Thyroid hemiagenesis: a case report

Levent Saydam1, Mehmet Birol Uğur, Mete Kaan Bozkurt, Tuncay Özçelik

Thyroid hemiagenesis is usually diagnosed incidentally
during examination for other thyroid gland diseases.
Iodine-123 thyroid scan of a 25-year-old
woman showed a normal homogeneous right thyroid
lobe, but no uptake in the left lobe.
Ultrasonography of the neck confirmed the absence
of the left thyroid lobe, while the right lobe was
homogeneous and normal. Thyroid hemiagenesis
should be included in the differential diagnosis of
thyroid diseases.
