Children may be at increased risk for malignant thyroid nodules compared with adults, and this may call for new treatment strategies for some types of nodules based on age, according to findings published in Thyroid. “The rarity of pediatric thyroid nodules may limit the frequency with which pediatric pathologists interpret thyroid cytology, leading to variability in cytological classification,” Christine E. Cherella, MD, instructor in pediatrics in the division of endocrinology at Boston Children’s Hospital, and colleagues wrote. “This problem is particularly salient.

Researchers estimated that nearly 1,500 cases of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus, or MERS-CoV, and around 500 related deaths may have been averted since 2016 through global efforts to detect infections and reduce transmission. “We have noticed a decline in case detections since 2016 and suspected that this was due to efforts in countries to reduce human-to-human transmission in hospitals. This study is our attempt to quantify the investment in prevention and response efforts in terms of cases and deaths averted,” Maria D. Van Kerkhove, PhD, an infectious disease.
