Graves’ Disease in Children

Specialists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone are experienced in diagnosing and treating children with Graves’ disease, an autoimmune condition that pushes the thyroid gland—and metabolism—into overdrive. Without treatment, the condition can lead to impaired vision and trigger an abnormal heart rhythm.

Our endocrinologists work with radiologists specializing in thyroid imaging to make a diagnosis. A team of cardiologists, ophthalmologists, and other specialists collaborate to ensure that your child receives comprehensive treatment for symptoms of Graves’ disease.
