The most common presentation of papillary carcinoma thyroid is a solitary thyroid nodule but it is also known to present as cystic metastatic deposits in the neck. It has an indolent course and good prognosis. Although ultrasound is a commonly used modality to detect thyroid nodules, it should be followed by Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of the thyroid, especially when they are associated with cystic lesions of the neck. We report a rare case of papillary thyroid carcinoma presenting as a cystic mass in the neck and associated with lymphangioma.
