(A) Chest CT demonstrated a round isoechoic nodule with contrast-enhanced rim at right lower lobe; (B) 18F-FDG PET/CT showed a hypermetabolic tumor with SUVmax up to 6.8 at right lobe; (C) Transverse view of thyroid echo revealed an ovoid isoechoic tumor at right lower thyroid, then fine needle aspiration disclosed atypical cells.
