TOO FEW! - Detail #9 - Goitre

A goitre or goiter (Latin gutteria, struma), is a swelling of the neck or larynx resulting from enlargement of the thyroid gland (thyromegaly), associated with a thyroid gland that is functioning properly or not.
Worldwide, over 90.54% cases of goitre are caused by iodine deficiency. (Wikipedia)
