While the relatively low mortality rate of thyroid cancer in general is due to the preponderance of well-differentiated carcinoma, a subset of rare thyroid tumors exist that exhibit aggressive behavior and poor prognosis. These require careful consideration and different treatment paradigms to optimize clinical outcome. Extremely rare types of thyroid cancer include thymus-like tumors, mucoepidermoid carcinoma, spindle cell tumor, mixed medullary fol-licular cancers, and teratoma. In view of the limited literature on their management these extremely rare types are not covered in this chapter.
