Lingual thyroid is a rare congenital disorder displaying ectopic thyroid tissue at the base of the tongue. This is the most common location for ectopic thyroid tissue and is usually the only thyroid tissue present. This is a case report of a 16-year-old female who presented with nasal congestion. Fiberoptic laryngoscopy showed swelling at the base of the tongue and an ultrasound examination of the neck was without visible thyroid tissue. A 99mTc-pertechnetate scintigraphy confirmed the clinical diagnosis. As the patient was euthyroid and without symptoms active surveillance was planned.
