Background: Thyroglossal duct cyst is the most common developmental anomaly of the thyroid gland, while thyroglossal carcinoma with local invasion and cervical metastasis is particularly rare. Case Summary: We present a female patient with parathyroid mass and swollen lymph diagnosed as papillary thyroid carcinoma with cervical metastasis. The 29-year-old patient was referred to our hospital due to a solid-cystic swelling in the submental region adjacent to the hyoid bone, which was not in conformity to a thyroglossal duct cyst as the solid part enhanced directly. Through the Fine- Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) evaluation from the tumor and lymph nodes, a diagnosis of papillary carcinoma and lymph nodes metastasis was made. The patient was subjected to a Sistrunk’s procedure, bilateral thyroidectomy, as well as bilateral cervical dissection. Conclusion: In such patients, the proper treatment protocols should be carried out after a definite diagnosis through complete preoperative examinations, involving computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, thyroid scintigraphy, and thin-needle aspiration biopsy particularly.
