ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 49-year-old woman who was referred to the hospital for hyperthyroidism that was difficult to control despite methimazole therapy. Her differential diagnosis for inappropriate secretion of serum thyroidstimulating hormone (TSH) with high free thyroxine (FT) involved interference from heterophilic antibodies and resistance to thyroid hormone. It reports that somatostatin analogue treatment in eight studies found normalization of thyroid hormone patients.
