Neglected cases of papillary and follicular thyroid carcinoma. Occurrence of subcutaneous scalp metastases (Journal article)

Pavlidis, N. A./ Sourla, A. D./ Nikolaou, N. G./ Tolis, C. F./ Mitsi, V. D.


Three cases, two follicular and one of papillary thyroid carcinoma are reported. All three patients presented with subcutaneous cystic scalp metastases; they had a long-standing history of thyroid cancer, although two had never sought medical attention. We discuss this unusual clinical manifestation in patients with untreated well differentiated thyroid carcinoma.
