Papillary thyroid carcinoma is the most common pediatric thyroid malignancy representing 85–95 % of cases [1]. Pediatric thyroid cancers typically present as neck masses with no associated symptoms and thus come to medical attention at widely varying stages of disease progression [2]. In contrast to adult papillary thyroid carcinoma, pediatric papillary thyroid carcinoma tends to be more aggressive at presentation with higher incidence of multifocality, lymphnode metastases and extracapsular extension. The following case details an aggressive presentation of pediatric papillary thyroid cancer [1].
