Figure 1: 99m-technetium-pertechnatate thyroid scan anterior (a) and lateral (b) view revealing a midline focus of tracer uptake corresponding to the palpable neck swelling suggestive of ectopic functioning thyroid tissue. No tracer uptake was noted in the region of the thyroid bed. In addition, a small linear streak of tracer activity was seen to extend superiorly (a-arrow)
