Introduction: We report a case of a patient with orbital pseudotumors associated with Riedel's thyroiditis. This association of unknown etiology may be related to idiopathic multifocal fibrosclerosis that includes retroperitoneal fibrosis, mediastinal fibrosis, sclerosing cholangitis, Riedel's thyroiditis, and orbital pseudotumors.
Case Report: A 44-year-old woman was referred for a bilateral inflammatory malignant exophthalmos with progressive optical neuropathy (bilateral visual acuity<1/20). Read More

Riedel's thyroiditis is a rare variant of thyroiditis and characterized by the replacement of thyroid parenchyma by extensive fibrosis. Typically, the thyroid is diffusely involved and a painless, hard anterior neck mass shows clinical features similar to those of anaplastic thyroid carcinoma: a rapidly enlarging, hard, fixed thyroid mass and symptoms such as dysphagia, dysphonia, and dyspnea. We experienced a case of Riedel's thyroiditis that had presented rapidly growing, hard, fixed, thyroid mass mimicking anaplastic thyroid cancer in a 41-year-old female patient with longstanding benign thyroid nodule for 6 years.
