Increased serum thyroglobulin levels in patients with nontoxic goiter.

Abstract

Thyroglobulin (Tg) levels were found to be elevated in 30 to 35 patients with euthyroid sporadic goiter and in 15 of 37 patients with euthyroid endemic goiter. The elevated Tg levels in the goitrous patients did not correlate with either goiter size, TSH levels, or urinary iodine excretion, but did correlate with the triiodothyronine to thyroxine ratio.
