Papillary thyroid cancer metastasizing to cervical nodes coexisting with squamous cell carcinoma of the upper aerodigestive tract is a rare finding. To the best of our knowledge, nearly 43 such cases have been reported in the literature. We present two such cases that were managed in our hospital. The first was a case of carcinoma of the lower alveolus with papillary carcinoma thyroid; the other was a case of carcinoma of the hypopharynx with an associated papillary carcinoma. The rarity of its presentation along with the dilemma in the management in such a patient has been discussed here, with a review of the relevant literature.
