Papillary thyroid microcarcinoma is not uncommon
and constitutes almost one third of all differentiated
thyroid carcinomas. It is generally regarded as low risk
and usually an incidental finding from histopathology
examination. Some areas of management of this entity
remains uncertain and requires a multidisciplinary
approach. We present a patient who initially came to
us with symptoms of hyperthyroidism, later underwent
thyroidectomy for a suspicious lesion but was found to
have micropapillary thyroid carcinoma in another part
of her thyroid gland.
