Abstract

We present the case of a 57-year-old male with primary squamous cell carcinoma of the thyroid (PSCCT). Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) staining was strongly positive. Pharmaceuticals targeting EGFR may provide an additional therapeutic option for this rare disease with extremely poor prognosis. Laryngoscope, 119:89–90, 2009
