Stimulated postoperative thyroglobulin levels may be useful for predicting the risk for persistent disease in children and adolescents with differentiated thyroid cancer, study data show.

Ana Luiza Maia, MD, PhD, of the thyroid section, endocrine division, Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre in Brazil, and colleagues evaluated 32 children and adolescents with differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC; mean age at diagnosis, 14.7 years) to determine potential prognostic factors.
