Abstract

Endoscopic thyroidectomy is gaining greater acceptance because of its excellent cosmetic result. As the surgical skill and understanding of the endoscopic cervical anatomy has improved, the surgical indications for endoscopic thyroidectomy have recently expanded to small size thyroid cancer. Despite the many advantages of laparoscopic surgery, there have been incidental reports about recurrences at the site of insertion of the laparoscope or other instruments in other cancers. Herein, we present a case of 25-year-old woman who had recurrent cancers around the operative bed and subcutaneous tunnel after endoscopic thyroidectomy.
