Abstract

Although the majority of thyroid cancer patients presenting to our surgical endocrinology clinics present with resectable and often curable disease, patients may rarely present with a history and physical findings suggestive of an anaplastic thyroid cancer. The endocrine surgeon should recognize, diagnose, and treat this patient urgently and promptly. The clinical course and findings from two patients who presented to our endocrine surgery clinic recently are summarized below from the patients' clinical notes.
