The thyroid gland is a highly vascular and ductless gland. The gland consist of two lateral lobes and an isthmus connecting them across the middle line thus giving ‘H’ shaped or butterfly shaped appearance to the gland. A wide range range of morphological variation and developmental anomalies of the gland and its neurovascular relations will help the surgeon in better planning of a safe and effective surgery.
