This patient presented with a neck mass diagnosed as a papillary thyroid carcinoma by fine-needle aspiration. Preoperative computed tomography revealed a papillary carcinoma within a juxtathyroidal thyroglossal duct cyst. After surgery, the initial diagnosis was papillary thyroid carcinoma. After correlation with the computed tomography, the diagnosis was revised to a papillary thyroid carcinoma plus a follicular adenoma in a juxtathyroidal thyroglossal duct cyst. This case demonstrates the need for close clinical and radiographic correlation in such a complex case.
