Abstract

We report the history of a 44-year-old woman, who had four episodes of thyrotoxicosis in 4 years. The clinical findings and laboratory results were all indicative of recurrent silent thyroiditis. Because silent thyroiditis is self-limiting, treatment is usually symptomatic. In this patient radioiodine therapy was eventually prescribed to obviate further recurrences. We were unable to find reports of this number of recurrences.
