Aim: To study the effect of thyroxine treatment on the size of thyroid nodules in children with Hashimoto’s thyroiditisPatients and methods: Twenty-two girls and 6 boys (78.6/21.4%) were followed for 2 years under thyroxine therapy, at mean dose 1.6±0.4 μg/kg per day. Diagnosis of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis was based on the high value of either antithyroid antibodies, ATPO or ATG. Age at presentation was 10.6±2.0 year (6.2–13.6...
