Thyroglobulin (Tg) is frequently measured in follow-up of patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma. A low stimulated Tg level (<1 ng/ml) associated with normal neck ultrasonography is considered as the most reliable criteria for complete remission in low risk patients. We are reporting a case of pediatric thyroid cancer with diffuse skeletal metastasis associated with low serum Tg level bringing a point of caution in evaluation of patients with low Tg.
