The Pediatric Thyroid Center at Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital cares for infants, children and adolescents with a broad range of thyroid problems that include congenital hypothyroidism, Graves’ disease, Hashimoto thyroiditis, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, thyroid nodules, multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) syndromes and thyroid cancer. It is the first center in the United States exclusively devoted to the care of children with thyroid conditions.

The team members include pediatric endocrinologists, surgeons, pathologists and radiologists. Pediatric Thyroid Center staff are national task force members in developing thyroid treatment guidelines for many different thyroid problems.

Finding better way to treat children with thyroid disorders is a major goal of the Pediatric Thyroid Center. Special research interests have focused on:

• Optimizing treatment of childhood Graves’ disease
• The development of new diagnostic approaches for thyroid disease and thyroid cancer
• The identification of genes that cause thyroid cancer
• Examination of the toxicity of thyroid medications.
• Determining risks of thyroid diseases and treatments to the mother and fetus
