Treatment of childhood Graves' disease

Author and Disclosure Information

Abstract

Graves' disease is the most common form of hyperthyroidism in children. Because of complications with either thyroid surgery or antithyroid drug therapy, the authors prefer high-dose radioiodine as the initial treatment of choice. Long-term follow-up studies have not shown an increased incidence of malignancy in the patients or birth defects in their offspring.
