Abstract

The patient was a 52-year-old woman with papillary carcinoma of the thyroid gland who underwent total resection of the thyroid gland, right radical neck dissection, and para-tracheal dissection. Three years postoperatively, she developed a fever and a painful mass was noted on her right chest. We considered that the symptom were due to a metastatic neoplasm in the paratracheal lymph nodes which had eroded the stemum and ribs. Radiotherapy was performed, and no recurrence was noted during a follow-up of 18 months. The findings in this case reemphasize the importance of para-tracheal dissection.
