Abstract

The association of hyperthyroidism and thyroid carcinoma, especially multicentric forms, is an unusual event. We present the case of a 49-year-old woman with clinical and radiological findings of hyperfunctioning thyroid nodule that showed, after a subtotal thyroidectomy, histologic evidence of multicentric carcinoma in one lobe and adenoma in the other lobe. The interest of this clinical case is in the coexistence of an independent adenoma with a multicentric carcinoma, revealed by radical surgery that was necessary for the occurrence of a multinodular goiter. The incidence of this situation could be underestimated in consequence of the current surgical approach to the single "hot" nodule and suggests we pay attention to these patients for the possible presence of malignancy in functionally-inhibited thyroid tissue.
