Association of thyroid carcinoma in thyrotoxicosis is uncommon. Preoperative diagnosis of such association is difficult. In a retrospective study of 49 operated cases of Graves' disease (GD) such an association was found in four patients. Findings of a palpable nodule, calcification and a cold nodule on scanning in Graves' disease should increase suspicion for such an association and a frozen section study should be underken in all these cases during surgery to exclude possible co-existing malignancy.
