Abstract

A 62-year-old female was planned for total thyroidectomy; her clinical and ultrasonographic assessment did not reveal any retrosternal extension. Incidentally the preoperative chest radiograph revealed a retrosternal mass (Primary Intrathoracic goitre). Surgery included a total thyroidectomy, sternotomy and ICU care. She made an uneventful recovery after two days in ICU.
