The article deals with a number of thyroid abnormalities which produce similar sonographic patterns, characterised by a paucity of echos of low amplitude. It concerns three more or less circumscribed changes (differentiated carcinoma of the thyroid, autonomous adenoma and focal thyroiditis) and two diffuse thyroid conditions (sub-acute and lymphocytic diffuse thyroiditis, hyperthyroidism). Carcinoma of the thyroid is of particular interest. The distinguishing features and differential diagnosis are discussed.
