Thyroid-like low grade Nasopharyngeal Papillary Adenocarcinoma in a 20 year old student: A case report and review of literature
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.
