Abstract

Sporadic medullary microcarcinoma of thyroid is a rare disease detected usually in 0.15% of all thyroid malignancy. We report a case of sporadic medullary microcarcinoma (MMC) of thyroid in a 24 year old male presenting as solitary thyroid nodule. There was no family history of medullary carcinoma of thyroid. Although medullary carcinoma in a familial setting have been reported, sporadic MMC is rare especially in a young patient.
