Hu ZI, Bangiyev L, Seidman RJ, Cohen JA - Case Rep Oncol Med (2015)

Bottom Line: Additional imaging subsequently revealed the presence of thyroid nodules and bilateral breast cancers.Genetic testing later confirmed the diagnosis of Cowden syndrome.This case illustrates the importance of the overlap between LDD, Cowden syndrome, thyroid disease, and breast cancer.

ABSTRACT
We report a case of a 37-year-old woman presenting with dysphagia and thyroid masses who was subsequently diagnosed with Lhermitte-Duclos disease (LDD) based on MRI scan and histopathology. Additional imaging subsequently revealed the presence of thyroid nodules and bilateral breast cancers. Genetic testing later confirmed the diagnosis of Cowden syndrome. This case illustrates the importance of the overlap between LDD, Cowden syndrome, thyroid disease, and breast cancer.

Mentions: CT, MRI, and fine needle aspiration of the thyroid masses revealed bilateral nonmalignant nodules measuring 1.9 cm and 1.7 cm on the right side and 2.2 cm and 2.3 cm on the left (Figure 1). The nodules abutted the esophagus bilaterally.
