Mucin-secreting papillary adenocarcinoma of the hyoid bone: a unique case

  • Ian Burnell (a1), Alun Tomkinson (a1), Margaret Hourihan (a2), Mark Robinson (a2) and Anthony Douglas-Jones (a2)...


We present a unique case of a mucin-secreting papillary adenocarcinoma of intestinal type which has invaded and completely destroyed the hyoid bone and metastasized to the cervical lymph nodes bilaterally. The tumour is believed to have originated from a malignant thyroglossal duct remnant, and was managed with surgery and radiotherapy. We describe the case and discuss the literature regarding hyoid bone tumours.
