Brancatella Alessandro , Ricci Debora , Marino Michele , Vitti Paolo , Latrofa Francesco

Context: Subacute thyroiditis (SAT) is an inflammation of the thyroid, likely caused by a viral infection. IgG Autoantibodies (Ab) to the main thyroid antigens, including thyroglobulin (Tg) (TgAb) have been reported in a few patients with SAT and their appearance is usually transient.

The most common form is destructive thyrotoxicosis whereas persistent, supposedly autoimmune hyperthyroidism (Graves’ hyperthyroidism) is rare. The possible role of thyroid imaging (neck ultrasound and scintigraphy) in the differential diagnosis has never evaluated.Aim: To evaluate the usefulness of neck ultrasound and 99Tc- s...
