Warthin-like variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is one of the several variants of papillary thyroid cancer. A 36-year-old female came with history of thyroid swelling. Ultra sound showed a solid nodule in the right lobe. Thyroid profile was within normal limits. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) revealed papillary carcinoma in a background of lymphocytic thyroiditis. Patient underwent thyroidectomy. Histopathology proved it to be Warthin-like variant of PTC with nodal metastasis. This uncommon variant behaves in an indolent fashion. However, our case is unique as it showed nodal metastasis. Cytodiagnosis is challenging with rare reports of cases diagnosed on FNAC. Herein we document cytomorphology of this uncommon variant reported at our institution.
