In this case report, a new technique to be used in the treatment of hemorrhagic cystic thyroid

nodules among the other historical therapeutical modalities was described. A two-component fibrin sealant, which contains two of the proteins—fibrinogen and thrombin—that make blood clot, was introduced into cyst cavity after punction by a syringe under ultrasonography guidance. The follow-up ultrasonographies consequently showed the significant volumetric regression of the cyst in time. Hence, this method is recommended for the treatment of hemorrhagic cystic thyroid nodules as an alternative modality.
