A case of thyroglossal duct anomaly showing an unusual finding of foci of cartilage is presented. Although the concept of choristoma may explain the pathogenesis of cartilage within the present congenital anomaly, the histologic features were more in favor of a metaplastic process. In addition, the history of recurrent bouts of local inflammation supports the latter view.
