Kim, Jang, Choi, and Park: Metastatic Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma to the Thyroid Gland


Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the most common histological subtype of malignant renal tumors. Although RCC frequently metastasizes to many organs, it rarely metastasizes to the thyroid gland without evidence of other organ involvement. We report a case of a metastatic renal cell carcinoma to the thyroid gland, which was misdiagnosed preoperatively as a follicular neoplasm from the fine needle aspiration cytology.
