Hemiagenesis of thyroid gland with aplastic isthmus is a rare entity with limited cases documented. Left lobe is more commonly involved as compared to right lobe with female predominance. The actual incidence is not well documented as the patient is usually asymptomatic and is incidentally diagnosed on imaging modalities like ultrasonography, Computed Tomography Scan or Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Hemiagenesis may be of either one lobe or both lobes with or without aplastic isthmus. We shall be reporting a case of 25year old man with normal T3, T4 and TFT levels was incidentally diagnosed with right sided hemiagenesis of thyroid with complete absence of isthmus. It is important to diagnose since it is highly associated with various thyroid abnormalities.
Keywords: Congenital thyroid anomalies, hemiagenesis, thyroid, aplastic isthmus.
