Abstract

We present a rare case of an intra-parenchymal thyroid epidermal cyst presenting with a left recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy. There was a complete recovery of the nerve function following surgical excision of the lesion. Theories of aetio-pathogenesis of the cyst and underlying mechanisms responsible for the nerve paralysis are explored.
