Papillary carcinoma is a well-differentiated type of thyroid carcinoma with very good overall prognosis. The commonest site of metastases is the lymph node, distant metastases being rare. We present a case of a 52-year-old male who presented with a solitary metastasis in the left para-sellar region and cavernous sinus more than three years after treatment of primary. Given the atypical radiological features and longstanding symptoms, a surgical excision was performed and focal radiotherapy was given after confirmation of the diagnosis. We discuss this case and review the relevant literature.
