Autoimmune thyroid gland disorders are characterized by detection of anti-thyroid antibodies, primarily against thyroglobulin and/or microsomal thyroid antigens. Recently it has been shown that thyroid peroxidase (TPO) is the protein responsible for microsomal antigenicity. In addition to chronic thyroiditis, thyroid autoantibodies may be found in other thyroid disorders. These autoantibodies may also occur in apparently normal subjects.
