A total of 4842 patients with goiter were studied by scintigraphic and ultrasonographic examination. We observed 2815 (58.1 %) nodular goiter and 2027 (41.9 %) diffuse goiter in total number of these cases. It was observed that the incidence of nodular goiter increased by increasing of age in both sexes while the reverse finding for diffuse goiter. The study suggests that higher incidence of nodular goiter in Turkey than hitherto appreciated and we are led to believe that this kind of goiter is one of the major health issues in Turkey.

Keywords: Nodular goiter, diffuse goiter, scintigraphy, ultrasonography.
