Metastasis from prostate to thyroid gland is very uncommon. Here we report a 77-year-old man who was admitted to the hospital because of a nodular goiter. A fine-needle aspiration biopsy of the nodule showed metastatic prostatic adenocarcinoma. This is the second case of a metastatic prostate carcinoma to the thyroid gland.
