We report a case of cryptococcal thyroiditis presenting with hyperthyroidism that evolved through a transient euthyroid phase to hypothyroidism and finally recovered to normal function. This four-phase clinical presentation is similar to that of subacute thyroiditis, and it is unusual in the setting of infectious nonviral thyroiditis. Cryptococcal thyroiditis is rare; only three cases have been reported. Our patient is the first who survived the disseminated cryptococcal infection with thyroid involvement, thus enabling longitudinal clinical and endocrinologic follow-up.
