Abstract

Introduction: A five years prospective study was conducted with the aim to observe the neurological manifestations in acute, subacute and chronic thyroiditis.

Materials and methods: A study on 26 patients was carried out over the span of 5 years. Clinical and paraclinical examinations were carried out every three months. The paraclinical exam included hormone dosing, ultrasound exams, thyroid scintigraphy, bio- psies, 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.
