Primary thyroid lymphoma is a rare neoplasm consisting of 1%–5% of all thyroid neoplasms. These are predominantly B-cell in origin. It is curable without surgery. The literature search shows it to be presenting as rapidly developing thyroid mass. It has been shown to be associated with autoimmune thyroiditis. The rarity of this condition mandates it to be differentiated from other rapidly developing thyroid malignancies to recognize it early as it is curable. The treatment consists of chemotherapy, radiation, or both combined with excellent results.
