Abstract

A 53-year-old woman presented with fever accompanied by chills and an extremely painful swelling of her right thyroid lobe. She was initially diagnosed as having subacute thyroiditis, but after 14 days her disease appeared to be caused by a destructive suppurative thyroiditis due to Salmonella group C. A pre-existing hyperplastic nodule in the right thyroid lobe was the predisposing factor. Antibiotics were given for several weeks and surgical drainage was performed. Finally a hemithyroidectomy was done to eliminate the predisposing factor.
