The article presents a case of a 70 year old woman presented for the radioiodine ablation of the skull metastases developed after total thyroidectomy for follicular carcinoma. The patient developed a large fronto-parietal tumour of the skull and other tumors grew up in the skull on the lateral wall of the left orbit and sphenoid sinus. The patient underwent external radiotherapy for a large right parietal tumor. Her skull's scintiscan shows multiple large uptake areas and extremely high thyroglobulin levels.
