Abstract

Reversibility of a Vocal Cord Palsy Following Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology of a Clinically Impalpable Thyroid Nodule

Vocal cord paralysis due to benign thyroid lesions, though very rare can also cause vocal cord palsy. Surgical intervention to the lesion is usually needed to release the pressure. We report a rare case of a vocal cord palsy caused by benign thyroid nodule that was detected only on computed tomography scan. Reversibility of vocal cord palsy was noted at two months after ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration for cytology of the deep-seated thyroid nodule.
