Introduction: A prospective study was conducted over the span of 5 years, with the aim to observe the neurological manifesta- tions in non-autoimmune hyperthyroidism goiter.
Materials and methods: In a study group of 106 cases of hyperthyroidism including various etiologies, were included 60 cases of non-autoimmune hyperthyroidism goiter, representing 56.60% of the cases of hyperthyroidism followed. Clinical and paraclinical examinations were carried out every three months. The paraclinical exam included hormone dosing, ultrasound exams, thyroid scinti- graphy, biopsies, brain computed tomography and blood biochemistry tests.
Results: A large amount of detailed data was collected over a relatively long span of time.
Conclusions: The collected data largely corresponds to the reference literature. It is often the case that patients first address the neurologist, who has to diagnose the thyroid disease and its neurological manifestations.
