Abstract

A patient with Birt-Hogg-Dubé Syndrome (BHDS) developed metastatic follicular thyroid cancer, which until now has never been described in someone with BHDS. Thyroid cancer is not currently recommended for screening with BHDS. This case presents implications for future guidelines and planning for renal transplant in patients with this condition.
