Grave's disease

Below is an image of a left lobe thyroid gland in longitudinal view.

Patient is a 32 year old lady. She has a known diagnosis of hyperthyroidism.
Ultrasound scan showed a diffusely enlarged and inhomogenous thyroid gland (image not shown here). Colour Doppler demonstrated a hypervascular pattern referred to as the 'thyroid inferno'.
