AbstractFollicular adenomas are the most common benign thyroid neoplasm but are unusual in children. However, other rare degenerative lesions and those of developmental origin can also present as thyroid masses. This article reports the first described pediatric thyroid adenochondroma. A 3-year-old female presented with a hard mass in the right lobe of her thyroid with nondiagnostic imaging and cytology findings. She underwent a right thyroid lobectomy uneventfully. Final histopathology examination confirmed an adenochondroma. To the best of our knowledge, an adenochondroma of the thyroid gland in a child has not been previously reported in literature. Though a rare and benign entity, thyroid adenochondromas present clinically with many features concerning for malignancy. Therefore, these lesions should be considered in the differential diagnosis of pediatric thyroid masses. Copyright: The Author(s) 2019.
