A rare case of brain metastasis of thyroid papillary carcinoma is reported. The cerebral metastasis was surgically treated without irradiation despite the presence of a spinal metastasis. No recurrence was demonstrated by computed tomography 1 year postoperatively. We suggest that surgery is indicated for a brain metastasis of thyroid papillary carcinoma even if other metastatic lesions are present.
