Two cases of DeQuervain's thyroiditis were diagnosed on fine needle aspiration cytology. Once thought to be a rare clinical entity. It now accounts for 5-6% of all thyroid diseases. The cytological features are quite distinctive. Since the lesion undergoes complete remission on treatment with steroids, surgery can be avoided and the patient treated on the basis of cytologic diagnosis.
