A 43-year-old woman, with fibroid uterus and menorrhagia with no symptoms attributable to the respiratory system was posted for hysterectomy. Preoperative chest X-ray showed multiple rounded opacities in both lung fields. Thyroidectomy for papillary carcinoma thyroid was performed 20 years back. Further investigations revealed recurrence of thyroid cancer with bilateral lung metastasis.
