Thyroglossal duct cyst cancer is one of the developmental anomalies that not occur frequently in the neck. The presence of isolated or concomitant thyroid cancer is unusual. We present the case of a young female patient with this condition. Presentation and management are described. The Endocrinology Service of the San Vicente de Paul Hospital is presently following her case.

Keywords : thyroglossal duct cyst cancer; papillary thyroid cancer.
