INTRODUCTION: Tracheal invasion is an uncommon complication of thyroid cancer and can cause respiratory failure. We describe a case of an elderly female who presented with respiratory distress requiring intubation. Computerized Tomography chest (CT) showed large thyroid mass with subglottic extension. Bronchoscopy showed the subglottic mass was nearly totally obstructing the tracheal lumen. The mass was removed with electro cautery snare and Argo Plasma Coagulation (APC).The patient was extubated the next day without any complications.
