Caption

Swollen thyroid gland in the throat of a 41-year-old woman with thyroiditis. This is a multinodular goitre (swollen thyroid gland) in a case of autoimmune thyroiditis. In this condition, the patient's immune system attacks the thyroid gland, causing hypothyroidism (lowered thyroid function). Treatment involves the use of synthetic thyroid hormones.
