Antithyroid drug therapy is still a widely used approach in the management of hyperthyroidism. Histomorphological changes of thyroid in toxic goiter, following carbimazole therapy are rarely documented. We present a case of 51-year-old female patient who clinically presented with features of thyromegaly. Initially a diagnosis of mutinodular goiter with follicular hyperplasia and in places raising even a suspicion of Hurthle cell neoplasm was made. Correlating the clinical details, history of drug intake, and histomorphological features; a final diagnosis of therapy (carbimazole) induced changes in toxic goiter was offered.
