Abstract: A gentleman in his 90s presented with a slowly enlarging goitre over 18 months, causing manifestations of superior vena cava obstruction, dysphagia and hoarseness of voice. Investigations were suggestive of a fibrosing thyroid pathology. Surgical management was avoided due to high surgical risk. Treatment included prednisolone and tamoxifen with palliative management in the event of further medical deterioration. This article illustrates the difficulties in diagnosing and managing fibrosing thyroid diseases.
