We present a case of classic papillary thyroid carcinoma in a 35-year-old patient who initially consulted dermatology for hair loss and dry skin, fatigue, and mild fatigue. The thyroid hormone report was standard, and the neck ultrasound reported two thyroid nodules and cervical lymphadenopathy TIRADS 4. The BAAF Bethesda V report. The patient underwent total thyroidectomy and left lymphadenectomy I-VI, classifying as pT2 (m) pN1b cM0, followed by adjuvant management with I-131 with the complete biochemical response at six months. In recent decades, thyroid carcinoma has increased in incidence.
