Abstract:

Poorly Differentiated Thyroid Cancer (PDTC) is an infrequent and aggressive form of thyroid malignancy, characterized by histological features that lie between those of well-differentiated and anaplastic thyroid cancers. PDTC in pediatric and adolescence is even more rare and its clinical manifestations, histological features and outcomes are not well known. This case series of pediatric and adolescent PDTC provides a comprehensive examination of the clinical manifestation, diagnostic challenges, therapeutic approaches, and outcomes linked to PDTC, as shown by three unique cases from a single tertiary care center in Saudi Arabia.
