A 14-year-old girl presented to the outpatient department with a midline neck swelling, clinically suspected to be a thyroglossal cyst. Routine ultrasonography of the neck showed the absence of thyroid gland in its anatomical position and the presence of lingual thyroid with multiple cystic changes. Computed tomography revealed an infrahyoid and lingual dual ectopic thyroid with the absence of thyroid in its normal anatomical location. Tc-99m pertechnetate confirmed the diagnosis of dual ectopic thyroid. Thus, ectopic thyroid, though rare, must be considered as a differential diagnosis for a thyroglossal cyst.
