Clinical presentation. First time we met the patient two years ago when a 60-year-old hypothyroid patient was referred for an evaluation of a thyroid nodule. Cytology was performed from a hypoechogenic discrete lesion presenting hyperechogenic granules and resulted in Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
Two months prior to the present visit the patient visited another clinic for follow-up examination. She was told harboring a suspicious nodule and aspiration cytology resulted in "suspicion of carcinoma not otherwise specified".

Palpation: a firm nodule in the left lobe.

Laboratory test: TSH 2.06 mIU/L on daily 125 microgram levothyroxine.

Lesion in question:

the nodule in the left lobe.
