Abstract

A young patient, suffering from thyroid carcinoma 24 yr after radium treatment of the neck, is presented. The cancer appeared in the area which had been irradiated, in spite of the fact that in this case, the thyroid was exposed to a relatively low dose of radiation. The importance of ionizing radiation and of its carcinogenic effect in the juvenile thyroid is discussed.
