Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In this brief report, we describe a case of ectopic thyroid tissue in the gallbladder wall. We review the literature on ectopia of the thyroid and its rare occurrence outside the usual path of the migration of the thyroid anlage from the foramen caecum to the mediastinum. The importance of distinguishing ectopic thyroid from metastatic thyroid carcinoma is emphasized.
