A Case of Subacute Thyroiditis Presenting with Oligomenorrhea

Hannah Short, Anthony Mander and Jane Wilkinson

Subacute thyroiditis is usually associated with a prodromal flu-like illness and neck pain, with variable enlargement of the thyroid gland. In this case, a 43-year-old woman presented to her GP with a two year history of oligomenorrhoea and an initial suspicion of the perimenopause. Further investigation, however, revealed deranged thyroid function tests and, subsequently, a history of neck pain. The patient's condition resolved of its own accord, and her menstrual cycle began to regulate once again. Thyroid function tests are standard baseline investigations in oligomenorrhoea in primary care and, yet, in this case they had not been undertaken.
