Abstract: Microscopic infiltration of the thyroid gland by amyloid is an uncommon but well recognized phenomenon and significant enlargement of the thyroid due to deposition of amyloid is rarely seen. This condition has to be distinguished from other types of goiters and at times from malignancy. In spite of extensive involvement of the gland by amyloid, thyroid function usually remains normal. Here, we describe a rare case of amyloid goiter without amyloid deposits in any other organs of the body. The case presented in an unusual clinical settings of relatively rapid enlargement of thyroid with pressure symptoms and was unassociated with any immuno-proliferative or chronic diseases.
