Abstract

We report a rare case of mixed medullary-follicular carcinoma and papillary carcinoma of the same thyroid. A 27-year-old Chinese female complained of a single thyroid nodule for 2-3 months. Needle aspiration revealed suspicious papillary carcinoma and thyroidectomy performed later showed mixed medullary-follicular carcinoma and papillary carcinoma of the same thyroid which was extremely rare. Whether neoplastic transformation is due to tumorigenic stimulus or just due to the collision phenomenon is still controversial for its etiology.
