Mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphomas are low-grade, non-Hodgkin’s B cell lymphomas, mainly occurring in the gastrointestinal tract, but also in other tissues. We describe the management of a patient with hypothyroidism, tracheoesophageal compressive symptoms and chest tightness affected by a thyroid MALT lymphoma. The patient underwent debulking thyroidectomy and temporary tracheostomy in order to reduce dysphonia and dysphagia, followed by adjuvant chemotherapy and subsequently radiation therapy. A CT scan performed at the end of radiotherapy 6 months after surgery revealed remnants of residual tissue from the thyroidectomy without any pathological findings.
