Hyperthyroidism

This image compares a normal thyroid gland (a) anatomy with a hypothyroidism thyroid gland (b). The histology images reveal in the abnormal thyroid gland, there is less thyroid hormone produced due to irregular epithelium on the surface of the follicles. The researchers in this report found that once thyroid stimulating hormone was added to the hypothyroid follicles, the epithelium became more columnar and the lumens became smaller, similar to healthy thyroid follicles.
