Simultaneous existence of papillary carcinoma in the thyroid gland and thyroglossal duct cyst in two patients

Deniz Demir1, Yusufhan Süoğlu, Mehmet Güven, Yersu Kapran

Papillary carcinoma of the thyroglossal duct cyst is a
rare occurrence. Two patients presenting with medial
neck masses were diagnosed as having thyroglossal
duct cysts by ultrasonography. The
Sistrunk operation was performed. Histopathologic
evaluation demonstrated papillary carcinoma in the
surgical specimens of both patients. The thyroid
glands were examined by ultrasonography, scintigraphy,
and fine-needle aspiration biopsy. Biopsy
showed papillary carcinoma, and total thyroidectomies
were performed. Micropapillary carcinoma
was detected in the resected thyroid glands. The
patients were asymptomatic without complications
after 24 and 32 months of follow-up, respectively.
