Learning objectives: We present various thyroid and perithyroidal disease including focal/diffuse thyroiditis, benign/indeterminate thyroid nodule, malignancy (primary thyroid cancer, lymphoma), parathyroid adenoma, metastatic lymph node from thyroid, stomach, breast, schwannoma and traumatic neuroma of lateral neck. Pr[...]

Background: Ultrasonography (US) is the primary important modality in making a diagnosis of thyroid and perithyroidal lesions. Today, other radiologic and nuclear medicine imaging modality is increasingly being used to evaluating neck and thyroid lesions, and provide help in correct diagnosis. Modality of cho[...]

Findings and procedure details: Benign lesion 1. Hematoma FDG uptake : associated with elevated glycolytic metabolism Commonly heterogeneous hypoechoic mass like lesion Internal anechoic foci suggest liquefaction (fig. 1) 2. Hashimoto's thyroiditis An autoimmune disease, variety of cell- and antibody-mediated immune processes[...]

Conclusion: The exact knowledge of imaging, pathological and clinical features of thyroid and perithyroid lesions may aid in narrow of the differential diagnosis.
