PRESENTATION OF CASE
A 54-year-old male patient came for routine ultrasonography with complaint of painless swelling in the neck, which is above the thyroid location and was progressively increasing. Thyroid profile was showing increased T3 and T4 levels.
USG Findings- Ultrasonography was done using 7.5 Hz linear array transducer for both gray scale and Doppler imaging. Thyroid gland noted with thyroid nodules in both the lobes of the gland. There is evidence of an oval-shaped lesion noted above the thyroid gland, which is showing equal echogenicity as of thyroid gland measuring 2.4 x 1 cm taking peripheral flow on colour Doppler with few cystic spaces in it. FNAC of the above-mentioned lesion from ectopic location has been performed, which showed evidence of thyroid nodule from the ectopic thyroid location.
