An indicator of iodine deficiency in a population for descriptive diagnosis of IDD, are the investigations conducted in children, adolescents and pregnant women. Studies by Peterson et al, showed that the palpatory method Pérez (PMP), adapted by WHO in 1960, remains the method of choice for the classification of goiter in developing countries. It is intended to determine the profile goitrogenic in students Camata by palpation and ultrasonography semiológica, in cross section. METHOD: The research to 201 children and adolescents students was conducted between the ages of 5-17 years through a medical history that yielded demographic and anthropometric data, physical examination with reference MPP and ultrasonography. RESULTS: The 2 cases of goiter found show a statistical value of 1.4%. However, this finding sensitive to this type of study population, reveal an important indicator for this sector. DISCUSSION: Goiter exists in Bolivia since pre-Columbian times by poor mountainous geographical phenomenon of iodine that characterizes its territory, including Camata Marka also no similar study was conducted in that region.
