A 40-year-old female was evaluated for left thyroid swelling and, after left hemithyroidectomy (p T2 N0M0) with intermediate risk as per the American Thyroid Association Guidelines, was referred for completion thyroidectomy as the final histology was papillary carcinoma. A contrast-enhanced computed tomography evaluation of the neck was done, which revealed a suspicious nodule in the right lower pole of the thyroid gland, and a mention of anomalous right subclavian artery was reported. Intraoperative findings were confirmed.
