About 20% of patients with anaplastic carcinoma
have had a prior differentiated thyroid cancer, and 20% to 30% have coexisting well-differentiated and anaplastic disease (3-7).
Differential diagnosis of primary thyroid angiosarcoma includes benign vascular lesions such as hemangioma and sclerosing hemangioma and malignant tumors such as thyroid anaplastic carcinoma
Inoculation of cadmium-treated cells into mice produced invasive, metastatic anaplastic carcinoma
with myoepithelial components.
Microscopically NHL needs to be differentiated from anaplastic carcinoma
and the solid variant of lobular carcinoma.
2) The biologic behavior of MCT is ranked between the well-differentiated thyroid neoplasms and aggressive anaplastic carcinoma
Many cases are misidentified as anaplastic carcinoma

OXiGENE's Combretastatin A4 Prodrug (CA4P) will be studied in combination with the chemotherapy drugs doxorubicin/cisplatin and radiation in patients with newly diagnosed anaplastic carcinoma
of the thyroid (ATC).
It may also arise from a long-standing goiter or a pathologic lesion with a focus of anaplastic carcinoma
in the thyroid gland.
