EXOPHYTIC THYROID NODULE
An exophytic tissue grows outside towards the surface of an organ and the connecting tissue has similar functional features as the mother organ. A case of exophytic thyroid tissue in the submandibular area connected to the normal thyroid by a fibrous stalk has been described. However, the fibrous connecting band did not contain functional thyroid tissue, and hence questions the true exophytic nature of the swelling. We present a rare case of subplatysmal solitary thyroid nodule in lower anterior neck connected to the superior pole of right thyroid lobe by functional thyroid tissue.
