ANTI-MICROSOMAL ANTIBODY (AMA)

What is ANTI MICROSOMAL ANTIBODY?

Microsomes are found inside thyroid cells. The body produces antibodies against microsomes when there has been some damage to these cells. Autoimmunity induces the immune system to produce antibodies against host tissue causing inflammation or impairing thyroid function. The presence of an anti-microsomal antibody (AMA) is generally associated with an autoimmune disorder. A positive test for AMA can indicate Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Grave’s disorder, granulomatous thyroiditis, Rheumatoid arthritis Autoimmune hemolytic anemia (rarely), etc. Detection of these antibodies can therefore assist in identifying damage to the thyroid cells causing such disorders.
