Subacute Thyroiditis in the Course of Coronavirus Disease 2019: A Case Report

Mehmet Guven


Subacute thyroiditis (SAT) is a non-suppurative thyroid gland inflammation, which usually develops after viral upper respiratory tract infections, accompanied by pain and fever. Here, we present a 49-year-old Turkish man who developed SAT 10 days after the diagnosis of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). After the COVID-19 outbreak, affecting millions of people worldwide, millions of people are also likely to develop SAT. Therefore, clinicians should pay attention to the development of SAT after COVID-19.
