A 74-year-old woman was found to have exuberant papillary endothelial hyperplasia within her thyroid gland subsequent to multiple fine-needle aspiration biopsies of a Hurthle cell neoplasm.

We describe this unusual complication following fine-needle aspiration, and we delineate the clinico pathologic and differential diagnostic features.
