Although thyroglossal duct cyst (TDC) is a common problem, papillary carcinoma is a very rare finding. The management detail and protocol is yet to be well defined. This paper aims to highlight the experience of King Abdulaziz University Hospital in papillary carcinoma of TDC in the past five years. Four patients out of 315 patients reviewed retrospectively were diagnosed to have papillary carcinoma of the TDC. Fifty per cent had involvement of the thyroid. One patient (25%) was a child. Conclusion: Papillary carcinoma of TDC has a favorable prognosis if managed properly by an experienced team.
