Thyroid hemiagenesis prevalence was studied by neck ultrasound examination in 24,032 unselected 11- to 14-yr-old schoolchildren from southeastern Sicily. Twelve cases of thyroid hemiagenesis were identified, with a prevalence of 0.05%. The female to male ratio was 1:1.4. Thyroid hemiagenesis was always due to the absence (11 cases) or severe hypoplasia (1 case) of the left lobe. The hemiagenetic thyroid volume was within the normal total thyroid volume range normalized to age in 4 of 12 cases… CONTINUE READING
