49 Possible Causes for Thyroid Bruit

  • Third Trimester Pregnancy

    Abstract We determined unconjugated and total estriol concentrations in serum during the third trimester in 34 normal gestations. Data were obtained weekly for 13 women for as long as nine weeks; 21 others were studied daily for up to 15 days. No correlation between birth weight and either estriol fraction was[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Thyrotoxic Heart Disease

    The finding of new onset atrial fibrillation in a patient with goiter and thyroid bruit, focused attention upon the thyroid gland as the etiology of this patient’s illness[pubs.sciepub.com] Physical examination revealed thyroid enlargement with no nodules or bruit, fine resting tremors, and lid lag.[radcliffecardiology.com] If patients in this setting have history and/or examination suggestive of new Graves disease (goitre with bruit, Graves eye disease) early consideration of anti-thyroid drugs[icid.salisbury.nhs.uk]

  • Iodine Deficiency Goiter

    Abstract During recent years several studies have been published comparing different ways of pharmacological treatment of a goiter due to iodine deficiency. These studies usually were performed with 300 to 500 micrograms of iodine, 100 to 150 micrograms levothyroxine, or a combination of in most cases 100[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
