In brief: ATA's definition

Thyroiditis is a general term that refers to “inflammation of the thyroid gland”.
Thyroiditis includes a group of individual disorders that all cause thyroidal inflammation and, as a result, causes many different clinical presentations. (american thyroid association's definition).

In brief: Inflammation

Thyroiditis comes in different forms ranging from the immune system's attack on the body's own thyroid to infections of the gland - either viral or bacterial.
Inflammation of the thyroid is the common link.
