Abstract
Primary thyroid lymphoma is rare and accounts for less than 5% of all thyroid malignancy. The clinical presentation includes a rapidly enlarging neck mass, associated with dysphagia, dyspnea or hoarseness. The most common histologic type is diffuse large B cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Papillary thyroid carcinoma is the most common type of thyroid malignancy. Co-occurrence of papillary thyroid carcinoma and primary thyroid lymphoma is very rare. Recently, we experienced a case with co-occurrence of papillary thyroid carcinoma and primary thyroid lymphoma in a 79-year-old woman, who had tuberculous lymphadenitis presented as lateral neck mass. We present this case with a review of the literature.
Key Words: Thyroid papillary carcinoma, Thyroid lymphoma, Tuberculous lymphadenitis
