Treatment options for large, compressive goiters are currently limited to surgery and radioiodine administration. Classically, the first-line option has been surgery, with radioiodine therapy being reserved as an alternative treatment in patients with high surgical risk. We describe the case of an 81-year-old woman with a large, compressive multinodular goiter and hyperthyroidism, substernal extension and associated co-morbidity, contraindicating surgery. We review the efficacy of different treatment options for compressive multinodular goiter, as well as the potential secondary complications.
