Abstract

The diagnosis of GD is based on the detection of suppressed plasma TSH and TRAb [4]. However, there are patients in whom TRAb are not detected despite of having a highly suggestive clinic, hormonal profile and imaging tests. We describe 5 pediatric cases of this still little studied and understood clinical situation. The diagnosis of GD is based on the detection of suppressed plasma TSH and TRAb [4].
