The presence of multiple malignancies of different histologies occurring synchronously is very rare and is reported in limited numbers across the literature. We hereby report a case presenting with papillary carcinoma of thyroid gland and mucoepidermoid carcinoma of parotid gland accompanied by regional lymph node metastasis of both the aforementioned malignancies. Recognition of such tumors is quintessential as the management and prognosis vary.
