Resumen

MARRERO RODRIGUEZ, María Teresa. Clinical usefulness of hormonal and immunological tests for the evaluation of thyroid diseases. Rev Cubana Endocrinol [online]. 2012, vol.23, n.3, pp.248-255. ISSN 1561-2953.

Thyroid diseases are a significant health problem affecting a high percentage of the population. The biochemical tests are the fundamental pillar for diagnosis and follow-up. The development of second and third-generation assays has represented a great advance in diagnosing these diseases. The text covers the tests to diagnose and treat a number of thyroid diseases, and provides the reader with updated biochemical and clinical information in sections about the clinical usefulness of total and free thyroid hormone determinations, antithyroid antibodies, human thyrotropin and thyroglobulin. In this way, it can offer both the lab and the physician a general overview of the usefulness and the current capability of these tests.

Palabras clave : thyroid dysfunctions; clinical usefulness; assays; total and free thyroid hormones; antithyroid antibodies; human thyrotropin; thyroglobulin.
