Rajeev Sen, Shilpi Bhargava, Richa Panwar, Namita Bhutani, Sucheta, Rajat Gauba.

Ectopic thyroid refers to presence of thyroid tissue in another region apart from its normal anatomic localization, that is, anterolateral to the second to fourth tracheal cartilage. Its prevalence accounts for 1 case per 300 persons and 1 in 4-8 patients with symptomatic thyroid disease. Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) and histopathological examination with immunohistochemistry (IHC) provide confirmatory diagnosis of ectopic thyroid and also helps to differentiate between normal thyroid tissue and metastatic well-differentiated thyroid carcinoma. Herein, we report a rare entity of aberrant thyroid tissue which came out to be normal thyroid tissue on histopathological examination.

Key words: aberrant thyroid, ectopic thyroid, scapula, histopathology.
