Background: Among all endocrine disorders thyroid disorders are more common in India. Unfortunately people were not much aware about the causes and impact of thyroid diseases. Methods: The case control research design would be carried out on 300 purposively selected women who were attending Thyro Care Clinic, Karur District to assess the association between exposure to hair dye and the Goiter among women. Results: The result showed that the calculated chi-square value (82.5) is more than the table value (3.84) for 1 degree of freedom at 0.05 level of significant. It reveals that there was strong association between the Exposure to hair dye and the goiter. The incident rate among exposed to hair dye was 52% and 5.8% among non exposed to hair dyes. The relative risk goiter among women exposed goiter was 8.96. The odds ratio shows that a risk of having the goiter among women exposed to hair dyes was 17.5 times higher than those who did not exposed to hair dyes. Conclusion: The result confirmed that there was an significant association between the Exposure to hair dye and the goiter among women attending Thyro Care Clinic, Karur.
