          Abstract

          Hereditary (familial) nonautoimmune hyperthyroidism (FNAH) is caused by activating thyroid-stimulating hormone (thyrotropin) receptor (TSHR) germline mutations. We describe a family with recurrent thyrotoxicosis and goiter across three generations, including an 8-year-old girl.
