With a toxic nodule there is a single nodule making the extra amount of thyroid hormone. The common endogenous causes of hyperthyroidism are Graves disease, toxic multinodular goiter, toxic adenoma, and painless thyroiditis (Table 1).1–9 Graves disease, the most common cause of hyperthyroidism in the United States,2 is an autoimmune disorder in which thyroid-stimulating antibodies activate thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) receptors, triggering thyroid hormone synthesis. The role of imaging in Graves' disease: a cost-effectiveness analysis. Pearce EN, McGeoch SC, Incidence, clinical characteristics and outcome of congestive heart failure as the initial presentation in patients with primary hyperthyroidism. 23. Besides general anesthesia risk, thyroidectomy carries a risk of inadvertently injuring parathyroid glands and recurrent laryngeal nerves.34, Antithyroid medications can control hyperthyroidism, but do not induce remission of hyperthyroidism associated with toxic adenoma or toxic multinodular goiter.

Excess estrogen from pregnancy or estrogen therapy leads to elevated levels of thyroxine-binding globulin, which manifests as elevated total T4 and T3 levels while TSH and free T4 levels remain normal (Table 3).20,21 These findings do not indicate hyperthyroidism and require no treatment.21. Antithyroid medication (methimazole [Tapazole] or propylthiouracil), No exposure to radiation or to surgical risks, Propylthiouracil is safe for the fetus in the first trimester of pregnancy, Agranulocytosis, hepatotoxicity (especially with propylthiouracil), rash, Methimazole can cause aplasia cutis and other birth defects in the first trimester of pregnancy, No exposure to potential adverse effects of an antithyroid medication or to surgical risks, Aggravation of Graves orbitopathy, especially in smokers, Permanent hypothyroidism (occurs in most patients), Failure to cure hyperthyroidism if the radioactive iodine dose is insufficient, Risk of Graves disease recurrence even after successful treatment, No exposure to adverse effects of an antithyroid medication or to radiation, Little chance of Graves disease recurrence, Risk of damaging recurrent laryngeal nerve leading to hoarse voice (if damage is unilateral) or of respiratory distress (if damage is bilateral), Risk of inadvertent damage or removal of parathyroid glands leading to permanent hypoparathyroidism, Information from: Abraham P, Avenell A, Park CM, Watson WA, Bevan JS. Toxic nodule or toxic multinodular goiter refers to one or more nodules (typically benign growths) in the thyroid gland that make thyroid hormone without responding to the signal to keep thyroid hormone balanced. Huang CH, Avenell A, Graves’ disease is an autoimmune thyroid disorder with an unknown etiology. 2011;99:39–51. The result is the diffuse enlargement of the thyroid gland. Overview and Key Difference 38. Burch HB, Sibling recurrence risk in autoimmune thyroid disease. Gozu HI, et al. The end result is that too much thyroid hormone can be produced and released into the bloodstream, resulting in hyperthyroidism.

Moderate to severe Graves orbitopathy is a relative contraindication, especially in patients who smoke, because radioactive iodine may exacerbate the eye disease.32,33 In mild cases of Graves orbitopathy, radioactive iodine ablation can be performed with concomitant glucocorticoid therapy.

Noh JY, Basaria S, Because use of propylthiouracil has a higher risk of causing severe liver injury, as highlighted in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's boxed warning, methimazole is preferred except during the first trimester of pregnancy (can cause birth defects) and in patients with an adverse reaction to methimazole.28,29 For patients using methimazole, the prevalence of agranulocytosis is 0.17%, the incidence of hepatitis is 3.17 per 1,000 person-years, and the incidence of acute hepatic failure is 0.32 per 1,000 person-years.30,31 Patients should be instructed to discontinue medication use and contact their physician if they develop jaundice, acholic stools, dark urine, arthralgias, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, or sore throat.
