Abstract

Graves’ disease (GD) is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism in pediatric patients. Most pediatric thyroid cancer is differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). The two diseases can be treated using different methods, such as antithyroid drug, radioactive iodine (RAI), and surgery for GD and surgery and RAI for DTC. RAI can be used to treat pediatric GD and DTC. In the article, we reviewed the RAI application in pediatric GD and DTC.

Keywords: differentiated thyroid cancer; Graves’ disease; pediatric
