Brain metastasis from papillary thyroid carcinoma is uncommon. Concurrent cerebral and pulmonary metastases from papillary thyroid carcinoma is rare, especially in pediatric patients. We report a case of a brain metastasis revealed on post-therapy 131I scan in a 12 year old girl with thyroid cancer who also had diffuse pulmonary metastases which were partially responsive to sequential 131I therapy.
