  CASO CLINICO
  Thyroid Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma, A Case Report  
  Authors: Bertolino ML, Ávila RA, Wyse EP, Wior ME  
     
  Mucoepidermoid carcinoma is a tumor that occurs very rarely in the thyroid gland. There are only 47 cases reported in the literature until now, with different clinical course and treatment regimens. Here we present a patient with distant metastasis one year after the diagnosis, where we report the use of PET-CT for the first time in the evaluation of response to chemotherapy, proving to be a useful tool in monitoring and evaluating the response to it and achieved complete remission with the regimen used.
