Abstract

Acute infectious thyroiditis is a rare condition of the thyroid gland, most often arising in children with congenital conditions connecting the thyroid directly to the oropharynx, such as a piriform fistula or thyroglossal duct. We report a case of acute thyroiditis due to septic emboli derived from infective endocarditis.
