Patients with discordant thyroid function tests (TFTs) are common clinical conundrums for the practising paediatric and adult endocrinologist. In order to avoid unnecessary investigation and treatment, a structured approach to the work up is required. During this session I will use a case based approach to review common causes of discordant TFTs, such as confounding physiological and pathophysiological factors, analytical errors, binding protein abnormalities and genetic causes. I will also provide a practical algorithm to the initial investigation and further work up of such patients.
