Purpose Graves’ disease (GD) can present as an isolated disease (iGD) or in association with other autoimmune diseases (aGD). The aim of this study, performed in two Endocrine referral centers settled in different geographical areas of Italy, was to compare the anthropometric, clinical, and biochemical phenotype of iGD patients with that of the aGD ones.

Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndromes Autoimmune polyendocrine syndromes comprise a diverse group of clinical entities involving functional impairment of multiple endocrine glands due to loss of immune tolerance. This article reviews recent discoveries as well as approaches to the care of affected patients.

Graves’ disease (GD) is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism worldwide. Current therapeutic options for GD include antithyroid drugs (ATD), radioactive iodine, and thyroidectomy. ATD treatment is generally well accepted by patients and clinicians due to some advantages including normalizing thyroid function in a short time, hardly causing hypothyroidism, and ameliorating immune disorder while avoiding radiation exposure and invasive procedures. However, the relatively high recurrence rate is...

Objective The Merseburg triad (hyperthyroidism, goiter, and orbitopathy) characterizes classical description of Graves’ disease (GD). Aim of this observational, longitudinal study was to evaluate the current clinical features of newly diagnosed GD in Italy.

The immunologic processes involved in Graves’ disease (GD) have one unique characteristic – the autoantibodies to the TSH receptor (TSHR) – which have both linear and conformational epitopes. Three types of TSHR antibodies (stimulating, blocking, and cleavage) with different functional capabilities have been described in GD patients, which induce different signaling effects varying from thyroid cell proliferation to thyroid cell death. The establishment of animal models of GD by TSHR antibody tr...
