Acute suppurative thyroiditis

Acute suppurative thyroiditis (AST) is a suppurative inflammation of thyroid caused by Staphylococcus aureus. It is mostly secondary to bacterial infection in the mouth, neck and other parts. In 1857, Bauchet first described ast. In the absence of antibiotics, the incidence rate of AST was 0.1% in thyroid surgery. With the application of antibiotics, AST has been relatively rare, and its incidence rate is not reported clearly.
