Tuberculosis of Thyroid Gland Presenting as Abscess


Veena Gupta, Ekta Boombak, Parul Tanwar, Hemant Yadav and Rajeev Sen

Tuberculosis of thyroid gland is an extremely rare clinical entity. It is very rare even in countries with a high prevalence of tuberculosis. It is rare to suspect a thyroid swelling or nodule as being tuberculous on clinical examination, unless it has destroyed the gland and formed an abscess in a patient with known pulmonary tuberculosis. We present a case of thyroid tuberculosis presenting as a solitary nodule and diagnosed on FNAC.
