Treatment of Graves disease varies depending on patient characteristics and available options. Methimazole is generally preferred over prophylthiouracil (PTU) though PTU is the drug of choice in the first trimester of pregnancy. Radioiodine ablation may be considered in patients who fail or have contraindications to medical management and surgery. Thyroidectomy is indicated in the presence of a large obstructing goitre, in pregnancy, and may be considered if it is a patient’s preference.
