A 35-year-old house wife attended our clinic with oligomenorrhea for the last three months. She also complained of diffuse body ache, joint pain and decreased bowel movements. Very often she experienced choking sensation in the throat and had difficulty in swallowing solid food. On examination, goitre was absent but a globular pink colour mass was detected at the base of the tongue.
