    The development of Goitre may be classified as endemic and sporadic. Endemic goitre occurs due to insufficient dietary iodine intake. More than 10% of the community is usually affected. In sporadic goitre a lesser number of individuals from the community are affected. The risk factors include a positive family history, dietary iodine deficiency, age (over 40 years) and female gender.
