We report here a case of a paediatric hyperthyroidism due to a micro-macro-follicular thyroid adenoma in the presence of heterozygous point mutation of TSH receptor (TSHr). We describe the case from the initial diagnosis, through laboratoristic examinations and imaging techniques, until the radical surgical treatment made by a mini-cervicotomic videoassisted technique. We also explained the genetic work-up from peripheral blood and thyroid adenoma tissue.
