BACKGROUND Thyrotoxicosis has multiple etiologies, manifestations, and potential therapies. Appropriate treatment requires an accurate diagnosis and is influenced by coexisting medical conditions and patient preference. This article describes evidence-based clinical guidelines for the management of thyrotoxicosis that would be useful to generalist and subspeciality physicians and others providing care for patients with this condition. METHODS The development of these guidelines was…

TLDR
This review summarized the KTA report on the contemporary practice patterns in the diagnosis and management of hyperthyroidism, and compared this report with guidelines from other countries.
Evaluating and managing patients with thyrotoxicosis.
TLDR
The clinical presentation and evaluation of a patient with thyrotoxicosis is outlined, with atypical presentations common in the elderly.
AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF CLINICAL ENDOCRINOLOGISTS AND AMERICAN COLLEGE OF ENDOCRINOLOGY POSITION STATEMENT ON THYROID DYSFUNCTION CASE FINDING.
TLDR
It is recommended that thyroid dysfunction should be frequently considered as a potential etiology for many of the nonspecific complaints that physicians face daily and advocated for an aggressive case-finding approach, based on identifying those persons most likely to have thyroid disease that will benefit from its treatment.
A prospective study on surgical management of thyrotoxicosis
TLDR
Surgery should be proposed as an immediate and completely effective solution for thyrotoxicosis, especially when compared with prolonged medical therapy, because it can provide a demonstrable improvement in the quality of life (QOL) of the patients.

Management of Pediatric Graves Disease: A Review.
TLDR
The diagnosis and treatment of pediatric patients with GD requires a multidisciplinary approach, involving pediatric specialists in the fields of endocrinology, ophthalmology, radiology, nuclear medicine, and surgery/otolaryngology.
Subclinical hyperthyroidism in the course of autonomous nodules - clinical evaluation.
TLDR
Most patients with SCH in the course of AFTN suffered from typical symptoms of overt hyperthyroidism; only every sixth patient was asymptomatic.
Management of Graves Thyroidal and Extrathyroidal Disease: An Update
  • G. Kahaly
  • Medicine, Biology

  • 2020
TLDR
A clear trend towards serological diagnosis and medical treatment of GD has emerged and systemic steroid treatment should be postponed during COVID-19 while local treatment and preventive measures are offered.
Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis in new-onset hyperthyroidism - a case report and review of the literature Paralisia periódica tireotóxica em hipertireoidismo recém-diagnosticado - um relato de caso e revisão da literatura
TLDR
Any patient that has a sudden muscle weakness associated with serum potassium abnormalities should be screened to hyperthyroidism, the authors suggest.
Aggressive Case Finding: A Clinical Strategy for the Documentation of Thyroid Dysfunction
TLDR
Aggressive case finding is defined as the process of identifying persons who are most likely to have thyroid disease, experience clinical consequences of the disease, and benefit from treatment, and the data support aggressive case finding to identify all degrees of hypothyroidism.

TLDR
Prospective multicenter studies are urgently needed to establish clear standards for the diagnosis and therapy of childhood hyperthyroidism in six pediatric endocrinological units in Germany.

These clinical practice guidelines summarize the recommendations of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists for the diagnostic evaluation of hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism and for
Thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy after treatment for Graves' hyperthyroidism with antithyroid drugs or iodine-131.
TLDR
Radioiodine treatment is a significant risk factor for development of TAO in Graves' hyperthyroidism and smokers treated with radioiodine had the overall highest risk for TAO.

TLDR
The updated 2010 AACE protocol emphasizes "informed judgment" and hybridizes EBM descriptors (study design type), qualifiers (study flaws), and subjective factors (such as risk, cost, and relevance) and introduces an electronic implementation component.
Relation between therapy for hyperthyroidism and the course of Graves' ophthalmopathy.
TLDR
Radioiodine therapy for Graves' hyperthyroidism is followed by the appearance or worsening of ophthalmopathy more often than is therapy with methimazole, and this can be prevented by the administration of prednisone.
Differences and similarities in the diagnosis and treatment of Graves' disease in Europe, Japan, and the United States.
TLDR
In general, ATA members used fewer diagnostic tests than did their European or Japanese colleagues, and there was consensus on the relative lack of a role for thyroidectomy except for narrow indications.

TLDR
The cases of two prototypical patients that are likely to be seen frequently in any busy clinical endocrinologist’s office will be presented and a series of questions about each case will be raised and then answered using level A evidence, wherever possible.
Diagnosis and treatment of thyrotoxicosis in childhood. A European questionnaire study.
TLDR
Antithyroid drugs (ATD) were the basic initial treatment of choice given by 99% of the respondents for children with uncomplicated Graves' disease and surgery was considered the treatment ofchoice in children with an adenoma.
Treatment of lymphocytic thyroiditis with spontaneously resolving hyperthyroidism (silent thyroiditis).
TLDR
Five patients were found who had seven episodes of SRH while receiving thyroid hormone suppression therapy after having verified chronic LT and LT-SRH, indicating that thyroid suppression with thyroid hormone may be ineffective in preventing this disease.
A prospective study of the effects of radioiodine therapy for hyperthyroidism in patients with minimally active graves' ophthalmopathy.
TLDR
Radioiodine is not associated with deterioration of GO in patients with minimally active eye disease when postradioiodine hypothyroidism is prevented, and the eye disease improved in four patients, most likely attributable to the natural course of the disease.
