Hashimoto: Hashimoto's thyroiditis is chronic autoimmune thyroiditis. This is the most common form of thyroiditis. Other forms of thyroiditis include drug-induced (amiodarone) which can also be chronic. Infectious and post-partum thyroiditis tend to be more acute.

Maybe: Hashimoto's is a form of chronic thyroiditis, but not all thyroiditis is hashimoto's.
