A case of mediastinal ectopic thyroid presenting with a paratracheal
In the Surgicel group of patients, six weeks after the surgery, a painful mass was found in one patient, in the paratracheal
region on the left side.
A chest radiograph ordered to evaluate for lung metastasis revealed cardiomegaly, a sclerotic aortic knob, and a mass-like abnormality of unknown etiology in the right paratracheal
Infection of the subcarinal, paratracheal
and parabronchial lymph nodes is thought to result in caseative necrosis and abscess formation with eventual rupture into the oesophagus and trachea.
Patients were monitored for intraprocedural and postprocedural complications like: hemorrhage, stomal infection, injury to adjacent structures, arrhythmias, transient hypoxemia, transient hypotension, paratracheal
insertion, pneumothorax, sub-cutaneous emphysema, loss of airway, accidental decannulation, tracheal ring fracture and new lung infiltrate or atelectasis.
3) was found in 2 lymph nodes in the right hilar region and in 1 lymph node in the lower right paratracheal
aculeaticarpa mainly has axial paratracheal
vasicentric parenchyma, while in M.
Chest radiograph features suggestive of PTB include one or more of the following: perihilar and/or paratracheal
nodular shadows, streaky and nodular shadows, diffuse bilateral patchy opacities, homogenous opacities in any of the lung fields with or without features of pleural effusion, and miliary shadows.
Further analysis revealed right-sided vocal fold immobility, a large right-sided thyroid mass, paratracheal
lymphadenopathy, and multiple lytic lesions of the thoracic vertebrae (figure 1).
We dissected the level 4 lymph nodes (delphian/prelaryngeal, pretracheal, and paratracheal
lymph nodes) using the robotic system.
A solitary nodule in the paratracheal
region usually points towards a thyroid lesion.
Multiple marginally enlarged lymph nodes were noted at pretracheal, right paratracheal
, subcarinal region and at aortopulmonary window; but once again, the aetiology of SVC syndrome remained undiagnosed as no lymph node or mass was found to compress SVC.
