Overview

Surgery is usually reserved for patients with esophageal or tracheal compressive symptoms.

Surgery

  • Usually, thyroid debulking surgery is performed in Riedel's thyroiditis.[1][2][3][4]
  • Total thyroidectomy is difficult due to:
    • Lack of tissue planes for surgery
    • Fibrosis of adjacent structures
