Autoimmune hypothyroidism after unrelated haematopoietic stem cell transplantation in children.

Author information

Department of Pediatrics, Prince of Wales Hospital, The Chinese University of Hong Kong.


We describe two pediatric patients who developed autoimmune hypothyroidism 2 years after unrelated allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The causes of post-transplantation autoimmune hypothyroidism are probably multiple. In these two patients, the presence of chronic graft-versus-host disease may be the most significant contributing factor.
