Abstract

We reported a rare case. A 70-year-old woman was suspected of struma ovarii on pelvic MRI, and thyroid scintigraphy revealed high uptake in the pelvic mass and large defect in the thyroid gland. She was operated for struma ovarii and thyroid cancer at the same time. In case of thyroid scintigraphy, the scanning of both neck and pelvis is useful to detect incidentally coexisting thyroid disease and struma ovarii.
