oa Journal of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Diabetes in South Africa - A case of Riedel's thyroiditis : case report

 

Abstract

Riedel's thyroiditis is a rare disorder that mainly affects middle-aged women. Dense fibrosis disrupts the normal thyroid architecture and replaces the normal thyroid architecture, and can extend beyond the thyroid capsule.


This is the first report of a case of Riedel's thyroiditis associated with systemic, multifocal fibrosis in a black South African patient.
