Another in a series of thyroid "snapshots" to illustrate imaging findings. All are biopsy proven.
Do not confuse this appearance with the other cases in this series showing multiple small cysts in a lesion. Look carefully at cases 21888 and 21891 to understand the difference.
This is completely different. This lesion has a large solid component and the cysts are large. Note the loss of the "halo" posteriorly as indicated on the annotated second image.
FNA confirmed papillary carcinoma thyroid.
