Autoimmune thyroiditis is the most frequent autoimmune disease. We analyzed the association between the presence and value of titer of anti-thyroid antibodies (atbs) and spontaneous abortion (SA). Moreover, we analyzed the association between TSH values and the presence of anti-thyroids atbs. We tested anti-TPO and anti-TG atbs in 257 women: 85 probands, 87 pregnant women with normal pregnancy outcome, and 85 with SA. We tested TSH in 87 pregnant women with normal pregnancy outcome. No

In women with positive atbs titer, anti-TPO and anti-TG values were higher in SA group compared with normal pregnancy outcome group. A significant threshold was reached only for anti-TG atbs. TSH values were higher in pregnant women with positive anti-TPO and anti-TG values compared with those with a negative atbs titer. In pregnant women with positive anti-thyroid atbs titers, spontaneous abortion group patients have higher anti-TG titers than women with normal pregnancy outcome. TSH values are higher in the group of patients with positive anti-TPO and anti-TG atbs titers compared with the group of patients with negative anti-TPO and anti-TG values.
