Thyroid papillary microcarcinomas (PMCs) usually follow a very benign clinical course and are rarely metastatic. Any case of PMC presenting with distant metastases without any rising thyroglobulin level should be suspected to have any other primary apart from the thyroid and a meticulous clinical and diagnostic approach should be considered to identify the second primary. We hereby present a case of 52-year-old female treated as PMC with metastatic liver lesion, which was initially thought to be of thyroidal origin. Later, it was diagnosed as a metastatic neuroendocrine tumor of unknown primary.
