Abstract

A 53-year-old woman was presented with several 0.3-0.6 cm-sized nodules within the right lobe of the thyroid. Histologic sections of the thyroid demonstrated multiple papillary microcarcinomas in the background of lymphocytic thyroiditis, with a small focus of Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH). Small LCH nodules were also found in the draining cervical lymph nodes. Although the association of LCH with papillary thyroid carcinoma in the thyroid has been reported, their co-existence with LCH in the draining lymph nodes is very rare.
