ABSTRACT
Although the reported number of malignant lymphoma of the thyroid has been increased, primary malignant lymphoma of the thyroid associated with chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis has been sporadically reported since its first description by Graham in 1931. The apparent coexistence of these two conditions has undoubtedly been noted by other observers. And they suggested that malignant lymphoma of the thyroid might arise from the lymphoid tissue ina wide variety of preexisting thyroidal disease. This report was made to record a case of primary thyroid lymphoma recently seen in this department with special emphasis on the associated thyroiditic changes in the uninvolved portion of the gland, which suggest the antecedent presence of chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis.
