The authors reported the case of 69 years old woman presented with subclinical hyperthyroidism. 99m-Tc pertechnetate scan
showed the abnormal focus of hot uptake in the left lobe, suggestive of a hyperfunctioning toxic thyroid nodule. Surgical
treatment was advised because of the size of the nodule as a more applicable solution. Histological findings showed papillary
thyroid carcinoma.
