Abstract

A 68-year-old male presented with a difficult airway secondary to a firm mass at the base of the tongue on intubation for an emergency general surgical procedure. Further workup confirmed a lingual thyroid with previous upper airway obstruction requiring a temporary tracheostomy. The mass was excised using transoral robotic surgery.
