Abstract

A patient, known to have sarcoidosis, developed a painful, enlarging right thyroid mass. Thyroid lobectomy was performed revealing sarcoidosis involving the thyroid. A review of the literature shows sporadic reports of involvement of the thyroid with sarcoidosis. There were no previous reports of this entity presenting as painful thyroid enlargement. Thyroid lobectomy was curative.
