          Long-term results of treatment of 283 patients with lung and bone metastases from differentiated thyroid carcinoma.

          We assessed the results of treatment in 283 patients with lung or bone metastases from differentiated thyroid carcinoma who were followed for up to 40 yr (median, 44 months) after the discovery of the metastases. The survival rates from the time of discovery of the metastases were 53% at 5 yr, 38% at 10 yr, and 30% at 15 yr; 156 patients died. Multivariate analysis revealed that only 4 variables had an independent prognostic significance for survival. They were extensive metastases, older age at discovery of the metastases, absence of radioiodine uptake by the metastases, and moderately differentiated follicular cell type. The site of metastases (lung or bone) was not a prognostic factor for survival after treatment of metastatic disease. Remission was achieved in 79 patients after metastases were found. The only predictive factor for 5-yr disease-free survival after treatment of metastases was the initial extent of disease. Our results suggest that the aim of management should be to detect and treat metastases in patients with thyroid cancer as early as possible.

            Distant metastases in differentiated thyroid carcinoma: a multivariate analysis of prognostic variables.

            From a cohort of 988 patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma receiving primary surgical treatment between 1946 and 1970, we studied the 85 (9%) patients who had distant metastases diagnosed during life. Clinically detected metastases were found in 7% of the 859 patients with papillary cancers, 19% of the 100 patients with follicular cancers, and 34% of the 29 patients with Hürthle cell cancers. The total experience amounted to 607 patient-years of observation after the diagnosis of metastases, with a median follow-up in the 12 survivors of 23 yr (range, 13-32 yr). At the time of first diagnosis of metastases, the lungs only were involved in 53%, and bones only in 20%; 16% had multiple organ involvement. The overall mortality rates 5 and 10 yr after the diagnosis of metastases were 65% and 75%, respectively. Seventy-eight percent of all deaths were directly attributable to thyroid cancer; 82% of cancer deaths occurred within 5 yr. By univariate analysis, patient age, tumor extent, pattern of lung involvement, radioiodine uptake of the metastases, and radioiodine treatment were significant prognostic factors. By multivariate analysis, only age (as a continuous variable) at the time of first diagnosis of distant metastases (P less than 0.0001) and involvement of multiple organ sites (P = 0.0003) were independently associated with cancer mortality. The survival at 5 yr in 12 patients aged less than 40 yr with only a single organ involved was 92%. Older patients (aged greater than or equal to 40 yr) with a single metastasis (n = 59) had a lower survival (38% at 5 yr). The highest risk of cancer death (92% at 5 yr) was found in the 14 patients (any age) who at the time of first diagnosis of metastases had multiple organ involvement. The Cox regression model suggested that radioiodine therapy did not have a significant influence on survival, after adjusting for age and extent of metastatic involvement.

              Thyroid cancer: a study of 573 thyroid tumors and 161 autopsy cases observed over a thirty-year period.

              Five hundred and seventy-three thyroid tumors from surgical material and 161 autopsy cases were studied as to incidence, types, and precursor changes using the new WHO-classification. In the surgical material 225 tumors were follicular, 145 papillary, 147 anaplastic, 23 squamous cell, and 10 medullary. Twenty-three sarcomas were found. tthe percentage of follicular carcinoma had decreased, whereas that of papillary carcinoma increased and that of anaplastic carcinoma remained constant. In over 50% of anaplastic carcinomas neoplastic follicular structures have been identified. As a rule the more sections are prepared, the more papillary carcinomas and the less sarcomas are diagnosed. Thyroid tumors leading to death were found in 0.33% of 53,134 consecutive autopsies. Anaplastic (52.3%) and follicular (33.5%) carcinoma were most frequently encountered. Metastases of follicular and anaplastic carcinoma were most often found in the lung, pleura, and bones, whereas lymph nodes of the neck, lung, and bones were predominantly involved in cases of the papillary type. Therapy of thyroid carcinoma is total thyroidectomy. The transition of follicular carcinoma to the anaplastic type has to be avoided whenever possible.
