Abstract

A case of immunoblastic lymphoma, involving only the thyroid and the adrenal glands, is presented. The patient had clinical symptoms and findings of Addison's disease, and computed tomography (CT) demonstrated bilateral adrenal tumoral enlargement. He also had euthyroid diffuse multinodular goiter. The diagnosis of the patient was based on the cytological examination of the aspiration materials from both endocrine glands. The patient received "m-BNCOD" chemotherapy regimen and replacement therapy for Addison's disease. At the end of three courses, a partial response was obtained.
