Abstract

The most common malignant tumor of the thyroid is papillary carcinoma. Sarcoma of the thyroid is encountered very rarely; its therapy is complex and poses significant problems due to the problematic location of the tumor. A 14-year-old female was diagnosed with undifferentiated sarcoma of the thyroid and received combined therapy comprising surgery, chemo- and radiotherapy without significant side effects. This case underlines the fact that undifferentiated thyroid sarcoma may be a diagnostic possibility in children with malignant masses of the neck and may be successfully treated with modern therapeutic strategies.
