The term thyroiditis comprises a group of thyroid diseases characterized by the presence of inflammation, including autoimmune and non-autoimmune entities. It may manifest as an acute illness with severe thyroid pain (subacute thyroiditis and infectious thyroiditis), and conditions in which the inflammation is not clinically evident evolving without pain and presenting primarily thyroid dysfunction and/or goiter (drug-induced thyroiditis and Riedel thyroiditis). The aim of this review is to provide an updated approach on non-autoimmune thyroiditis and its clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic aspects.

Thyroiditis.

Am Fam Physician 2006 May;73(10):1769-76

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, California 90048, USA.

Thyroiditis is an inflammation of the thyroid gland that may be painful and tender when caused by infection, radiation, or trauma, or painless when caused by autoimmune conditions, medications, or an idiopathic fibrotic process. The most common forms are Hashimoto's disease, subacute granulomatous thyroiditis, postpartum thyroiditis, subacute lymphocytic thyroiditis, and drug-induced thyroiditis (caused by amiodarone, interferon-alfa, interleukin-2, or lithium). Patients may have euthyroidism, hyperthyroidism, or hypothyroidism, or may evolve from one condition to another over time. Read More

Inflammatory thyroid disorders.

Otolaryngol Clin North Am 1996 Aug;29(4):541-56

Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, University of Massachusetts Medical Center, Worcester, USA.

Inflammatory disorders of the thyroid, including autoimmune thyroiditis, are among the most common endocrine abnormalities encountered in clinical practice. The association of pain with these disorders, however, is relatively uncommon. Despite this observation, painful thyroid disorders comprise a significant component of the spectrum of thyroid disease.

Inflammatory diseases of the thyroid are collectively the commonest thyroid disorder. Individually, they range from the rare case of acute bacterial thyroiditis to the other end of the spectrum, the even rarer Riedel's thyroiditis. Relatively common thyroid inflammatory diseases include the subacute thyroiditis syndromes. Read More
