Endemic goiter

Endemic goiter is a kind of goiter. Goiter can be divided into endemic and sporadic according to regional distribution. Endemic goiter is caused by specific environmental factors (mainly iodine deficiency) in an area. Therefore, a certain proportion of people living in this area have goiter. A certain proportion refers to that the goiter rate of local school-age children is more than 5%, that is, the existence of goiter has constituted a public health problem. Generally speaking, less than 5% is sporadic goiter, which is mostly caused by non iodine deficiency factors.
