Abstract

Depression is commonly encountered in medical settings and often may be a symptom of an underlying medical illness. This case report illustrates the disabling symptoms of anxiety and depression that can accompany a toxic nodular goiter, and underscores the importance of both accurate psychiatric diagnosis and appropriate medical evaluation in the assessment of psychiatric disorders in the elderly.
