Keywords:Papillary carcinoma thyroid, cutaneousfungating mass
Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma (PTC) is the most common type of thyroid malignancy making up to 70-80% of all thyroid malignancies. PTC presenting with extrathyroidal cutaneous fungating mass is unusual. We report the management of a neglected fungatingPTC in a 70yr old female. After thorough preoperative evaluation,she underwent total thyroidectomy with en-bloc resection of the fungating mass along with adequate skin margin and ipsilateral selective neck dissection. Postoperative period was uneventful.
