Abstract
Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of thyroid gland lesions has become a routine diagnostic method. And fine needle aspiration cytology is considered a safe, reliable and cost-effective means of selecting thyroid nodules with risk for malignancy. However, fine needle aspiration cytology of the thyroid may cause hemorrhage, infection, or trauma to adjacent structures. Hemorrhage sufficient to cause tracheal compression has not been reported. So we present a case of anterior neck hematoma causing tracheal compression after FNAC of the thyroid nodule.
Key Words: Fine needle aspiration cytology(FNAC), Neck hematoma, Tracheal compression
