Papillary thyroid carcinoma is a common type of differentiated thyroid neoplasms with metastasis mostly described in the literature as occurring in the thyroid gland or in the surrounding cervical lymph nodes. We report a case of a 40-year-old lady who underwent thyroidectomy for papillary thyroid carcinoma 26 years prior to her presentation for solitary pulmonary nodule. Wedge resection of the nodule is consistent with metastatic papillary thyroid carcinoma. Although it is rare to have a remote history and a solitary lesion, it is vital to keep the possibility of metastasis in mind when such a presentation occurs.
