The authors analyze the prevalence of thyroid diseases associated with iodine deficiency in children under 14 years of age, by using Registration Form No. 12 “Information on the number of diseases registered in patients living within the service area of a healthcare facility” of children’s polyclinics, Orenburg City Clinical Hospital Five, over 2018–2021. They consider diseases, such as subclinical hypothyroidism due to iodine deficiency and other hypothyroidism forms, endemic goiter associated with iodine deficiency, as well as other forms of non-toxic goiter.
