Thyroid Hemiagenesis Presenting As Hypothyroidism – A Rare Case Report
Thyroid hemiagenesis is a very rare abnormality, in which one of the thyroid lobes fails to develop embryologically. Most of the patients are detected incidentally and have an associated thyroid disease. The true prevalence of the thyroid hemiagenesis is still not known but literature reports incidence in 0.02% of population. We report a rare case of hemiagenesis of left lobe of thyroid and isthmus with associated hypothyroidism in a 28 years old female with review of literature.
