The present case is of a 55-year-old female who underwent right hemi-thyroidectomy for a benign multinodular goiter 19 years before. Computed tomography showed the presence of a large posterior mediastinal mass which extended from the neck to the level of the right main bronchus adherent to the boyden branch of the right pulmonary artery. The patient underwent thyroidectomy through cervicotomy and right uniportal anterolateral thoracotomy. The mass was dissected free and then successfully removed. The patient was discharged 12 days post-operatively. There were no signs of recurrence at 6-year follow-up.
