TO STUDY LEVEL OF ANTITHYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODIES IN CASE OF AUTOIMMUNE THYROIDITIS
Keywords:Antithyroglobulin, Antibodies & Thyroiditis.
Background & Method: The present study titled “To study level of Antithyroglobulin Antibodies in case of Autoimmune Thyroiditis” was conducted among the patients at Amaltas Institute of Medical Sciences. Dewas Patients coming to any clinical department with thyroid swelling during the study period were randomly selected for the study. After complete history and thorough clinical examination, FNAC was being performed with a 22 gauge needle in 10 ml syringe with or without USG guidance as per requirement.
Result: In the present study, all the cases presented with a neck swelling. 71 (71%) out of the 100 cases had painful swelling while 29 (29%) presented with painless swelling. The levels of antithyroglobulin antibodies were found to be above 100 IU/ml in all the cases studied. 35 cases had levels between 100-500, 58 between 501-1000 and 7 above 1000 IU/ml.
Conclusion: The cytomorphological details in cases of autoimmune thyroiditis, to study the level of antithyroglobulin antibodies and to correlate the cytological findings with clinical presentation and antithyroglobulin antibodies. The present study could not prove any statistical significance of the association of antithyroglobulin antibodies, yet the levels of these antibodies are essential as a part of thyroid work up of clinically diagnosed patients.
