Papaillary thyroid cancer is a rare lesion in children. It progresses slowly and its prognosis is relatively good. A painless nodule in the thyroid or in the neck is the usual first evidence of disease. Cervical lymph node involvement is usually present at the time of the initial diagnosis and is often bilateral. The lungs are the most common site of metastasis beyond the neck. The authors experienced four cases of papillary thyoid cancer in childhood. In two cases of four, they had the history of anti-tuberculous medication under the impression of miliary tuberculosis. Cervical lymph node was palpable in three cases. Lung metastasis was documented in two cases. They had been successfully treated by total thyroidectomy, radical lymph node dissection in three and subtotal thyroidectomy in one case. All of them were recieved. thyroid hormone after surgery and one had radioisotope therapy
Key Words: Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma, Lung Metastasis
