Thyroid Lymphoma

Common Name(s)

Thyroid Lymphoma

Thyroid lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphatic system that arises from the thyroid gland. The lymphatic system is part of the body's immune system that helps fight infection. It is made up of organs such as the bone marrow, thymus, spleen, and lymph nodes. Primary thyroid lymphomas are usually always non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHLs) and can be divided into aggressive and slowly developing cell types. The most common symptoms of thyroid lymphoma is a lump in the front of the neck. Once diagnosed, thyroid NHL is highly curable without the need for surgery. Treatment may include radiotherapy, chemotherapy, or steroids. It usually occurs in people over the age of 60 and is more common in women than in men.

A rare coexistence of thyroid lymphoma with papillary thyroid carcinoma.
 

Author(s): Murat Cakir, Esin Celik, Fatma Betul Tuncer, Ahmet Tekin

Journal: Ann Afr Med. ;12(3):188-90.

 

Diseases of the thyroid gland are frequently seen in general practice. Lymphoma of the thyroid is one of the rarest tumors. Its coexistence with papillary thyroid carcinoma is even rarer. Here, we present a 50-year-old female patient, who presented to our clinic with complaints of ...

Early cytological diagnosis of extranodal stage I, primary thyroid Non-Hodgkin lymphoma in elderly patients. Report of two cases and review of the literature.
 

Author(s): Elena Vigliar, Alessia Caleo, Mario Vitale, Vincenzo Di Crescenzo, Alfredo Garzi, Pio Zeppa

Journal: BMC Surg. 2013 ;13 Suppl 2():S49.

 

Primary thyroid lymphomas (PTLs) account for 5% of thyroid malignant tumors and often develop in patients with Hashimoto Thyroiditis (HT). Fine-needle cytology (FNC) is widely used in the diagnosis of thyroid nodules, including those arising in HT. Two PTL cases in HT elderly patients ...

Journal: Haematologica. 2007 Mar;92(3):e37-40.

 

Lymphoma of the thyroid is almost exclusively derived from B cells of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT), and frequently co-exist with autoimmune thyroiditis in which most infiltrating cells are of Th1 cell origin. We present here two rare cases of peripheral T-cell lymphoma ...
