Abstract

Thyroid carcinomas associated with Graves' ophthalmopathy had been described in the literature, before. The rate of this coincidence is 1.1% - 7.1%. Papillary carcinoma is more common than thyroid cancer in Graves' disease. Herein, we present a 37-year-old male Graves' disease patient with thyroid papillary carcinoma.
