Ewing's tumor and papillary adenocarcinoma of the thyroid in a 14-year-old girl.

Journal Article

PURPOSE: We describe an adolescent girl with Stage 1 Ewing's tumor and localized papillary adenocarcinoma of the thyroid gland, a previously unreported association. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A 14-year-old girl with right axillary adenopathy was evaluated. RESULTS: Ewing's tumor was diagnosed after a lymph node biopsy. A magnetic resonance imaging scan of the axilla, chest wall, and neck demonstrated a nodule in the right lobe of the thyroid gland. A biopsy revealed papillary adenocarcinoma. CONCLUSIONS: This is the first report of Ewing's tumor and carcinoma of the thyroid in the same patient.
