Overview

Riedel's thyroiditis is considered to have autoimmune etiology and may be caused by the eosinophilia and the proliferation fibroblast as a result of cytokines released by inflammatory cells. Although some drugs such as methysergide, serotonin, lysergic acid, and ergotamine have also been identified as the cause of retroperitoneal fibrosis, there are no reports of the direct association with Riedel's thyroiditis.
