Letter to the Editor
AbstractI read with great interest the paper by Reza Ghalehtaki and coworkers in the edition 9/2017 of your journal. The authors showed a case report of skeletal muscle metastasisof papillary thyroid cancer (PTC)1. I congratulate them on disease detectionand treatment. At the same time, I would like to raise a few concerns related to thepublished data.
