Case Presentation: We reported a 26-year-old hypothyroid woman in Hashimotochr('39')s thyroiditis background with a hyperactive thyroid nodule in both 99mTc and I131scintigraphy. The nodule disappeared after eight months sufficient thyroid hormone replacement therapy.
Conclusion: Toxic adenoma in hypothyroid patients can be resolved after the thyroxin replacement therapy.
