Cutting Edge: The Etiology of Autoimmune Thyroid Diseases. Significant progress has been made in our understanding of the mechanisms leading to autoimmune thyroid diseases (AITD). For the first time, we are beginning to unravel these mechanisms at the molecular level. AITD, including Graves' disease (GD) and Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT), are common autoimmune diseases affecting the thyroid. Eschler D.C. Clin Rev Allergy Immunol. 2011 Jan 14.
