PSAT294 Black Thyroid – Is It a Benign or a Malignant Finding?: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
Journal of the Endocrine Society
Black thyroid is a rare condition with fewer than 70 cases reported around the globe. Black thyroid is seen almost exclusively in patients upon minocycline ingestion, and the process has previously been thought to be generally benign. Despite the favorable impact of this drug on thyroid function, several studies have reported an association between black thyroid and thyroid cancer. Herein, we report a black thyroid associated with papillary thyroid cancer.
