AUTOIMMUNITY part 29

Immune 4

 

Case 3. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis :

Type IV Autoimmune disease

COMMENT

There may be overlap with Grave’s disease, which is manifested by agonistic (activating) antibodies reactive with the TSHR. Initially, this antibody may activate the thyroid into oversecretion of thyroid hormone (seen as increased  levels of T4), leading to hyperthyroidism. Eventually, this too may cause destruction of the thyroid gland, resulting in an  hypothyroid  state.
