Goitre is a slow-growing thyroid mass, rarely presenting as an emergency. However, a superimposed infection or acute intralesional bleeding can cause the mass to increase rapidly in size. We report a patient with long-standing multinodular goitre who presented with bleeding from the left thyroid mass. Despite all appropriate measures, the continuous bleeding finally stopped upon thyroidectomy.
