Thyroid abscess is a rare clinical disorder. The caused organism was found to be Staphylococcus aureus. A history of preceding upper respiratory tract infection and recurrent left sided neck infection should alert the physician to its presence. Early biopsy and cultures are needed. Thyroid abscess is successfully treated with immediate surgical intervention and appropriate antimicrobial agents.
