Although thyroglossal duct cysts are the most common form of congenital anomalies in the neck, diagnosis of cancer in such cysts is rare with a reported incidence of 1.3% of all thyroglossal cysts. Presence of the metastatic neck nodes is still more uncommon. Papillary thyroid carcinoma is the most frequently encountered carcinoma in thyroglossal duct cyst. We present a case of young female with papillary carcinoma in the thyroglossal duct cyst with metastatic lymph nodes in level IB.
