The distribution of goitre in the United Provinces. 5. Further clinical notes on endemic goitre, subthyroidism, cretinism and deaf-mutism in super-endemic areas of Gonda and Gorakhpur districts



The distribution of goitre in the United Provinces. 5. Further clinical notes on endemic goitre, subthyroidism, cretinism and deaf-mutism in super-endemic areas of Gonda and Gorakhpur districts



Ind. J. Med. Res, 21: 655-659



Clinical observations are recorded. The commonest treatment is the red iodide of mercury ointment. Iodine is also taken internally, but if discontinued the goitre will again appear unless goitre producing influences are removed. Cretinism did not appear until the family had resided for at least three generations in the endemic area.
