This paper aims to Review the Epidemiology of Anaplastic Thyroid Carcinoma (ATC): Its Occurrence and Malignant Growth. Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC) is the most forceful variation among thyroid malignancies. (1) With detailed death paces of 70% to 90 %. (2) ATC might emerge either anew, on top of long-standing goitre, or as dedifferentiation on top of intermittent separated thyroid disease. ATC is an extremely interesting threat with top occurrence is in the 6th and seventh many years of life, with most impacted patients north of 65 years old and female orientation. ATC typically presents as a quickly extending neck mass. Generally speaking, the execution of the patient ought to be considered alongside the degree of the infection when careful resection is thought of. Radiation treatment has been recommended to diminish the dreariness and mortality from locoregional confusions of ATC. However, Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma is one of the most rapidly developing and dangerous tumours. It is also known as undifferentiated thyroid carcinoma because the cells do not appear or behave like ordinary thyroid cells.
