Abstract

Thyroid gland angiomatoid tumors are an extremely aggressive neoplasms with varied histological patterns and features of endothelial differentiation. The histogenesis of thyroid angiomatoid tumors has been controversial for many years: these tumors may be either a variant of anaplastic carcinoma, or an angiosarcoma. We report a case of thyroid angiomatoid tumor in a 68-year-old woman. We also discuss, through a review of the literature, the pathologic criteria that could be used to distinguish between angiosarcoma and anaplastic carcinoma of the thyroid.
