Thyroglossal duct cyst is a congenital cyst originating from patent duct remnant during embryological migration of thyroid gland from tongue to neck via foramen ceacum. Malignancy arising from this duct is very rare, whereas in case of malignancy, papillary thyroid carcinoma is encountered mostly. In this paper, we report a 46-year-old female patient who referred to our clinic with a midline neck mass whose histopatological evaluation revealed papillary thyroid carcinoma arising from the thyroglossal canal cyst.
