicchiropractic.com] Triticeous cartilages are variable small, elastic cartilages that calcify.[dynamicchiropractic.com] When completely calcified, it has an L-shaped appearance.

  • Cricoarytenoid Ankylosis

    […] ala is splayed apart to a more obtuse angle 11.  This can lead to pre-epiglottic space bleeding & posterior displacement of epiglottis  Calcified thyroid cartilage gets[slideshare.net] […] thyroid cartilage in the neck  This injury depends on degree of calcification of the cartilage  Minimal injury – no fracture  If pushed backwards over cervical spine,thyroid[slideshare.net]

  • Laryngeal Lesion

    cartilage was calcified.[ejo.eg.net] […] with that of Youssefzadeh et al. 17, who reported that the laryngeal spaces can be well-observed if the thyroid cartilage was not calcified.[ejo.eg.net] As regards the vocal cord mobility, it was clearly visible in most participants, except in three of them (25%) as their thyroid cartilage was calcified; our finding was consistent[ejo.eg.net]

  • Laryngeal Fracture

    […] ala is splayed apart to a more obtuse angle 11.  This can lead to pre-epiglottic space bleeding & posterior displacement of epiglottis  Calcified thyroid cartilage gets[slideshare.net] The degree if injury and pattern of injury is determined by the degree of calcification of thyroid cartilage.[drtbalu.co.in] […] thyroid cartilage in the neck  This injury depends on degree of calcification of the cartilage  Minimal injury – no fracture  If pushed backwards over cervical spine,thyroid[slideshare.net]

  • Brachytelephalangic Chondrodysplasia Punctata

    thyroid, hyoid cartilage, and tracheal ring calcification up to proximal main bronchus giving a “zipper-” like appearance [Figure 2] .[ijccm.org] […] patient demonstrating low set ears, hypertelorism, depressed nasal bridge, and midfacial hypoplasia Click here to view Skiagram of chest and neck showed features of the calcified[ijccm.org]

  • Psychosocial Deprivation

    Although it reveals only calcified elements it provides a glimpse into a whole variety of processes in bone and cartilage growth, differentiation and calcification which,[books.google.com] Thyroid hormones, sex steroids, calcium regulating hormones are but a few of these control mechanisms, and their effect may become evident when radiograms are carefully examined[books.google.com]

  • Foreign Body in the Pharynx

    The foreign body you see on a plain x ray may simply be normal calcification of thyroid cartilage.[ncemi.org] Lateral soft-tissue x rays can be very misleading because ligaments and cartilage in the neck calcify at various rates and patterns.[ncemi.org]

  • Laryngectomy

    If tracheal cartilage is calcified, you may need to decalcify individual blocks, AFTER adequate fixation.[grosspathology-sites.uchicago.edu] Submit representative sections of other normal structures, including thyroid and skin.[grosspathology-sites.uchicago.edu]

  • Bilateral Vocal Cord Paralysis

    […] the laryngeal space cannot be seen clearly if the thyroid cartilage is calcified.[ejo.eg.net] In addition, Garel et al. [18] reported that complete anterior calcification of the thyroid cartilage created an acoustic shadow, which made it difficult to evaluate the larynx[ejo.eg.net] In addition, the calcification of the thyroid cartilage interfered with proper assessment of the vocal folds, which is supported by Youssef et al. [17] , who reported that[ejo.eg.net]
