Hashimoto's thyroiditis, also referred to as autoimmune thyroiditis, is characterized by sexual dimorphism, suggesting an important role of sex hormones in its development. No interventional study has investigated whether drugs exerting antiandrogen properties affect thyroid antibody titres and thyroid function tests in subjects with autoimmune thyroiditis.

Autoimmune (Hashimoto's thyroiditis) is characterized by a strong female preponderance, which may suggest that sex hormones have an impact on thyroid autoimmunity. The aim of this study was to investi...
Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) is a common autoimmune disease of unknown origin. However, viral infections have been implicated as triggers for autoimmunity. Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class I presen...
To assess the prevalence of Hashimoto thyroiditis (HT) in primary thyroid lymphoma (PTL) and whether it differs between mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma and diffuse large B-cell lymph...
Hashimoto's thyroiditis is the most common cause of hypothyroidism. Patients usually respond well to oral synthetic thyroxine (levothyroxine), however for unknown reasons some individuals present with...
The association between autoimmune atrophic gastritis and thyroid disorders has been observed since the early 1960s and the expression "thyrogastric syndrome" was coined to indicate the presence of th...
Thyroid hormone (TH) and fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF-21) are reported to share common metabolic pathways and underlying mechanisms in terms of energy balance, thus affecting both ther...
Autoimmune thyroiditis and goitres are frequent pathologies. On a predisposing genetic ground, environmental factors are potentially at their origin. Viral infections are the main factors ...
Increase prevalence of thyroid autoimmunity is found in patients with chronic urticaria. About 5-34% of chronic urticaria patients is associated with the presence of thyroid autoimmunity w...
Hashimoto Thyroiditis (HT) and Graves Disease (GD) are known to be caused by abnormal immune response against self cells and tissues. Epigenetics is a novel field of biology studying the m...
Autoimmune thyroiditis (AITD) mainly includes Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) and Grave's disease (GD). Studies have shown that autoimmune thyroiditis is closely related to microbial disorder...
Inflammatory diseases of the THYROID GLAND. Thyroiditis can be classified into acute (THYROIDITIS, SUPPURATIVE), subacute (granulomatous and lymphocytic), chronic fibrous (Riedel's), chronic lymphocytic (HASHIMOTO DISEASE), transient (POSTPARTUM THYROIDITIS), and other AUTOIMMUNE THYROIDITIS subtypes.
Transient autoimmune thyroiditis occurring in the POSTPARTUM PERIOD. It is characterized by the presence of high titers of AUTOANTIBODIES against THYROID PEROXIDASE and THYROGLOBULIN. Clinical signs include the triphasic thyroid hormone pattern: beginning with THYROTOXICOSIS, followed with HYPOTHYROIDISM, then return to euthyroid state by 1 year postpartum.
Chronic autoimmune thyroiditis, characterized by the presence of high serum thyroid AUTOANTIBODIES; GOITER; and HYPOTHYROIDISM.
Cell surface proteins that bind pituitary THYROTROPIN (also named thyroid stimulating hormone or TSH) and trigger intracellular changes of the target cells. TSH receptors are present in the nervous system and on target cells in the thyroid gland. Autoantibodies to TSH receptors are implicated in thyroid diseases such as GRAVES DISEASE and Hashimoto disease (THYROIDITIS, AUTOIMMUNE).
Inflammatory disease of the THYROID GLAND due to autoimmune responses leading to lymphocytic infiltration of the gland. It is characterized by the presence of circulating thyroid antigen-specific T-CELLS and thyroid AUTOANTIBODIES. The clinical signs can range from HYPOTHYROIDISM to THYROTOXICOSIS depending on the type of autoimmune thyroiditis.
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck, just above thecollarbone and is an endocrine gland that make hormones. These Thyroid hormones control the rate of many activities in the body, including how fast the body burns calories and how fast th...
Autoimmune disorders are conditions that occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue. There are more than 80 different types of autoimmune disorders. Normally the immune system's white blood cells help protect ...
