Carcinoma of the thyroid usually presents as a palpable thyroid mass. However, in rare cases patients with thyroid cancer present with metastases of the cervical lymph node as the initial manifestation. The metastatic papillary tumor in cervical lymph nodes stained positive for thyroglobulin indicates the presence of a thyroid carcinoma, usually in the ipsilateral lobe. We herein report a case of multiple metastases in papillary thyroid carcinoma arising in the lateral aberrant thyroid with no evidence of thyroid carcinoma in the thyroid lobe.
