Retrosternal goitre with subclinical hyperthyroidism presenting with trochanteric fracture.
We report a 55-year-old female who presented with trochanteric fracture of right femur. Examination and investigation revealed a huge retrosternal goiter with compression of great vessels which was asymptomatic for more than two decades. Subsequent investigation confirmed it as a case of toxic multinodular goitre with subclinical hyperthyroidism which is the possible cause of secondary osteoporosis and fracture. Unusual presentation makes the case reportable.
