Abstract

The number of significant incidental findings identified on radiographic examinations has increased. In total, 169 patients, 87 males and 82 females, with a mean age of 67.3 years (range, 17‑92 years), as well as 65 patients (38.5%), 43 (66.2%) female and 22 (33.8%) male had abnormal findings in the thyroid for one year in our institution. Thyroid nodules are the most common incidental findings on oral and maxillofacial evaluations. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination are frequently used to detect thyroid abnormality. The present study reported a case of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) detected following CT and MRI examination of a mandibular lesion. The CT examination of the oral and maxillofacial region included the thyroid, which must be examined carefully to detect various diseases, including PTC. Collaboration between radiologists and clinicians is important to manage these incidental findings.
