RODRIGUEZ LOSANEZ, Jesús  and  CARBAYO GARCIA, José Juan. Tracheal curvature in chest X-ray. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2012, vol.5, n.2, pp.137-139. ISSN 2386-8201.

A 67 year old male patient sought medical attention at a primary health centre with symptoms of asthenia, anorexia, progressive weight loss, along with dyspnea upon slight exertion. He did not show symptoms of heart failure, did not present dysphagia or dysphonia and did not have fever. In a simple chest X-ray, compression and right curvature of the tracheal air column and discreet overinflation of both lung fields could be seen. An ultrasound scan was carried out at the health centre and intrathoracic goitre was visible. No other alterations in the mediastinum were found.

Keywords : Tracheal deviatión; Thyroid; Multinodular intrathoracic Goiter.
