Mucinous thyroid carcinomas are very rare and in some cases may appear in association with other tumors, but it does not represent a true primary thyroid carcinoma. A case of a 66-year-old white-skinned patient of rural origin is presented with a history of suffering from ischemic heart disease and arterial hypertension, for which she was undergoing medical treatment. He went to the office with an increase neck volume in the anterior region for several months, accompanied by malaise, gallop rhythm and sometimes dysphagia to solid foods. On the physical examination a tumor was found which occupied almost the entire right lobe, corresponding to a nodule of approximately 4 cm. in diameter, mobile with swallowing. The objective of this work is to present the surgical treatment performed to a patient affected by a thyroid gland mucinous carcinoma. Due to the low frequency of this entity, its publication is considered of interest to scientific staff.
