Local or regional anesthesia has long been recognized as a useful anesthetic option for thyroidectomy. This block was relatively confidential before the arrival of ultrasound. In our study, they were a series of five patients operated for thyroidectomy under bibloc of the intermediate and superficial cervical plexus associated with skin infiltration of the incision site. Conversion to general anaesthesia was required to control bleeding plus sedation with 05 mg midazolam for discomfort, verbal contact was maintained with patients and surgery was uneventful in the other cases. Cervical plexus block is a technique that can be used for thyroidectomy.
