Brief Answer:
may be self limiting autoimmune thyroiditis.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Significantly increased concentrations most frequently indicate thyroid autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto thyroiditis and Graves disease.
I recommend thyroid ultrasound to confirm autoimmune thyroiditis.
These tests are of value when a child is found to have an elevated TSH level, as a very high level of antibodies strongly suggests a diagnosis of autoimmune thyroiditis.
Thyroiditis is a common condition that is usually mild and self-limiting.
Treatment depends on the type of thyroiditis (Hashimoto thyroiditis, Subacute thyroiditis, Painless thyroiditis, Suppurative thyroiditis, Riedel thyroiditis) and the clinical presentation, but in most cases no treatment is necessary.
Hope i helped you.
