Abstract

We present an 89-year-old patient who was suffering from severe dyspnoea and mild dysphagia due to tracheal and esophagus compression by a giant goitre. The patient was euthyreotic. A total thyroidectomy was successfully performed. The pathology examination revealed fibrosarcoma G1, which is an extremely rare tumor of the thyroid.
