Abstract

The authors present a rare case of follicular carcinoma of the thyroid gland with metastasis to the frontal bone. Attention is drawn in particular to the clinical picture as well as to the value of imaging examinations - scintigraphy and computer tomography - for diagnosing the remote metastases of follicular carcinoma of the thyroid gland. The authors emphasise the importance of radical surgery treatment, based on total resection of the thyroid gland combined with simultaneous excision of the metastasis from the frontal bone, supplemented by radioactive iodine therapy to achieve good distant results of the thyroid’s follicular carcinoma treatment.
