The coexistence of hyperthyroidism and thyroid cancer cannot be considered a rare finding. However, the presentation of thyroid cancer in a ''hot'' nodule is very rare. Thyroid carcinoma was observed in 2 patients who underwent surgery for solitary toxic adenoma. The clinical relevance of this association is underlined as well as its difficult clinical diagnosis. An analysis is made of the most appropriate surgical treatment of the various forms of hyperthyroidism, based on the risk of an associated malignancy. Hyperthyroid patients, particularly those affected by toxic adenomas, should be carefully evaluated to exclude the presence of concurrent malignancy.
