The differential diagnosis of the various forms of inappropriate secretion of TSH (IST), i.e. generalized thyroid hormone resistance (GRTH), selective pituitary resistance [non-neoplastic IST (nnIST)], and tumoral pituitary TSH hypersecretion [neoplastic IST (nIST)], mainly rests on clinical observation, skull imaging, and measurement of several parameters… CONTINUE READING
