Radiological assessment of difficult airway in thyroid malignancy: A retrospective case study

Thyroid malignancy with limited disease can be managed primarily by surgery but diseases with loco regional and distant metastasis with complications is difficult to manage. Airway management in large and retro-sternal thyroid malignancy with tracheal compression is often met with challenges, where radiological assessment plays a vital role in emergent airway control. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can play an important role in preoperative and post-treatment assessment of thyroid malignancy. The radiologist as well as the treating surgeon should be aware of the pathological behavior of thyroid carcinoma, extent of disease involvement, airway patency and the characteristic imaging appearance of the primary tumor and metastases.
