Abstract

Objective The natural history of Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) and isolated hyperthyrotropinaemia (IH) is not well defined. We therefore studied the natural course of patients with HT and IH and looked for possible prognostic factors. Design This is retrospective cross-sectional study. Patients Three hundred and twenty-three patients with HT (88 boys and 235 girls) and 59 with IH (30 boys and 29 girls), mean age 9·9 ± 3·8 years were included in the study.
