Test ID: THYRO    
Thyrotropin Receptor Antibody, Serum

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Recommended first-line test for detection of thyrotropin receptor (TSHR) antibodies, and used in the following situations:

-Differential diagnosis of etiology of thyrotoxicosis in patients with ambiguous clinical findings and/or contraindicated (eg, pregnant or breast-feeding) or nondiagnostic thyroid radioisotope scans

-Diagnosis of clinically suspected Graves disease (eg, extrathyroidal manifestation of Graves disease include endocrine exophthalmos, pretibial myxedema, thyroid acropachy) in patients with normal thyroid function tests

-Determining the risk of neonatal thyrotoxicosis in a fetus of a pregnant female with active or past active Graves disease

-Differential diagnosis of gestational thyrotoxicosis versus first trimester manifestation or recurrence of Graves disease

-Assessing the risk of Graves disease relapse after antithyroid drug treatment
