AbstractDistant metastasis is uncommon in differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) and 7% to 23% of DTC patients develop distant metastasis. The remarkably good prognosis and long-term survival in DTC are significantly reduced in patients with distant metastasis as those at the pelvic site. We report the rare case of a patient wth follicular thyroid cancer initially diagnosed as a pelvic mass. Turk Jem 2011; 15: 23-
