Hürthle cell, a rare form of thyroid carcinoma, has been reported only five times in patients with Grave's Disease. We present a case report and comprehensive review of the literature. Surgery should be considered in patients with both Graves' Disease and an expanding goiter. Initial high-dose radioiodine should be administered post-operatively in patients with Hürthle cell carcinoma. Serum thyroglobulin and 18-FDG total body PET imaging may be valuable in discovering residual or recurrent disease.
