Goiter is fairly a common disease in the tropics with endemicity in iodine – deficient regions and such goiters are usually multi nodular, colloid or hyperplastic. Other forms of goiters such as Grave’s disease, thyroid cancers, and inflammatory goiters are also seen though in lesser proportions. Open surgery is the mainstay in the treatment of goiters in developing countries.
