Abstract

Thyroid core needle biopsy (CNB) is commonly used in diagnosis of thyroid neoplasia, and despite its low complication rate, the complications can be fatal. Here, we report on the surgical management of thyroid artery bleeding after core needle biopsy of a thyroid nodule. A 58-year-old woman who underwent core needle biopsy presented with neck bulging and pain that developed two hours after biopsy. A large hematoma surrounding her right superior thyroid artery was detected.
