Abstract


The increased incidence of thyroid cancer is probably the result of the increased detection of subclinical disease. We present the case of a 24-year-old male patient, with no pre-existing personal or family history of thyroid disease or past irradiation exposure, who was concomitantly diagnosed with a Hodgkin lymphoma and a papillary carcinoma of the thyroid in the context of B signs and the absence of thyroid disease symptoms. This case illustrates a unique and previously unreported example of two synchronous cancers of which one was fortuitously discovered. We also report the treatment approach we adopted.
