May-August 2010, 7(2):52-57

Clinical and biochemical thyrotoxicosis persisted on anti thyroid drug (ATD) Carbimazole treatment and thyroid function tests showed inappropriately normal TSH with raised free T' and free T . After methodological interferences were ruled out, TSH-secreting pituitary adenoma or thyroid hormone resistance was suspected. After further biochemical and radiological investigations including free alpha glycoprotein subunit (SL-GSU) measurement and MB! scan of brain a diagnosis TSH secreting macro adenoma was suggested.

Post operatively pituitary radiation treatment was given with which her disease had stabilized and she had marked clinical and investigational improvement.
