Abstract

Anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) is one of the most aggressive solid organ cancers with high mortality. Even after so much progress in chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgical techniques, we lose almost all patients within 2 years of diagnosis. The very low threshold for suspecting ATC and Prompt diagnosis are crucial factors in the management of ATC.
