One case of colloid goiter was encountered in superior compartment in adult patient in the present study.
Coexistence of thyroiditis and colloid goiter is also seen in significant number of cases [12,14,16].
One baby was macrosomic (4 030 g), born to a mother with a euthyroid colloid goiter and no other comorbidity.
Non-neoplastic and non-inflammatory lesion: Colloid goiter, adenomatous goiter, benign cystic lesion, hyperplasia, thyroglossal cyst, thyrotoxicosis.
In terms of cytohistological correlation, histopathology confirmed, among others, 36 (61.0%) cases as adenomatous colloid goiter, 7 (11.8%) as follicular adenoma, and 9 (15.2%) as papillary carcinoma (Table-1).
Postoperative histopathology showed that colloid goiter, malignancy, and follicular adenoma were the most common findings in the transient group, while malignancy and Hashimoto thyroiditis were the most common findings in the prolonged group.

Smears obtained by FNAC of 50 case, each of HT (which served as cases) and colloid goiter (which served as controls) were observed.
Because the patient had obstructive symptoms and follicular lesion on FNAB, right hemithyroidectomy and isthmectomy was done and histopathology findings were compatible with colloid goiter.
Papillary carcinoma was the most common malignant lesion while colloid goiter was the most common benign lesion.
FNAC results were classified in to five groups: a) Inadequate (no diagnosis was made because of inadequate cellular material), b) Non neoplastic (including multinodular goiter, colloid goiter, thyroiditis), c) Neoplastic (papillary, anaplastic, lymphoma), d) Suspicious (suggestive/suspicious of neoplasm--follicular neoplasm), Indeterminate (no diagnosis made in spite of enough cellular material).
