Of 334 patients with thyroid carcinoma, 36 were age 65 or older. The sex distribution of the geriatric patients did not significantly differ from that of the younger patients. Older patients had significantly fewer papillary carcinomas and significantly more anaplastic and medullary carcinomas and lymphomas than younger patients. Papillary and follicular carcinomas of geriatric patients were large (4 cm or larger) significantly more often than those of the younger patients. Only one of 53 patients with very small (1 cm or less) papillary and follicular carcinomas was in the older group.
