A 73-year-old patient suffering from evolutive nodular goiter, free of other local complaints or changes in the general status is presented. A diagnosis of tuberculous thyroiditis with hypothyroidism is reached. This diagnosis is justified by the antecedents of the patient, positive IDR, low iodine uptake, characteristic scintigraphic and echographic picture of the thyroid. Following a treatment with tuberculostatics, potassium iodide and controlled life regimen for a year, thyroiditis was cured as proved by scintigraphic and echographic evidence, and normal iodine uptake and PBI.
