We report uncommon case of granulomatous thyroiditis in young male without any prior history of URTI. All clinical features of SBAT were present but small nodule raise suspicion of malignancy. Nodule was small and not appreciated clinically so USG guided FNAC was done. FNAC is considered cheaper and faster means of diagnosis in thyroid lesion in developing countries like India where many people cannot afford expensive diagnostic measures. Patient was treated with steroid and anti inflammatory medicine and his complain were relieved.
