Hashimoto's thyroiditis presenting as solitary nodule is well documented. We report herewith a case of cystic change in the solitary thyroid nodule, confirmed by histopathology. As such no such case appears to have been documented. The finding of pleomorphic epithelial cells (hurthle cells) in the aspirate of such a cystic nodule of Hashimoto's thyroiditis may create a diagnostic dilemma and erroneous diagnosis of thyroid neoplasm with cystic change may be made if this possibility is not kept in mind.
