Thyrotoxicosis due to thyroiditis is predominantly caused by infection or autoimmune disease of the thyroid. Parathyroid surgery however, is a lesser known cause of thyroiditis, due to thyroid manipulation. We treated a patient who developed transient symptomatic thyroiditis following parathyroid surgery for tertiary hyperparathyroidism. Therefore, the differential diagnosis for patients with symptoms after parathyroid surgery should include transient thyroiditis.
