- A patho-histological study was made on 87 consecutive
surgical-pathological specimens of thyroid lesions
among Koreans, examined at the Department
of Pathology. College of Medicine. Seoul National
University. during a period of approximately 5 years.
Lesions of the thyroid glands examined included
4 cases of thyroglossal duct cyst (5% of total cases
of thyroid lesions). 2 cases of branchial cyst (2%).
1 case of aberrant thyroid 0%). 1 case of tuberculosis
0%), 3 cases of Hashimoto's struma (3%), 1
case of Riedel's struma 0%), 4 cases of chronic
thyroiditis (5%), 17 cases of simple goiter (20%).
10 cases of simple goiter 02%), 11 cases of adencmatous goiter 03%). 8 cases of diffuse goiter (9%).
7 cases of adenoma (8%). 16 cases of carcinoma
08%). 1 case of malignant lymphoma (1%). and 1
case of metastatic carcinoma 0%).
Sex incidence of thyroid lesions was decidedly higher
in females. and the men to women ratio was 1:3
in thyroglossal duct cyst. 0:2 in branchial cyst. 1:0
in aberrant thyroid. 0:3 in Hashimoto's struma, 0:1
in Riedel's struma. 0:4 in chronic thyroiditis. 1:16
in simple goiter. 1:9 in nodular goiter. 1:10 in adenomatous
goiter, 0:8 in diffuse goiter. 0:7 in adenoma.
and 1: 7 in carcinoma respectively.
The average age (and range of ages) of patients
in each type of thyroid lesions was 32 years (2245
years) in thyrogossal duct cyst. 28 years (5-51
years) in branchial cyst. 50 years (50 years) in aberrant
thyroid. 43 years (40-47 years) in Hashimoto's
struma, 53 years (53 years) in Riedel's struma. 45
years (19-58 years) in chronic thyroiditis. 34 years
05-48 years) in simple goiter. 34 years 08-57 years)
in nodular goiter. 30 years 05-48 years) in
adenomatous goiter, 34 years 08-57 years) in diffuse
goiter, 30 years 04-25 years) in adenoma. and
44 years (26-65 years) in carcinoma respectively.
Histological classification of carcinoma of the thyroid
glands showed: papillary carcinoma; 6 cases
(38%), adenocarcinoma; 6 cases (38%) and anaplastic
carcinoma; 4 cases (24%). Many cases of thyroid
carcinomas were observed among relatively
younger individuals, and 44% of all cases of thyroid
carcinomas were found in the age group below 39
years. However. in this connection, youthfulness of
the Korean population at this time should be considered
in evaluation of the above numerals. The
frequency ratio of thyroid carcinomas among all
malignancies was 0.31% in males. 2.12% in females.
and 1.39% in males and females together0956-19
