Abstract Papillary thyroid carcinoma is rare in children. Its clinical manifestation may deviate from that observed in adult patients. We present a 14-year-old girl with papillary thyroid carcinoma. We then discuss various distinctive sonographic signs that may aid diagnosis, and we discuss differences in clinical features between children and adults [added].
