Clinical presentation: A 55-year-old woman was referred for follow-up investigation. The patient was first diagnosed having hypothyroidism and nodular goiter five years ago. Aspiration cytology resulted in Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Her lesion in the left lobe increased in size, therefore a repeat FNA was suggested.

Palpation: Both lobes were firm. No nodule could be palpated.

Hormonal investigation: euthyroidism on daily 75 microgram levothyroxine (TSH 1.72 mIU/L).

Additional data. The dimensions of the lesion in the LEFT lobe were 15x13x20 mm, width, depth and length, repectively.
