Abstract

Introduction. Subacute thyroiditis (SAT) is a self-limiting thyroid disease associated with a triphasic clinical direction of hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism and back to normal thyroid function. Precise etiology of this clinical condition is unknown. Generally diagnosis is based on clinical-laboratory parameters. Considerable cases of SAT develop after several types of viral infections. We herein describe two cases that developed SAT after dental extraction.
