Background: Grave’s disease is the commonest endocrine auto immune disorder in women it is characterized by diffuse enlargement of the thyroid gland associated with elevated serum thyroid hormones manifesting with clinical features of thyrotoxicosis. Other features are opthalmopathy, and acropachy. It is an IgG antibody mediated. Grave’s disease is one of the indications for thyroidectomy; the study reviewed our 3 year experience in the management of patients with the disease. Patients and Methods: We reviewed all patients with Diffused toxic goiter (Grave’s disease) managed in the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital (UMTH) between January 2010 and December 2014. Patients with emergency presentation (thyrocardia) were resuscitated and optimized. All patients were rendered euthyroid with carbimazole and propranolol on outpatient basis. Subtotal thyroidectomy under general anesthesia was done in all patients.


The Importance of Teaching and Learning English Words[]


English as a universal language is always ready to borrow new words from other languages and create new terms to represent new ideas. The duties of the English learners would be harder to control a large number of words on the one hand, and to understand from the texts on the other. There is a strong connection between vocabulary and comprehension. Readers with a stronger vocabulary ability can learn difficult or unfamiliar concepts better than can those with a weaker vocabulary ability (Baumann, Kame’Enui, & Ash, 2003). But, complete reliance on contexts to learn new words is not advisable because some natural contexts are nondirective or uninformative in that they do not direct readers toward any meaning of unknown words. They may lead readers to wrong conceptions of words.
