nodular disease

nod·u·lar dis·ease

esophagostomiasis in herbivores and primates, characterized by nodules in the wall of the large intestine, cecum, and occasionally, the ileum; the nodules are filled with caseous material and result from host response to encystment of the larvae of Oesophagostomum species.

The type of carcinoma associated with benign nodular disease and the duration of the nodular disease is also taken into consideration.
If, in the future, the diagnostic criteria for NS should be expanded to include small nodular disease seen on CT studies, its incidence would increase up to or very close to 100%.
There is increasing recognition that total thyroidectomy is appropriate for patients with benign thyroid disease when there is significant nodular disease involving both lobes (Bron and O'Brien, 2004).
However, it rarely leaves any sequelae, except for some areas of scleral transparency or stromal keratitis in cases of severe nodular disease always occurring in the same area.
6) Using radioactive iodine to treat nodular disease in euthyroid individuals with normal uptake on a scan had variable results, with 20% of patients having no change in nodule size and 80% having up to a 60% decrease in size at 5 years.
Toxic nodular disease was diagnosed on the grounds of a nodular goitre and a focal increase in radionuclide uptake.
Chronic silicosis is a bilateral nodular disease, starting in the upper zones.
Furthermore, a negative association between higher TRAb levels and nodular disease is evidence against mediation of nodule formation by TSH receptor stimulation in the thyroid gland.
At baseline, smokers were more likely to be rheumatoid factor positive and have nodular disease, but smokers and non-smokers did not differ in baseline Disease Activity Score 28 (DAS28), Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) scores, pain scores, or C-reactive protein level.
At baseline, smokers were more likely to be rheumatoid factor positive and have nodular disease, but smokers and nonsmokers did not differ in baseline Disease Activity Score (DAS) 28, Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) scores, pare scores, or C-reactive protein level, Dr.
Their tissue specimens were sent for routine pathology and analyzed for the presence of inflammation, the type of nodular disease, the size of the nodules, and the surrounding tissue pathology.
