Abstract

The management of 12 patients with medullary thyroid carcinoma is reviewed. All patients underwent total thyroidectomy. Local nodal and extracapsular spread was aggressively resected, followed by radiotherapy. No patient died from uncontrolled local disease. Prolonged survival after radical treatment is demonstrated even in the presence of distant metastases
