Thyroid abscess is a rare condition of the thyroid gland. The ability of thyroid gland is to resist infection which is well known and the infection in thyroid gland is rare, particularly so with the advent of widespread usage of antibiotics. Thyroid abscess represents only 0.1 to 0.7% of surgically treated thyroid pathologies. We report here a case of adult female with HIV infection who presented with thyroid abscess.
