Sclerosing mucoepidermoid carcinoma with eosinophilia (SMECE) is a recently described carcinoma of the thyroid gland associated with Hashimoto's thyroiditis and considered to have a relatively indolent clinical course. We present a 65-year-old female, clinically euthyroid, who presented with a thyroid swelling since last 8 months along with right-sided cervical lymphadenopathy. Fine needle aspiration cytology suggested poorly differentiated carcinoma along with the involvement of the lymphnodes while histopathological examination showed features of SMECE with metastatic deposits in the right-sided cervical lymphnodes.
