Thyroid volume of 1397 German and 303 Swedish adults were estimated by sonography. Thyroid size of 6-16 year old Germans (n = 619) was determined and compared with findings on palpation. Thyroid volume was more than twice as great in German (21.4 +/- 15.6 ml, mean +/- SD) than in Swedish adults (10.1 +/- 4.9 ml). The echopattern was abnormal in 16% of the Germans and in 3.6% of the Swedes. German children have a thyroid volume ranging from 1.8 +/- 0.4 ml at 6 years to 10.8 +/- 6.0 ml at 16… CONTINUE READING
