Abstract
High levels of hormones secreted by the adrenal cortex lead to hypercortisolism, among whose complications is Cushing's syndrome. Thyroid carcinoma is one of the malignant neoplasms of the thyroid gland, the most common type of which is Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), which is more common in women in the age group of 30-50 years. The course of the patient's symptoms ranges from asymptomatic to foreign body sensation, dysphagia, neck swelling, and voice change. The prognosis of patients with surgical procedures is good, and the five-year survival of patients is 90%. The concurrentincidence of several diseases in one person is a rare phenomenon. The reported article is the first very rare case of Cushing's syndrome, papillary thyroid carcinoma, and renal cysts.
