Metastatic involvement of the thyroid cartilage is rare due to the absence of vessels within the cartilaginous tissue. We present the case of a 65-year-old woman recently diagnosed with breast cancer referred for skeletal staging with F-NaF PET/CT. She was found to have multiple osteoblastic metastases along with thyroid cartilage metastasis. Rare thyroid cartilage metastasis on F-NaF PET/CT may have prognostic significance in cancer patients.
