Abstract

Thyroid goitre usually presents as a mid-line lump in the neck with or without compressive symptoms. More commonly, the goitre can extend inferiorly into the mediastinum resulting in a retrosternal goitre. We present an unusual case of goiterous enlargement of the thyroid gland into the retropharyngeal space presenting as a retropharyngeal mass.
