In this article, we report a very rare case of left thyroid lobe with agenesis, adenomatous hyperplasia and coexisting papillary carcinoma of the right lobe. A 59-year-old asymptomatic woman with no previous thyroid surgery was evaluated sonographically. Ultrasonography and scintigraphy revealed an agenesis in the left lobe and multiple right lobe nodules with one of them diagnosed with papillary carcinoma.
