Lingual thyroid is a congenital disorder of thyroid gland development, resulting of abnormal migration of the gland from the foramen caecum to its normal pretracheal location. In this paper we report a patient who presented a lesion located in the base of the tongue suggesting an ectopic thyroid that produced dysphagia and dysphonia. We discuss the different treatment recommended in the management of this pathology.

Key words: Ectopic thyroid, thyroid gland, lingual thyroid, dysphagia, dysphonia.
