Abstract: Resumo: O objetivo deste estudo de corte transversal foi comparar a prevalência de doença tiroideana auto-imune e disfunção tiroideana entre mulheres portadoras de endometriose e um grupo de controle. Foram avaliadas 148 mulheres, com diagnóstico cirúrgico de endometriose, acompanhadas no Ambulatório de Endometriose do Centro de Atenção Integral à Saúde da Mulher da Universidade Estadual de Campinas, no período de dezembro de 2005 a abril de 2006, e comparadas a 158 mulheres atendidas no Ambulatório de Planejamento Familar da mesma intituição e no mesmo período. As pacientes foram entrevistadas durante uma de suas consultas nos respectivos Ambulatórios. Foram avaliadas: i) a função tiroideana através das dosagens dos hormônios Tiroestimulante e Tiroxina livre, e ii) a presença de doença tiroideana auto-imune através dos anticorpos anti-tiroglobulina e anti-tiroperoxidase. A associação entre as variáveis independentes, o grupo de estudo e as doenças tiroidianas foi avaliada através dos testes qui-quadrado e exato de Fisher, teste de Mann-Whitney e cálculo de odds ratio com seu respectivo intervalo de confiança 95%. A prevalência de hipotiroidismo foi de 12,2% (18 mulheres) no grupo com endometriose e 7,8% (12 mulheres) no grupo de controle (OR 1,49; IC 95%, 0,69 ¿ 3,2). A prevalência de hipotiroidismo auto-imune foi de 6,0% (9/148) e 5,0% (8/158), nos dois grupos, respectivamente (p <0,005). Identificamos 4,0% (6 mulheres) de hipotiroidismo instalado entre as mulheres com endometriose e 3,2% (5 casos) nas mulheres do grupo de controle. A prevalência de doença tiroidiana auto-imune foi de 8,8% (13/148 mulheres) entre as mulheres com endometriose e 15,8% (25/158) entre as mulheres no grupo de controle (OR 0,52; IC 95%, 0,25 ¿ 1,06). Em conclusão, os resultados obtidos neste estudo não sustentam a hipótese de que mullheres com endometriose apresentam maior prevalência de disfunção tiroidiana ou doença tiroidiana autoimune. Assim, entendemos não haver necessidade de rastreamento diferenciado para hipotiroidismo ou para disfunção tiroidiana nas mulheres com endometriose

Abstract: The objective of this cross sectional study was to compare the prevalence of autoimmune thyroid disease and thyroid dysfunction between women with endometriosis and a control group. One hundred forty eight women with surgically confirmed endometriosis attended at the endometriosis outpatient clinic at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, School of Medicine, Universidade Estadual de Campinas (Unicamp) were evaluated from December 2005 to April 2006 and compared to 158 women from the family planning outpatient clinic at the same institution, during the same time period. All patients were interviewed in one of their regular visit. Thyroid function and autoimmunity were evaluated by measuring serum level of thyroid stimulating hormone, free thyroxin and the antibodies antithyroperoxidase and antithyroglobulin. The association of independent variables and the study group with thyroid disorder and with thyroid dysfunction was assessed by X2 test and Fisher test. Prevalence of thyroid disorders and thyroid dysfuncion among women with endometriosis were calculated and compared with the control group using Mann-Whitney test and the odds ratio was calculated with the 95% confidence interval. The prevalence of hypothyroidism was 12.2 % (18 women) among women with endometriosis and 7.8% (12 women) in the control group (OR 1.49; CI 95%, 0.69 ¿ 3.23). The prevalence of autoimmune hypothyroidism was 6% (9/148) and 5% (8/158) in both groups, respectively. We identified 4% (6 women) with overt hypothyroidism in the group of women with endometriosis and 3.2% (5 cases) among women from the control group. The prevalence of autoimmune thyroid disease was 8.8 % (13 women) among women with endometriosis and 15.8% (25 women) in the control group (OR 0.52; CI 95%, 0.25 ¿ 1.06). Our data do not support the hypotesis that women with endometriosis present a higher prevalence of autoimmune thyroid disease or thyroid dysfuction. Therefore, we believe there is no need for a specific screening of thyroid diseases among women with endometriosis
