Multinodular goiter (MNG), one of the disorders of the thyroid gland, is often detected as a mass in the neck, but sometimes produces pressure symptoms. We present successful anesthetic management of a case of an obese woman having MNG with retrosternal extension, in the setting of severe OSA, planned for total thyroidectomy. The complicated presentation of the disorder, with challenging airway management during the peri-operative period and a positive outcome is a reason for sharing this experience.
