Antibodies producing complement-mediated thyroid cytotoxicity in patients with atrophic or goitrous
Hashimoto's thyroiditis: countrywide screening of goitrous
healthy young girls in post-iodization phase in India.
The author suggested that these lesions more likely represented "metastases of a hypernephroma" (ie, renal cell carcinoma clear cell type) than a degenerative goitrous
autoimmune thyroiditis in a pediatric population: a longitudinal study.
Calcitonin levels are similar in goitrous
euthyroid patients with or without thyroid antibodies, as well as in hypothyroid patients.
According to the Chinese standards that define water iodine value less than 10g/L as iodine-deficient district, and according to an Indian study where iodine content of drinking water in goitrous

areas, iodine content in Saudi water is still found low.
Assessment of therapy in goitrous

It is unclear what factors might be responsible for stronger associations among rural compared with urban residents and in nongoitrous compared with goitrous

The comparative study of iron was carried out by taking the biological samples such as serum, urine, serum thyroid hormones, thyroid stimulating hormone, free triiodothyroxine, and free thyroxin of goitrous
female patients to find out the deficiency of iron in women [13, 14].
