Abstract

FERNANDES, Nurimar Conceição  and  CAMPOS, Márcia Maria Cajueiro. Childhood vitiligo and thyroid disease. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2009, vol.84, n.2, pp.200-202. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962009000200017.

The association of vitiligo / thyroid disease in childhood is debatable; 50 children with vitiligo and 40 without it were submitted to serum dosage of antithyroid antibodies and thyrostimulating hormone. One case (test group) and one control showed a serum titer of TSH above the normal limit; vitiligo did not represent a greater risk for thyroid disease.

Keywords : Antibodies; Child; Thyroid gland; Thyrotropin; Vitiligo.
