Papillary carcinoma in a huge intrathoracic goiter with tracheal stenosis and invasion. Case report.

Abstract

A rare case in tracheal invasion by a papillary carcinoma in an intrathoracic goiter is reported. Subtotal thyroidectomy and tracheoplasty were performed. Surgery should be considered as first-line treatment of intrathoracic goiter in order to avoid future compression of the respiratory tract and to remove possible concomitant malignant lesion.
