Abstract

Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC) is associated with an almost uniformly rapid and lethal clinical course. ATC grows rapidly and invades surrounding tissues at an early stage. Despite surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, few patients with ATC live more than 1 year follow-up diagnosis. The mean survival is reported to be only 7.2 months. Treatment of ATC is still controversial because of its rarity and advanced stage at the time of diagnosis. We report herein an unusual case of ATC, 35 year old woman. She is alive without evidence of recurrence more than 36 months after combined therapy.
