Clinical Problems in Thyroid Disease

  • Creswell J. Eastman


Several interesting and controversial topics have been grouped together in this symposium. These topics are not related, but each is clinically relevant and represents an area where significant advances have occurred over the past few years. Experts will review our current knowledge of the effects of transplacental passage of maternal immunoglobulins on neonatal thyroid function; the nature of the binding protein abnormalities in familial dysalbuminemic hyperthyroxinemia (FDH) and kindred syndromes, and their effects on thyroid function; the diverse effects of the antiarrhythmic agent amiodarone on thyroid function; and the experimental evidence relating to the efficacy of radiolabeled antithyroglobulin antibodies in the detection and treatment of metastatic thyroid cancer. The latter will not be discussed further, as it is preliminary data and will be fully reviewed in the symposium.
