Hyperthyroidism in pregnancy is an uncommon disease, involving less than 1% of pregnancies. The recognition of hyperthyroidism may be elusive as some sign and symptoms may be attributed to the state of pregnancy itself. Furthermore, the diagnosis of hyperthyroidism is sometimes challenging and treatment must take into account not only the mother but also the fetus' health. A carefully tailored treatment is necessary to avoid or reduce the risks of complications associated with uncontrolled disease which are represented by spontaneous abortion, congenital abnormalities, preeclampsia, preterm birth, low birth weight, placental abruption, neonatal thyroid dysfunction, and perinatal mortality. The Italian Thyroid Association (AIT) and Italian Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AME) constituted an ad hoc committee that developed clinical practice recommendations for diagnosis and treatment of hyperthyroidism in pregnancy. The review and recommendations have been based on a comprehensive analysis of the current literature and from the consensus of experts.
