Abstract

Context: Aging brings with it physiological and pathological changes in different organs and systems, the thyroid being no exception.

Purpose: To carry out a narrative review on thyroid pathology in the elderly.

Methodology: Reviews were carried out in databases (Pubmed, Scielo) in the last 15 years, with keywords such as Graves' disease, aging, old age, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism.

Results: Thyroid function presents changes in aging typical of physiology; however, in subclinical or frankly established pathology, the clinical manifestations of the elderly may vary compared to other age groups.

Conclusions: In the elderly, it is important to know the physiological changes, those frankly pathological, as well as those that are in the gray area, being a diagnostic challenge and hence the importance of identifying them, both in hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism to make a correct diagnosis. approach in this population group. That is why relevant information and key points are presented for the best approach to these patients.
