Abstract

The study investigates the case of a total thyroidectomy, where after dissection multiple nodules showed two malignant patterns by immunohistochemistry. Molecular analysis based on DNA methylation profile was used to further inspect the origin of the coexisting neoplasms. We confirmed the presence of malignant skin melanoma involving medullary thyroid cancer.
