Endoscopic thyroidectomy is gaining popularity, but it can increase the risk of certain complications. Carbon dioxide insufflation in the neck may cause adverse effects on hemodynamic and ventilatory aspects. We report the anesthetic course and complications that were encountered during endoscopic thyroidectomy. Although the surgery was successful, the patient developed signs of hypercarbia, subcutaneous emphysema and pneumothorax.
