Abstract

This article deals with the question of the influence of preparations that contain pharmacological doses of iodine on the functional activity of the thyroid gland. In the practice of a cardiologist amiodarone and x-ray contrasting substances are often used that may induce thyroid disorders in many ways, followed by hypothyroidism and thyrotoxicosis development.
