Follicular cell carcinoma (FCC) of the thyroid is rarely found during childhood. We report a 12 1/2-year-old girl with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, who developed rapidly growing FCC of the thyroid, 3 years after bone marrow transplantation. The role of chemotherapy in the induction of such secondary tumors after transplantation is discussed, and a proposal for the approach to these patients is suggested.
