Abstract

Primary thyroid lymphoma is a rare form of thyroid malignancies. It is usually seen in middle aged and elderly females. Its diagnosis is not always easy because it is rare and has not specific signs and symptoms. The risk of development of thyroid lymphoma is higher after Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. The most common form of thyroid lymphoma is diffuse large B cell lymphoma. Patients may present with obstructive symptoms due to progressive growth of mass. In the present report, we aimed to present a 59-year-old female patient admitted with rapidly growing neck mass, severe dyspnea, stridor and dysphagia.
