Abstract

Mucoepidermoid carcinoma is the most common salivary gland malignancy and it may arise anywhere that salivary tissue is present. Mucoepidermoid carcinoma has been reported to arise de novo within the thyroid gland, and here, we describe three cases of primary mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the thyroid, including clinical presentation, diagnostic evaluation, and clinical follow-up, along with a discussion of tumor origin and a review of the literature.
