  Summary: Authors are reporting occurrence of multinodular euthyroid goiter in several members of the same family. Eight of 22 investigated persons (two in first generation, six in second generation, 13 in third generation and one in the forth generation), have expressed goitrous thyroid gland. Three goitrous members in second generation have six children – 4 with goiter. Other three members of second generation, without goiter, have 7 children, all without goiter. From group of eight patients with goiter, five had thyroid surgery and PH findings were predominantly - nodular macrofollicular goiter. In two members (mother and son) in enlarged thyroid gland was found papillary carcinoma. On preoperative examination all patients were functionally euthyroid with scintigraphic findings of hypo functional nodular degeneration. The genetic testing is in the prospect.
