Resumen

GUERRA MESA, José Luis. Carcinoma anaplásico de tiroides: Consideraciones de actualidad. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2001, vol.40, n.2, pp.99-105. ISSN 0034-7493.

Thyroid anaplastic carcinoma is one of the well-known and more aggressive tumors. Drug therapy, radiotherapy or surgey, applied in an independent way, are practically ineffective in the treatment with curative intention, but each of them can offer different grades of palliation. Although there is not a standard therapeutics, the aggressive combined modality treatment allow us to obtain better results. The main goal of the therapeutic effort should be the achievement of the local cervical control of the disease to avoid death from asphyxia and, secondly, to prolongue life, which almost invariably ends as a cause of extensive metastatic disease. At present, the proper and energetic treatment of the diseases causing it, mainly the differentiated carcinomas of this gland, are the best prophylaxis of this so abominable cancer

Palabras clave : THYROID NEOPLASMS [surgery]; THYROID NEOPLASMS [radiotherapy]; THYROID NEOPLASMS [drug therapy]; COMBINED MODALITY THERAPY.
