Recurrent thyroiditis is defined as a repeat attack of subacute thyroiditis. The recurrence rates may vary from 1.4% to 20%. The recurrence may happen at any time ranging from weeks to years after the first episode. The patients with recurrent thyroiditis not responding to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may require steroids. The recovery to euthyroidism is mostly complete but a small percent may develop transient and less commonly permanent hypothyroidism. The mainstay of treatment is medical therapy but surgery may be needed in resistant cases.
