Great vessels in the neck and upper mediastinum are involved either by invasion or encasement in malignant thyroid disease. Rarely benign conditions, like Riedel's thyroiditis, may involve them due to extensive extracapsular fibrosis. We report a rare case of carotid artery engulfment due to benign goiters, which is a largely unknown entity.
