[Hot pseudonodule disclosing a thyroid cancer in a child].

Abstract

The authors report on a 11 1/2 year-old boy presenting with a palpable thyroid nodule. 99mTc and 131I scintigrams showed hyperfixation of this nodule (hot nodule). Surgical removal showed follicular-papillary carcinoma. These thyroid carcinomas revealed as hot nodules, seem to be exceptional.
