Abstract

Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma is a rare diagnosis with a high rate of mortality and universally poor prognosis. The disease process usually progresses quickly from diagnosis and often management consists primarily of palliative and hospice care. In this report, we discuss a case of anaplastic thyroid carcinoma in a patient presenting with a rapidly growing neck mass. This case demonstrates the quick and aggressive progression of this cancer. Currently, treatment for anaplastic thyroid carcinoma is limited and remission is rare. More research is needed in the future to improve treatment and prognosis of this devastating cancer.
