Abstract

Object Metastasis to the thyroid gland is a rare event. Methods We describe an unusual case of a 38-year-old woman with a history of small-cell lung cancer (SCLC), presenting with a new nodule in the thyroid gland, found to be metastatic SCLC, without evidence of widespread dissemination. Conclusions A new thyroid nodule should be carefully evaluated for metastasis in a patient with a history of prior malignancy.
