MetadataShow full item record
Thyroid gland abscess formation is a rare occurrence owing to its inherent resistance to infections. 1 It also presents both medical and surgical dilemmas. The case we present in this report is an immune reconstitution infl ammatory syndrome (IRIS) presenting in form of a tuberculous abscess of the thyroid gland.
