Sakremath Rajesh , Moran Carla , Lyons Greta , Boelaert Kristien , Chatterjee Krishna , Mohamed Zainaba , Rajanayagam Odelia

Background: Thyroid hormones act via receptors (TRα; TRβ) encoded by separate genes (THRA, THRB). Mutations in THRA are a recently-recognised cause of Resistance to Thyroid Hormone alpha (RTHα), a disorder with tissue-specific hypothyroidism but near-normal thyroid function tests.Aim: We describe the youngest recorded case of RTHa, in a 2yr old boy with disproportionate short stature, ...

Background: Resistance to thyroid hormone beta (THRβ) is a clinical spectrum which varies in presentation even between individuals with the same mutation. Life-threatening cardiac dysfunction is recognized in homozygous THRβ state but never reported in cases of inherited heterozygous THRβ defects.Aim: We report the first case of familial inherited heterozygous (THRB) beta mutation presenting with ...

Background: Graves’ Disease (GD) is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism in children and develops because of stimulation of the thyroid gland by TSH receptor auto-antibodies (TSHR Ab). An increased risk of obesity has been described in both adults and children following initiation of anti-thyroid drug (ATD) therapy but the longer term impact of GD and it’s treatment on physique in children is unclear.Aims:</strong...
