Abstract

We have presented the lymphographic findings in 13 patients with thyroid enlargement due to various disorders and discussed the diagnostic accuracy of this procedure. It is possible to diagnose uncommon thyroid diseases such as Hashimoto's disease and retrosternal goiter by thyroid lymphography. We recommend more regular use of this useful diagnostic aid.
