Paediatric thyroidology


European Thyroid Journal paediatric thyroidology special collection


The European Thyroid Journal (ETJ) publishes papers reporting original research in basic, translational and clinical thyroidology. The journal is fully open-access, ensuring the highest impact for authors publishing in ETJ.

There are clear challenges to managing thyroid disorders in children and young people including more aggressive disease and greater concerns about the long-term effects of therapy. This special topic collection on pediatric thyroid disease brings together high quality articles on the management of diverse aspects of paediatric thyroid diseases.


Comments from Editor-in-Chief Professor Simon Pearce – University of Newcastle

"The management of thyroid disease in childhood holds special challenges and children cannot be treated as small adults. Europe is home to many of the world’s leading authorities on paediatric thyroidology and this special topic collection from European Thyroid Journal includes some important papers including the recent ETA guidelines on management of paediatric Graves’ disease. I hope you enjoy reading the collection."
