A 25-year-old female patient was admitted to the family medicine clinic with complaints of sore throat, fever, and right ear pain that persisted for 15 days despite receiving ant biotherapy treatment. In her medical history, she had a COVID-19 infection 30 days ago. The thyroid examination revealed painful palpation with a slight increase in the size of the thyroid gland. The patient's blood tests and thyroid ultrasonography were evaluated as subacute thyroiditis. Although it is impossible to establish a definite causal relationship between COVID-19 and subacute thyroiditis in this case, we think such a relationship is possible.  Since thyroid-related diseases should also be considered in case of sore throat that persists despite treatment and thyroid examination should not be skipped during a physical examination, it is deemed appropriate to present this case with literature.
