A 46-year-old female patient presented multinodular goiter with symptoms of compression that had been progressing over the previous 2 years; lab work was suggestive of subclinical hyperthyroidism. After ultrasound and computed tomography, a cervical-mediastinal mass measuring 20cm in craniocaudal length was observed to be compressing the trachea and esophagus, displacing the supra-aortic trunks and cardiac structures caudally, between the C4 and D8 vertebrae (Figs. 1 and 2).
