Traditionally Grave's disease was considered as protection against thyroid cancer. The incidence of papillary carcinoma thyroid in grave’s disease is 2.4%. Thyroid cancer occurring in grave’s disease has higher frequency of persisting or relapsing disease than thyroid cancers occurring in matched euthyroid control patients. Here we present a case of papillary carcinoma in a Grave’s disease patient presented with nodular goiter. [Int J Res Med Sci 2014; 2(1.000): 350-352]
