Synchronous Papillary Carcinoma in Thyroglossal Duct Cyst and Thyroid Gland Associated to Untreated Midline Cervical Cleft: A Case Report

Thyroglossal duct cyst is the most common anomaly in thyroid development. Majority is benign, but 1% may be malignant. Papillary carcinoma is the most frequent thyroid cancer. The synchronous occurrence of thyroglossal duct cyst and thyroid carcinoma is rare and the association with another congenital malformation is extremely rarer. A 41-year-old woman was referred to our department with complaints of a midline cervical abnormality. Clinico-radiological evaluation suggested a thyroglossal duct cyst with non-palpable nodules of thyroid gland and a midline cleft with fibrous cord. Sistrunk’s procedure along with a total thyroidectomy associated to an excision and Z-plasty closure of this congenital cervical cleft were performed, followed by post-operative radioiodine ablation.

Ectopia Cordis, Cleft Lip and Palate in a Patient with Gastroschisis - A Clinical Case

Gastroschisis (GQS) and omphalocele are congenital defects of the abdominal wall; The GQS is a defect usually on the right side of the umbilical cord, where there is exposure of the intestinal loops and there is no membrane that covers them; The omphalocele is a defect through the umbilical cord, in which there is a herniation of the intra-abdominal organs, which are covered by a membrane. GQS is generally associated with minor abnormalities of the digestive tract and generally does not have an association with severe congenital abnormalities. The diagnosis can be made prenatally by Ultrasound (USG). The objective is to present a clinical case of gastroschisis associated with severe midline congenital anomalies, such as ectopia cordis, which is not frequent in these patients [1-4].
