Primary thyroid lymphoma is rare, composing approximately 5% of all thyroid malignancies and less than 3% of all extranodal lymphomas. It typically presents as a rapidly enlarging goiter with associated compressive symptoms. Thyroid ultrasound and fine needle aspiration cytology, using flow cytometry and immunohistochemistry, remain the main modalities used to confirm the presence of lymphoma. The increasing use of an ultrasound-guided core biopsy to achieve an accurate diagnosis has further lim...

Context: Although primary thyroid lymphoma is a rare cause of both thyroid malignancy and extranodal lymphoma, awareness of this disease is important in order to achieve an early diagnosis and implement treatment. We review the epidemiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of this rare disorder. Evidence Acquisition: This review is based on a search of PubMed and MDConsult for English language articles containing the term “primary thyroid lymphoma.” The authors reviewed original ...

Abstract The incidence of malignant tumors and leukemia was analyzed in 829 patients with chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis and in 829 individually age-matched and sex-matched patients with colloid goiter. Diagnoses were based on cytologic studies of specimens obtained by fine-needle aspiration biopsy. The patients were examined between 1959 and 1978 and were followed in the Swedish Cancer Register between 1959 and 1981. There was no increased risk for the total number of tumors in the thyroiditis...

Background Primary thyroid lymphoma (PTL) is a rare thyroid malignancy, there are few large sample studies on PTL and no standardized treatment regimen has been established due to the rarity. The aims of this study were to explore the incidence and prognostic factors of PTL and construct visual prognostic prediction models for post-chemotherapy and postoperative patients. Methods The incidence of PTL in 1975-2017 was extracted from the US Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) databa...
