Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma (PTC) is the frequent type of neoplasm touching the thyroid gland.
It grows gradually and has a clinically drony course. While rare, its aggressive forms with local
invasion or distant metastases may occur in <10% of the low-risk and up to 33% of the highrisk
cases. Metastatic thyroid carcinoma rarely involves the orbit. Herein we report the case of a
61-year-old woman presenting with proptosis of the left eye as a primary manifestation orbital PTC
metastasis. Sporadically, the distant metastasis is culpable for the primary clinical evidence of the
disease in such typical cases.
