An 80-year-old woman underwent a bilateral lung resection for metastasesoriginating from follicular thyroid cancer. The resection was performed 30years after right hemithyroidectomy to remove the follicular adenoma. ChestX-ray revealed a 30-mm mass shadow in the right lower lung filed. Chestcomputed tomography revealed a 32-mm mass shadow in right lung segment 10 S10and a 15-mm nodular shadow in left S10. Another partial lung resection of leftS10 and a right lower lobectomy were performed 3 months later. Although rarelyperformed, resection of bilateral pulmonary metastases arising from follicularthyroid cancer was conducted for this patient.
