Thyroid hemiagenesis is a rare congenital abnormality, in which one thyroid lobe fails to develop. The associated diseases in the remaining thyroid lobe include benign multinodular goiter, adenoma, hyperthyroidism, chronic thyroiditis and rarely carcinoma. The most common pathology involved in thyroid hemiagenesis is hyperthyroidism. The presence of carcinoma in a patient with hemiagenesis is quite rare and very few cases are reported in the world literature.
