Abstract

Endoscopic thyroidectomy is considered appropriate for follicular neoplasms, but on occasion, it leads to unexpected complications such as seeding along the port insertion site. Only 4 cases of operative track seeding after endoscopic thyroidectomy have been reported. Furthermore, simultaneous seeding at both operative track of upper chest wall and operative bed is also very rare. We present a case of thyroid follicular adenoma seeding at both the subcutaneous tunnel of the upper chest wall and the operative bed after endoscopic thyroidectomy, with an emphasis on magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasonography with pathologic correlations.
