Purpose of the Paper: To describe the clinical case of bronchial obstruction in an adolescent, whose condition was caused by an unusual problem — intermittent extrathoracic airway obstruction due to vocal-cord paresis that followed a total thyroidectomy.

Key Points: In pediatric patients, bronchial obstruction can be caused by external (compression) or internal (inflammation, bronchoconstriction, airway blockage, or neurogenic disorders) factors. The diagnostic algorithm to identify the cause of this disorder depends on auscultation findings suggesting difficulty in inhalation or exhalation, medical history, and data obtained from conventional examinations, including pulmonary-function tests and chest X-rays.

Conclusion: In certain cases, multidisciplinary interaction of pediatric allergy specialists, pulmonologists, specialists in functional diagnostics, and otolaryngologists is required in order to identify rare causes of bronchial obstruction.
