Abstract: Autoimmune thyroid disease traditionally includes chronic thyroiditis, autoimmune hyperthyroidism (Graves’ disease), and primary nongoitrous myxedema, and these diseases have a common syndrome-sharing pathophysiology. Here we report a rare case of simultaneous occurrence of thyrotoxicosis linked to Graves’ disease and chronic hypothyroidism due to Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.

Keywords: Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Graves’ disease, autoimmune thyroid disorders
