inflammation of the thyroid gland caused by nonspecific infection (for example, staphylococcosis), specific infection (tuberculosis), poisoning (by lead or carbon monoxide), or autoimmune diseases. Symptoms include pain upon swallowing or moving the head backward, throbbing pain in the ears and lower jaw, elevated body temperature, enlargement of the neck, and tenderness of the regional lymph nodes. The course of thyroiditis may be acute, subacute, or chronic. Treatment calls for the use of antiinflammatory agents, analgesics, antibiotics, corticosteroids, thyroidin, and vitamins. Suppurative thyroiditis is treated surgically.

[5.] Staii A, Mirocha S, Todorova-Koteva K, Glinberg S, Jaume JC (2010) Hashimoto thyroiditis is more frequent than expected when diagnosed by cytology which uncovers a pre-clinical state.
Hashimoto thyroiditis, first described by Hashimoto in 1912, is an autoimmune inflammation of the thyroid commonly affecting middle-aged women.1 Histologic features of HT include diffuse infiltration of lymphoid cells usually with formation of lymphoid follicles, varying degrees of fibrosis, oxyphilic change or squamous metaplasia in the epithelial cells.1 When the presence of focal lymphocytic infiltration is assumed to be an adequate criterion for diagnosis of HT, the incidence appears to be as high as 16-23% in elderly females.1
As noted above, some patients may have hypothyroidism, indicative of Hashimoto thyroiditis, but there are no laboratory abnormalities that are specific to thyroid lymphomas [4].
Later all the patients who showed Hashimoto thyroiditis were selected and they were subjected to anti-TPO antibody testing which was done using immunoassay (CLIA).

Methods: A total of 93 patients who presented to Sakarya University Endocrinology outpatient clinic from April to September 2016 and diagnosed with Hashimoto thyroiditis were included in this study.
Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate clinical and laboratory findings and determine the prevalence of celiac disease (CD) in children with Hashimoto thyroiditis (HT).

The differential diagnosis included Riedel thyroiditis (RT) and the fibrosing variant of Hashimoto thyroiditis (FVHT); the latter was considered more likely given that there was no obvious extension into the surrounding soft tissues.
Recent studies indicate a link between autoimmune disorders such as Hashimoto thyroiditis and the incidence of skin changes, for instance chronic spontaneous urticaria or vitiligo [14,15].
