Lobes of the Thyroid

Summary Information: Lobes of the Thyroid

Lobes of the Thyroid: There are two primary lobes of the thyroid, an endocrine organ located in the anterior neck area in front of the trachea just below the thyroid cartilage. They are the right lobe of the thyroid and the left lobe of the thyroid. These two lobes contain the thyroid follicles and the parafollicular cells, which produce the thyroid hormones, triiodothyronine, thyroxine, and calcitonin. The lobes of the thyroid are connected by the thyroid isthmus, creating the wing-like butterfly structure of the thyroid.

There is also a third lobe of the thyroid, the pyramidal lobe. Conditions that can afflict the lobes of the thyroid include hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, thyroid cancer, thyroid nodules, iodine deficiency, goiter, Grave's disease, trauma, and hypopituitarism.
