Distant metastasis is uncommon in differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) and 7% to 23% of DTC patients develop distant metastasis. The remarkably good prognosis and long-term survival in DTC are significantly reduced in patients with distant metastasis as those at the pelvic site. We report the rare case of a patient with follicular thyroid cancer initially diagnosed as a pelvic mass.

    Coexistence of medullary thyroid carcinoma and primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is well described, however, the association of nonmedullary thyroid cancer and PHPT is less recognized. Herein, we report two patients with PHPT and papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). Although no definitive data...

    Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) accounts for 5-10% of all thyroid malignancies. These tumors show variable morphological features, however, to the best of our knowledge, melanocytic differentiation is rare with only 11 reported cases. We report a 44-year-old female who presented to our clinic...

    The main diagnostic tool for toxic adenomas (TA) is radionuclide imaging indicated in patients with evidence of thyroid nodules in combination with thyrotoxic syndrome. Thyroid ultrasound and fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) are widely used for the valuation of thyroid masses. There is no...

    Distant metastasis may be the initial sign of differentiated thyroid carcinoma in rare cases. In this instance, the treatment approach is usually individualized. Unlike most other cancers, local treatment of the primary tumor (total thyroidectomy) is preferred as ablative surgery; so that...

    Thyroid metastases are rarely seen in clinical practice but should be considered particularly in patients with a history of non-thyroidal malignancies. Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the most common tumor to metastasize to the thyroid gland and may present many years after a nephrectomy. Thus,...

    The incidence of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) during pregnancy is quite low. There have been a few anecdotal reports of NHL arising in the thyroid gland. Here, we present a 28-year-old female patient who developed a neck swelling, pain and respiratory distress in the 17th week of her first...
