Resumen

El carcinoma medular de tiroides es un tumor poco frecuente y con baja prevalencia, derivado de las células C parafoliculares secretoras de calcitonina. De comportamiento agresivo suele invadir ganglios linfáticos, tejido glandular adyacente y hacer metástasis a hueso, pulmón e hígado. Presentamos una paciente de 26 años con dicho tumor metastático a pulmón e hígado. A pesar del manejo quirúrgico y médico concomitante persiste con actividad de la enfermedad y niveles elevados de calcitonina. Llama la atención la escasa sintomatología.
