There is a close relationship between Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) and papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). As the incidence of HT is increased in PTC patients, careful clinical monitoring for the patients with HT and meticulous histopathological examination of surgical specimens from these patients are required. The PTCs with Hashimoto's thyroiditis are characterized by female predominance, multi-focality, no extra-thyroidal extension, no lymph node metastasis, and better recurrence-free survival outcomes. Occurrence of HT with PTC is not related to age of the patient or size of the tumor. This chapter explores Hashimoto's disease's association with papillary thyroid carcinoma.
