The scalp metastasis of follicular thyroid carcinoma is a rare condition and the lesion should be differentiated from primary skin tumors. It account for 10–20% of all thyroid malignancies and is most commonly seen in female of 40–50 years of age. We present a case series of four cases showing cutaneous metastases from follicular thyroid carcinoma in patients presenting with a nodular thyroid mass and scalp swelling. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of thyroid gland and scalp nodule, both shows repetitive microfollicles and clusters of follicular epithelial cells. The cases were diagnosed as scalp metastasis from follicular thyroid carcinoma on FNAC.
