Intrathyroid Parathyroidal Carcinoma (PC) is an extremely rare entity. Preoperative diagnosis can be difficult, particularly, in case of thyroidal nodule without clinical or biological signs of hyperparathyroidism. We share our experience with a case of metastatic intrathyroidal PC, in a 53 year-old female, mistaken for a thyroidal tumor. Histopathological examination with immunohistochemical staining confirmed the diagnosis of PC. Signs of hyperparathyroidism should be routinely searched in the presence of thyroidal nodule. Surgery is the mainstay of the management of this pathology with close surveillance.
