BENTO, Alexandra  e  GONCALVES, Ana Paula. Asthma mimic: A clinical case report. Rev Port Pneumol [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.6, pp.1205-1209. ISSN 0873-2159.

Most mediastinal goiters are extensions of cervical goiters. Patients are generally female and only occasionally have symptoms4. Patients most commonly complain of a mass-like sensation, dyspnoea, dysphagia and cough1. The authors describe the case of a 67 year-old female who presented at the emergency room with dyspnoea, anterior cervical discomfort and tightness which had onset a few months prior but which had worsened in the last week. The patient cited a history of bronchial asthma, for which she was under medication, but the true diagnosis was mediastinal goiter.

Palavras-chave : Mediastinal goiter; tracheal compression; asthma.
