INFANTE AMOROS, Adalberto  y  TURCIOS TRISTA, Silvia Elena. Hyperthyroidism. Rev Cubana Endocrinol [online]. 2012, vol.23, n.3, pp.213-220. ISSN 1561-2953.

Hyperthyroidism has a clinical picture characterized by overproduction of thyroid hormones by the thyroid gland and is derived from a number of causes. The most frequent clinical presentation is toxic diffuse goiter or Graves Basedow's disease. It is a syndrome with thyrotoxicosis, goiter and extrathyroid manifestations such as orbitopathy that occasionally develops regardless of the thyroid disease. Questioning, physical exam and estimation of thyroid hormones are enough to confirm the diagnosis. In addition to adequate hygienic-dietary orientation, the basis pillars of the treatment are drugs, radioiodine and surgery, but indication of treatment should be personalized to avoid inadequate and unnecessary behaviors.

Palabras clave : hyperthyroidism; thyrotoxicosis; thyroids; I131; toxic diffuse goiter.
