Medical Definition of Thyroid hormone resistance syndrome

1. An inherited syndrome of peripheral resistance to thyroid hormones, transmitted as an autosomal recessive trait, characterised by increased serum concentrations of thyroxine and triiodothyronine, increased thyroid hormone binding ratio, and normal to slightly increased thyroid-stimulating hormone and its response to thyrotropin-releasing hormone. The affected persons are euthyroid to slightly hypothyroid. The absence of hypermetabolism and the presence of possible hypothyroidism indicate the existence of partial resistance to the peripheral action of thyroid hormone. (12 Dec 1998)
