17-year-old girl with thyroid tumor of the right lobe is described in this paper. Based on clinical picture anddiagnostic criteria the follicular adenoma was suspected pre-operatively as the most likely final diagnosis.Post-operative histopathological evaluation proved the presence of the oxyphilic type of follicular thyroid cancerwithin the follicular adenoma. The authors analyze the possibilities of the pre-operative discovery of thediscussed cancer.
