Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Thyroid abscess is a rare event especially in the pediatric age group. We report a 2-year-old girl with thyroid abscess who presented with fever and an anterior painful neck mass. Culture of the aspirated fluid yielded Arcanobacterium haemolyticum, which is one of the etiologies of pharyngitis and rash in children and, especially, young adults. As far as we are aware this is the first report of thyroid abscess in the pediatric or adult age group caused by Arcanobacterium haemolyticum.
