Abstract

Primary Lymphoma of the thyroid is one of the very rare entities accounting to less than 2% of thyroid malignancies. We present a case of primary Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma of the thyroid with lymphocytic thyroiditis in a 60 year old woman. The patient presented with a rapidly growing nodular mass in the thyroid. The histological and immune marker features of the tumour were consistent with Primary Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma of the thyroid with associated thyroiditis.
