34 Advances in Graves’ Disease and Other Hyperthyroid Disorders Sarcoidosis of the Thyroid Gland Sarcoidosis of the thyroid gland is a rare cause of thyrotoxicosis, which may occur in individuals with Graves’ disease and toxic multinodular goiter. Although this condition is most likely to affect affect young and middle-aged females, males and females of all ages may be affected. Because of the development of fibrosis, hypothyroidism is the most common result, although sarcoidos may also cause thyroiditis as well as hyperthyroidism.

There’s also evidence to suggest a genetic predisposition to the development of SAT. An association between SAT and the genetic marker HLA-Bw35 has been reported in two-thirds of both Chinese and Caucasians (Singer 1991, 64). For this reason, SAT is also seen in siblings, and new familial cases typically develop within a two-year period. SAT causes an initial hyperthyroid phase that lasts for about 4–10 weeks. This is frequently followed by a hypothyroid phase of similar duration, although the illness can persist for a year or longer, with most patients eventually becoming euthyroid.

Both PPT and sporadic thyroiditis may represent subacute forms of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Painless sporadic thyroiditis accounts for about 1 percent of all cases of thyrotoxicosis (Pearce et al. 2003). In this condition, thyroid dysfunction spontaneously resolves in most cases, although about 20 percent of patients will have residual conditions of chronic hypothyroidism. High titers of TPO antibodies are typically present, although the levels are not as high as those typically seen in Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
