Secondary sternal lesions are extremely uncommon, especially thyroid cancer. Our case is a 31 years old male patient undergoing thyroidectomy thrice and radioiodine treatment thrice. A suprasternal mass was found; the uptake of upper manubrium is strong at radioiodine treatment but borderline low at positron emission tomography. The lesion was proved to be a solitary metastasis from thyroid papillary carcinoma. According to recent literature, metastasectomy isn?t only a curative or palliative procedure but maximizes the effect of subsequent radioiodine treatment.
