Abstract

Low grade nasopharyngeal papillary adenocarcinoma (LGNPA) is a rare variant of nasopharyngeal adenocarcinoma with an excellent prognosis and a histo-morphologic similarity with papillary thyroid carcinoma(PTC). It can be  differentiated from PTC using ThyroidTranscriptionFactor-1 (TTF-1) and Thyroglobulin immunostains. We report a case of thyroid-like LGNPA in a 20 year old Nigerian student.

Keywords: Papillary Adenocarcinoma, Nasopharynx, Thyroglobulin, Thyroid Transcription Factor-1.
