Chronic persistent cough: an uncommon presenting complaint of thyroiditis.


:We report two patients with non-conventional thyroiditis whose chief complaint was chronic persistent cough. Cough was attributed to thyroiditis only after extensive diagnostic evaluations failed to uncover another cause and only after cough and thyroiditis disappeared simultaneously with suppressive therapy for the latter. Although thyroiditis is a rare cause of persistently troublesome cough, the diagnosis can be made by systematic evaluation of the sites of receptors and afferent nerves subserving the cough reflex.
