Abstract
Larynx and trachea invasion by thyroid cancer is an uncommon but difficult problem. There is no consensus on indication for the extent of surgery, particularly when there is a requirement for airway reconstruction. In general, the surgeon must decide between a complete ablation of the tumor at the cost of large-mutilation and a less radical dissection that leaves residual tumor to be treated with radiation therapy and additional radio-iodine.
