We describe an unusual case of metastatic disease to the thyroid in 47 year old female who clinically presented as acute thyroiditis. No nodules were palpable and fine needle aspiration cytology of left lobe was performed. It showed metastatic deposits of papillary adenocarcinoma and was followed by total thyroidectomy. Histological examination revealed extensive intrasinusoidal deposits of papillary adenocarcinoma. Such atypical clinical and cytologic presentation may cause undue confusion with a primary neoplasm of the thyroid, mainly papillary thyroid carcinoma.
