Thyroid dysfunction: An adolescent gynecologic perspective

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Abnormalities of thyroid function may cause irregularity or absence of the menstrual period, inhibit pubertal development and linear growth, and suppress reproductive function. Furthermore, pregnancy may itself affect thyroid function. New information is presented about the diagnosis and treatment of various forms of congenital and acquired thyroid disease. Issues ranging from the molecular biology of thyroid hormone resistance to public health measures developed to eliminate endemic goiter are addressed.
