Traditionally ‘lateral aberrant thyroid’ tissue present in cervical lymph nodes in the face of a clinically normal thyroid gland is held to be a metastasis from an occult primary thyroid carcinoma. A patient in whom follicular thyroid tissue was found in a lymph node lateral to the carotid sheath in the presence of a thyroid gland which was histologically free of cancer is herewith presented. 
Lateral aberrant thyroid having papillary carcinoma: a case report
TLDR
Ectopic thyroid is defined as the presence of thyroid tissue in locations other than the normal anterior neck region that may become goitrous or associated with thyroid dysfunction, hypofunction or hyperfunction but malignancy is uncommon particularly primary thyroid carcinomas is less than 1%.
Pathology of Thyroid Gland
TLDR
The role of intraoperative frozen section evaluation is limited in the management of thyroid nodules especially follicular patterned lesions, and ancillary studies such as immunohistochemistry may be helpful in this differential diagnosis.
Ectopic Thyroid Presenting as a Submandibular Mass
TLDR
A rare case of ectopic thyroid in the right submandibular region is reported; it was diagnosed after total thyroidectomy and successfully treated through surgery.
Tumors of Thyroid Gland: Non-C cell Tumors
TLDR
Non-C cell tumors of the thyroid are discussed and thyroid cancer progression from differentiated carcinoma to poorly differentiated and anaplastic carcinoma is well known and is also presented along with clinical and pathological correlations.
Solitary posterior triangle neck mass as the rare sole presentation of papillary thyroid carcinoma
TLDR
A case of middle aged man presented with a posterior neck mass which warranted total thyroidectomy and neck dissection, and Histopathology report of the excised mass confirmed the diagnosis of, papillary thyroid carcinoma.
The Role of Fnac in Diagnosis of Papillary Carcenoma of Thyroid
Fine-needle aspiration of the thyroid gland is safe, inexpensive, minimally invasive, and highly accurate in the diagnosis of nodular thyroid disease. Limitations of FNAC are related to the skill of

Ectopic Thyroid Tissue: Immunohistochemistry and Molecular Analysis
TLDR
Lack of common carcinoma-associated mutations supports benign nature of this entity and BRAF, HBME-1, and galectin-3 IHC are accurate and helpful when not enough tissue is available for molecular studies.
Case Report Solitary posterior triangle neck mass as the rare sole presentation of papillary thyroid carcinoma
TLDR
Papillary thyroid carcinoma is the most common differentiated thyroid malignancy and offers good prognosis and the presentation is usually consistent with an enlarged thyroid, mostly solitary nodule which biochemically euthyroid and radiologically normal appearance.
INCIDENCE OF PAPILLARY THYROID CARCINOMA AMONG PATIENTS UNDERWENT TOTAL THYROIDECTOMY IN ALDIWANIYAH TEACHING HOSPITAL
TLDR
Papillary thyroid carcinoma being the most common thyroid malignancy with 14.35%, with Xray the significant risk factor for papillary thyroid cancer during childhood, with the female patients more frequently affected and more common in solitary thyroid nodule, and it’s advisable to do central neck dissection.

Is 'lateral aberrant thyroid' always metastatic tumour?
TLDR
A case is presented which suggests that so-called 'lateral aberrant thyroid' tissue actually represents a metastasis from a malignant tumour of the thyroid gland.
LATERAL ABERRANT THYROID: METASTASIS TO THE LYMPH NODES FROM PRIMARY CARCINOMA OF THE THYROID GLAND
TLDR
The following 2 cases recently seen at the Johns Hopkins Hospital confirm the work of King and Pemberton and provide additional evidence that papillary cystic thyroid tissue in the lateral cervical region is often metastatic from an identical primary tumor in the thyroid.
Management of ectopic thyroid nodules.
TLDR
The histologic condition of the nodule combined with intraoperative examination of the ipsilateral thyroid lobe can reliably guide therapy and the old dictum concerning lateral aberrant thyroid representing metastatic cancer should be removed from or modified in review texts and surgical examinations.
