Riassunto

La letteratura riporta una crescente frequenza di autoanticorpi antiormoni tiroidei nelle malattie autoimmuni della tiroide, come la tiroidite di Hashimoto e il morbo di Basedow, e in malattie autoimmuni non tiroidee. Non si deve quindi trascurare la possibile presenza di tali anticorpi in pazienti con patologia autoimmune, non solo tiroidea, specie quando i risultati dei dosaggi ormonali appaiono incoerenti fra di essi e con lo stato clinico.
