Hypothyreosis and hyperthyreosis are the most common autoimmune diseases. Their prevalence has been increasing over the years and in both cases women are about 10 times more affected. Dermatoglyphics are the indicators of growth phenomenon and the differentiation during the early stage of embryogenesis. Therefore analysis of digital-palmar dermatoglyphics has been used in the research of the role of heritage in the development of these diseases, also in detecting their specific markers and revealing the idea of their separation in the context of biological groups. The aim of this paper was to analyze the qualitative and quantitative characteristics of the digital and palmar dermatoglyphics between the group of 100 females with hypothyreosis, 50 females with hyperthyreosis and a control group of 100 phenotypically healthy females. The statistical analysis has shown the heterogenity between all examined groups. The results of the research have proved that patients with thyroid autoimmune diseases separate as specific biological group, there are also differences between hypothyreosis and hyperthyreosis in latent space, so we conclude that different polymorphisms of genes together with influence of enviroment are taking part in their development.
