Abstract. The incidence of papillary carcinoma arising in a thyroglossal duct cyst is rare and occurs less than 1% of thyroglossal cysts. We report a case of cystic swelling in the mid-line neck in a young female patient. Fine needle aspiration of the cyst revealed colloid material and macrophages CT scan showed a cystic lesion with calcification. Histopathological examination of the cyst showed papillary carcinoma of the thyroid gland.
