Saccular disorders extending beyond the thyrohyoid membrane are classified as external, or combined, based on to their extension beyond the thyrohyoid membrane and the proportion of the external to the internal component. The workup is the same as for internal saccular disorders and airway safety is of utmost importance. The open/transcervical approach is currently the treatment of choice for cases with relatively large external component. Endoscopic approach was also reported for combined lesions with a relatively smaller external component.
