Ectopic intratracheal thyroid (EITT) is a rare abnormality, with few cases reported in the literature. We describe a case of a 36-year-old woman with dyspnea due to EITT. We also discuss the epidemiology, etiologies, presentation, diagnosis, and management of EITT. Because EITT is a rare cause of airway obstruction, we hope to remind the clinician of it by presenting this case.
