Dyshormonogenetic goiter (DG) is the term given to the group of familial goiters owing to an inborn error of thyroid hormone metabolism. It is a benign, rare condition presenting architectural and cytological features that may lead to overdiagnosis of malignancy. Hence, in a patient with a history of hypothyroidism since infancy, a sense of apprehension is essential for a diagnosis of DG. We report a case of DG in a 12-year-old cretin girl.
