Riedel's thyroiditis is characterized by a replacement of the normal thyroid parenchyma by a dense [[fibrosis]] that invades adjacent structures of the neck and extends beyond the thyroid capsule.<ref name="pmid17603227">{{cite journal |author=Cho MH, Kim CS, Park JS, ''et al'' |title=Riedel's thyroiditis in a patient with recurrent subacute thyroiditis: a case report and review of the literature |journal=Endocr.
