A 13 year old male, presented to the OPD with a midline swelling in the neck since the last 5 years. A presumptive diagnosis of thyroglossal cyst was made clinically, which was later confirmed by ultrasound. Scintigraphy with99m Tc revealed that this midline mass was functional showing uptake, whereas no thyroid tissue was found in the normal location of the thyroid gland. Further evaluation revealed hypothyroidism. The patient was subsequently started off with thyroxine supplementation.
