First US image shows whole thyroid gland compromise with heterogenous echo-structure, nodules red arrowmicro-calcifications green arrow and atypical vascularization with wide and anarchic vessels yellow arrow. Second US image showing evidence of neck adenomegaly group III with echo-structure and vascularization similar to the affected thyroid tissue. Three years previously his mother had detected the mass, but she did not look for medical advice.

A hard, anterior cervical mass in the thyroid area was palpated. Size was approximately 8 x 8 cm, it was fixed to surrounding tissues and multiple bilateral palpable cervical lymph nodes were detected. Thyroid Ultrasound showed a gland with heterogeneous echo-structure, multiple nodules with micro-calcifications and atypical vascular irrigation.


Multiple cervical nodules were also observed in both sides with an echo-structure with similar to the thyroid gland.


Computed axial tomography of the lungs and neck showed macro and micro nodules, the latter predominantly in sub-pleurals areas. Hypoparathyroidism was detected after surgery, and properly treated. Radioactive iodine ablation 80 mCi.
