Rak brodawkowaty tarczycy w torbieli przewodu tarczowo-językowego

Journal Title: Otolaryngologia Polska - Year 2009, Vol 63, Issue 1


Introduction: Thyroglossal duct cyst is one of the most common congenital malformation in the neck area, but malignant neoplasms of the thyroglossal duct cyst are rare, about 1–1,5% cases of TDC. The papillary thyroid carcinoma is the most frequent malignant neoplasm of thyroglossal duct cyst. The recommended treatment is surgery, including excision of not only TDC, but also thyroid gland, with subsequent J131 ablation and suppressant dose of thyroxine. Aim of study: Review of literature and presentation of 3 cases of papillary thyroid carcinoma in thyroglossal duct cyst. Material and methods: Analysis of clinical records and current observation of patients treated in Department of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, Holy Cross Cancer Center in Kielce. Conclusion: Clinical pattern of thyroglossal duct carcinoma and diagnostic process (USG+BAC) do not indicate the presence of neoplasms commonly. The diagnosis is established just after histopathological examination of a resected cyst, what requires a consecutive steps of treatment.
