An elderly woman is described who developed Hashimoto's thyroiditis and, subsequently, thyroid lymphoma more than 15 years after the onset of splenic atrophy. This case supports the concept that splenic atrophy predisposes to the development of autoimmune thyroid disease. The relationship between splenic atrophy and autoimmune thyroid disease is reviewed.
