A 77 year old female presented with a rapidly growing thyroid swelling. The cytologic findings were suggestive of large cell lymphoma. The diagnosis of diffuse large B cell lymphoma was confirmed by histology and immunohistochemistry. Primary thyroid lymphomas are extremely uncommon neoplasms which if diagnosed cytologically can prevent unnecessary surgery.
