A decade ago it commonly was thought that the anatomical examination of thyroids removed from patients suffering from hyperthyroidism did not reveal changes which could be correlated with the clinical findings. Consequently, many classifications of diseases of the thyroid gland were proposed, based largely either upon clinical features or on anatomical changes. Such classifications were very simple or very complicated, and often confusing. In the main, the proponents of these classifications might be grouped into those who differentiated between two types of hyperthyroidism and those who maintained that such differentiation was not justified and could not be substantiated.
