Multinodular Goitre containing foci of Squamous Metaplasia

Dr Sampurna Roy MD

 

                                                                                                                      

 

Squamous cells in and around the thyroid can cause diagnostic problems, especially on head-and-neck region frozen sections.

It is necessary to demonstrate unequivocal pleomorphism before a diagnosis of squamous carcinoma can be made.

Squamous cells are seen as a metaplastic phenomenon in multinodular goiter, autoimmune thyroiditis, congenitally as solid cell nests  (ultimobranchial body remnants), and normally in the Hassall's corpuscles  of the thymus.
