VELIZ L, Jesús  e  PINEDA V, Gustavo. Thyroid hemiagenesis associated to Basedow-Graves disease.: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2000, vol.128, n.8, pp.896-898. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872000000800009.

We report a 35 years old female with left lobe thyroid hemiagenesis who initially was euthyroid and then developed hyperthyroidism due to Graves disease. Hemiagenesis of the thyroid gland is a rare anomaly with an uncertain incidence; up to now 256 cases have been reported. The detection is often made by either clinical symptoms of thyroid dysfunction, by imaginological studies or surgical/pathological procedures. No explanation has been given for the development of this anomaly; left lobe aplasia and predominance of occurrence in women have been most frequently reported. (Rev Méd Chile 2000; 128: 896-8).

Palavras-chave : Graves disease; Hyperthyroidism; Thyroid diseases; Thyroid gland.
