Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An elderly woman with a diffusely enlarged goiter and multiple miliary nodular lesions on chest x-ray showed Ga-67 accumulation in the right thyroid lobe. Histologic findings obtained after total thyroidectomy and open lung biopsy revealed papillary carcinoma in the left lobe with pulmonary metastases and adenomatous nodules in the right lobe. This is the first report of Ga-67 accumulation in adenomatous goiter.
