Özet

Introduction: Lithium has many effects on thyroid physiology. Although these side effects have been known for a long time, large sample studies of lithium-treated patients using ultrasonography are lacking. The aim of this study is to investigate the detailed thyroid mor-phologies, hormone levels, and antibodies of lithium-treated patients compared with healthy controls.
