Neoplasia in thyroglossal duct cysts or ectopic thyroid tissue deposits is rare but well recognized. The first known case of Hurthle cell adenoma in thyroglossal duct anomaly is described. The pathologic course and treatment of Hurthle cell tumors in general is reviewed. Treatment was based on the view that neoplasms in thyroglossal duct remnants represent changes in the ectopic thyroid tissue.
