  • Uncommon causes of thyrotoxicosis JOURNAL OF NUCLEAR MEDICINE Mittra, E. S., Niederkohr, R. D., Rodriguez, C., El-Maghraby, T., McDougall, I. R. 2008; 49 (2): 265-278


    Apart from the common causes of thyrotoxicosis, such as Graves' disease and functioning nodular goiters, there are more than 20 less common causes of elevated free thyroid hormones that produce the symptoms and signs of thyrotoxicosis. This review describes these rarer conditions and includes 14 illustrative patients. Thyrotropin and free thyroxine should be measured and, when the latter is normal, the free triiodothyronine level should be obtained. Measurement of the uptake of (123)I is recommended for most patients.
