Solitary thyroid nodules in 71 children and adolescents.

Seventy-one children and adolescents with a solitary nodule of the thyroid gland were seen over a 27-year period and all had their nodules removed surgically. All of the patients had preoperative thyroid scintiscans, 55 of which showed a cold nodule. The most common cause of solitary thyroid nodules was follicular adenoma. Fourteen of the 55 cold nodules were malignant (25.5%) while no malignancies were present in warm or hot nodules. Available diagnostic methods for attempting differentiation of benign from malignant solitary nodules are reviewed and recommendations to their clinical management as derived from our experience are presented.
