Anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) is a rare but highly lethal form of thyroid cancer. Since the guidelines for the management of ATC by the American Thyroid Association were first published in 2012, significant clinical and scientific advances have occurred in the field. The aim of these guidelines is to inform clinicians, patients, and researchers on published evidence relating to the diagnosis and management of ATC.

The specific clinical questions and topics addressed in these guidelines were based on prior versions of the guidelines, stakeholder input, and input of the Task Force members (authors of the guideline). The American College of Physicians Guideline Grading System was used for critical appraisal of evidence and grading strength of recommendations.

The guidelines include the diagnosis, initial evaluation, establishment of treatment goals, approaches to locoregional disease, approaches to advanced/metastatic disease, palliative care options, surveillance and long-term monitoring, and ethical issues, including end of life. The guidelines include 31 recommendations and 16 good practice statements. Key points to remember from the 2021 American Thyroid Association Guidelines for Management of Patients with Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer are provided in the posters attached.
