Large goiters are less common in the developing world due to the use of iodized salt. However, these are seen occasionally. Herein, we report a case of very large goiter identified in a cadaver. This case is also of interest due to the significant lateral displacement of the common carotid arteries (CCA) and the midline shift of the trachea. This case and the salient literature addressing this topic have been discussed.
