Background: Thyroid lymphomas are a rare presentation in thyroid malignancies, among such lymphomas due to CLL are very rare Lymphomas account for approximately 2% of all malignancies of the thyroid gland, while the lymphomas with primary location in the thyroid gland constitute about 2.5% of all lymphomas.(1,2) Chronic lymphocytic B-cell lymphoma (CLL-B) is an extremely rare type of thyroid lymphoma (about 4% of cases)1 have been reported. Case Report: A 55 yr old female came with the complaints of weakness and swelling over the anterior part of neck, case was diagnosed as CLL, FNAC of the thyroid swelling showed lymphocytic proliferation bethesda grade 2. The patient was in Euthyroid state and coreneedle™ biopsy was done to confirm the diagnosis of lymphocytic infiltration of the thyroid. The patient was treated conservatively and is in regular follow-up. Conclusion: CLL presenting with thyroid swelling is very rare and the diagnosis needs to be confirmed by biopsy. The swelling needs to be managed conservatively and does not require surgery. Though the condition is rare, in any case of CLL the surgeon should always have suspicion of lymphocytic infiltration of thyroid rather than any other diagnosis. On reviewing the literature, this is the first case of thyroid lymphoma due to CLL is presented in India. Features of diagnosis and treatment is presented.
