    Abstract

    Destructive thyroiditis commonly occurs during the postpartum period, with a prevalence rate of 5% to 16%, and is mainly due to postpartum autoimmune thyroiditis (PPT) and, very rarely, to subacute thyroiditis. The thyroiditis is similar to Hashimoto's thyroiditis and is generally painless in nature, although cases with painful thyroiditis have been described. We report a case of painful destructive thyroiditis occurring during the postpartum period, which was clinically and biochemically indistinguishable from the variant of painful PPT or subacute thyroiditis. Fine needle aspiration cytology showed multi-nucleated giant cells diagnostic of subacute thyroiditis.
