Sommario

Le principali patologie autoimmuni della tiroide in età pediatrica sono rappresentate dalla tiroidite cronica autoimmune o tiroidite di Hashimoto (HT) e dalla malattia di Graves-Basedow (GD), entrambe caratterizzate dalla presenza in circolo di anticorpi anti-tiroide, dall’infiltrazione del tessuto tiroideo da parte di cellule T e B autoreattive e da qualche alterazione della normale funzionalità tiroidea (ipertiroidismo nella GD, eutiroidismo o ipotiroidismo subclinico, con possibile evoluzione verso l’ipotiroidismo franco nella HT). La crescente frequenza di queste malattie è legata a un loro effettivo incremento, ma anche alla maggiore disponibilità di indagini diagnostiche efficaci.
