Abstract

Carcinoma of the thyroid gland in children and adolescents is high biological aggression with frequent involvement of the regional lymph vessels, the presence of distant metastases and invasion to the gland capsule. Surgical treatment followed by radio-iodine therapy, and if necessary with TTH-suppressive therapy allows survival of absolute majority of the patients. The application of (131)1 therapy in the postoperative period suggests the necessity of permanent observation of the patients for the early diagnosis of possible neoplasms of other localizations.
