Abstract

Ectopic thyroid tissue is a rare congenital anomaly with extremely rare occurrence of dual ectopy. Authors present a case of a 13 year-old girl with anterior neck swelling since one year. Contrast enhanced CT demonstrated absence of normally located, bilobed thyroid gland, Instead two foci of ectopic thyroid tissue were seen in the lingual and pretracheal region. Imaging workup is of great value in diagnosing this rare entity.
