Development of thyroid gland video

The thyroid invades from the pharyngeal wall through a median endodermal thickening that is caudal to the tuberculum impar. It becomes invaginated to form a bilobed structure and it proceeds downwards forming the track laid down by the thyroglossal duct. It then becomes associated inferiorly  with  the caudal pharyngeal complex and as its development continues the parathyroid gland  becomes embedded  and  the C cells of the ultimobranchial gland invades it.
