Gliederung

Text

Introduction: Cancer of the thyroid gland is the most common cancer of the endocrine glands. Studies of individual authors about the prevalence of thyroid cancer are different, but everyone agrees that there is increase in thyroid cancer incidence.

Hypothesis: Affirmative hypothesis: four-year war period and wartime events had resulted in an increase in the incidence of thyroid neoplasia.

Null hypothesis: The war and four-year war period had the effect of changing the incidence of thyroid neoplasia.

Aims of study: To examine the morbidity of thyroid neoplasia and determine whether there was an increase in morbidity from neoplasms of the thyroid gland in the post-war period compared to pre-war period, based on analysis of histopathologic findings in tissue preparations of the thyroid gland in those time intervals.

Material and methods: The study involved two groups of histopathologic analysis of the thyroid gland in two established time periods (entailing four year post-war group and four year pre-war, control group).

Results: Malignant neoplasia of the thyroid gland in the postwar period was significantly more often verified in relation to the four-year period before the war.

Conclusions: Thyroid neoplasia is significantly increased in the tissue preparations of thyroid glands in post-war period compared to the period before the war.
