Hot nodules are rarely found to be carcinomas. We report a case of a nonmetastatic follicular carcinoma that presented as a hot nodule that was causing hyperthyroidism. A base substitution (ATC for TTC) was found in codon 486 of the TSH receptor gene and this resulted in the substitution of an isoleucine for a phenylalanine in the first extracellular loop of the receptor. This was absent in the deoxyribonucleic acid from the surrounding normal thyroid tissue indicating its somatic origin. This mutation, which was previously reported to activate both cyclic adenosine monophosphate and the inositol phosphate-diacylglycerol cascades, may have been responsible for the constitutive activation of the thyrotropin receptor and resulting hyperfunction of this follicular carcinoma.

Abstract

Hot nodules are rarely found to be carcinomas. We report a case of a nonmetastatic follicular carcinoma that presented as a hot nodule that was causing hyperthyroidism. A base substitution (ATC for TTC) was found in codon 486 of the TSH receptor gene and this resulted in the substitution of an isoleucine for a phenylalanine in the first extracellular loop of the receptor. This was absent in the deoxyribonucleic acid from the surrounding normal thyroid tissue indicating its somatic origin. This mutation, which was previously reported to activate both cyclic adenosine monophosphate and the inositol phosphate-diacylglycerol cascades, may have been responsible for the constitutive activation of the thyrotropin receptor and resulting hyperfunction of this follicular carcinoma.
