primary hyperthyroidism

pri·mar·y hy·per·thy·roid·ism

hyperthyroidism due to a disorder originating within the thyroid gland, in contrast to one of pituitary origin; may be due to generalized overactivity of the gland, to a localized hyperactive nodule, or to circulating antibody, which stimulates the gland (long-acting thyroid stimulator).
