Abstract

Aim: Thyroid cancers are the most commonly determined cancers in the paediatric age group. Although the rates of lymph node and distant metastases are greater at the time of diagnosis in comparison with adult thyroid cancers, with the appropriate treatment protocols, the prognosis is excellent. In this paper; we present the clinical characteristics of thyroid papillary carcinoma determined in children and adolescents in our clinic, the surgical techniques applied and the clinical results evaluated in consideration of the relevant literature.
