Conclusion

Squamous cell carcinoma of the thyroid is an extremely rare, aggressive, and highly lethal neoplasm. Though primary SCTC may coexist with papillary and anaplastic thyroid cancer, pure SCTC, occurring solitarily without other tumors, is extremely rare. Computed tomography plays an important role in detection and characterization of the lesion, extrathyroid invasion, and metastases.
