Patients with pituitary resistance to thyroid hormones (PRTH) exhibit features of hyperthyroidism due to normal sensitivity to thyroid hormones in some of the peripheral tissues. There is a lack of information in the literature on the long-term follow-up and treatment of patients with PRTH. Here, we present long-term (9 years) clinical and biochemical(More)
Resistance to thyroid hormone (RTH) is an inherited syndrome characterized by reduced tissue responsiveness to thyroid hormones. The main defects are due to mutations in thyroid hormone receptor beta (TRbeta). A male, term neonate was admitted because of indirect hyperbilirubinemia and polycythemia. Physical examination revealed ophtalmopathy. High serum T₄(More)
The D727E germline polymorphism in the thyroid-stimulating hormone receptor gene (TSHR) may cause genetic susceptibility to the development of goiter. Therefore, in this study we investigated allele frequencies and genotype distributions of the TSHR D727E polymorphism, their association with clinical parameters, and the development of goiter in the Turkish(More)
