Poorly differentiated thyroid carcinoma (PDTC) is a neoplasm of follicular cell that show limited evidence of structural follicular cell differentiation. They occupy both morphologically and behaviorally an intermediate position between differentiated (follicular and papillary) and undifferentiated (anaplastic) carcinomas. Preoperative fine-needle aspiration cytology can be helpful in planning treatment options and patient management. According to WHO, the occurrence is around 4-7% of all the clinically evident thyroid tumors. We report a case of PDTC with clinicopathological correlation.
