Graves’ disease The constant stimulation of TSH receptors in Graves’ disease causes a goitre in a similar manner to iodine deficiency with similar characteristics. The gland becomes very vascular, to the extent that a bruit can be heard using a stethoscope. The goitre formed is usually slightly nodular, but it may be tender if the inflammation is acute. Thyroid gland neoplasia Thyroid lumps are common and usually benign; however, they must be investigated. Solitary thyroid lumps are found in 5% of women and it is very difficult to distinguish between benign (80%) and malignant (20%) on clinical grounds.

The main suppression tests for anterior pituitary levels are to measure: • GH in response to an oral glucose tolerance test, which normally suppresses GH levels • ACTH in response to dexamethasone, a steroid that normally suppresses CRH and ACTH release. Treatment There are four methods of treating excess hormone production, but they all carry the risk of causing hypopituitarism: • Bromocriptine (dopamine agonist) to reduce prolactin secretion • Octreotide (synthetic somatostatin) to reduce GH secretion • Surgical removal of pituitary adenoma • Irradiation to prevent adenoma recurrence.

The eye disease may precede the onset of thyroid dysfunction, and does not respond to correction of thyroid status. Treatment involves radiotherapy and surgery. Graves’ disease is diagnosed by detection of autoantibodies along with low TSH and raised T4 and/or T3. 32 The thyroid autoantibodies, thyroglobulin antibody (TgAb) and thyroid peroxidase (TPO) antibody, are present in both Graves’ disease and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. However, thyroid receptor antibody (TRAb) or thyroid-stimulating hormone receptor (TSH-R) antibodies are specific to Graves’ disease.
