To the editor: After reading the August 1973 paper (Ann Intern Med 29:205-210) by Neinas and colleagues on the lingual thyroid, I wish to report other unusual findings in a patient with a lingual thyroid.
The patient, a 67-year-old white man, has a large area of calcification in his lingual thyroid (Figure 1), and, in addition, a surgically-proved and treated Zenker's diverticulum. He has had an idiopathic enlargement of the sella turcica for at least 7 years. Two pneumoencephalograms have failed to show air in the sella, and a past craniotomy at another hospital did not show suspected suprasellar extension
