Thyroid paragangliomas are distinctly rare primary thyroid neoplasms with nearly 75 cases reported worldwide. Due to their similar embryological origin and cytohistomorphology with other thyroid neoplasms, they may pose great diagnostic challenges for pathologists, radiologists, endocrinologists, as well as surgeons leading to unnecessary aggressive therapy. With recent advances in molecular genetics, the prognostic significance of such seemingly innocuous thyroid neoplasms has been better understood. In this manuscript, we describe such a case and present a systematic review of all reported cases till date giving an update on our current knowledge regarding their diagnostic pitfalls, pathology, and molecular genetics.
