Abstract

A 13-year-old adolescent girl with Hashimoto's thyroiditis presented with a painful, diffuse goiter. The clinical features simulated those of subacute, or De Quervain's, thyroiditis. The markedly elevated titers of thyroid antibodies together with clinical and biochemical evidence of hypothyroidism resulted in a diagnosis of Hashimoto's thyroiditis with a subacute exacerbation.
