In this work we have evaluated the quinagolida effectiveness in the treatment of it unites patient with (PRTH). The relationship among thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and free triiodothyronine (FT3) it was used as marker of the thyroid resistance and of the response to the treatment. The concentrations of TSH and FT3 were normalized after adding quinagolida to methimazole.
