- Acute thyroiditis or suppurative thyroiditis is relatively rare and typically caused by an infection that starts within the thyroid gland.
- Subacute thyroiditis is thought to occur from a viral infection and typically causes the thyroid gland to swell very rapidly.
- Hashimoto's thyroiditis is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the thyroid gland caused by abnormal blood antibodies and white blood cells attacking and damaging thyroid cells. The end result of this so-called "autoimmune" destruction is hypothyroidism or underactive thyroid functioning. Some patients are able to retain sufficient thyroid reserve to prevent hypothyroidism.
- Silent thyroiditis is also a typically a temporary condition with only a slight enlargement of the thyroid gland.
- Radiation-induced thyroiditis is caused by radiation treatment that is given for the treatment of cancer or radioactive iodine treatment.
- Sometime even taking certain drugs causes thyroiditis.
- Postpartum thyroiditis occurs frequently in women with a past history of thyroid disease who have recently delivered a baby. In most respects, silent and post partum thyroiditis resemble Hashimoto's thyroiditis except that the gland tends to recover and thyroid hormone treatment need be given for only a few weeks. However, it does differ from subacute thyroiditis in that recurrences are common (10%) and progression to permanent hypothyroidism is more frequent (10%).
