Congenital Incidental Findings in Children that Can Be Mistaken as True Pathologies in Adults: Pearls and Pittfalls of Imaging Diagnosis.

Radiol Clin North Am 2020 May;58(3):639-652

Division of Thoracic Imaging, Department of Radiology, Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, 300 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA 20115, USA. Electronic address:

Congenital entities sharing imaging characteristics with true pathologies occasionally are discovered incidentally in adults. These may occur in the neck, chest, abdomen/pelvis, or musculoskeletal systems. Although these incidental findings share imaging features with true pathologic processes, up-to-date knowledge and assessment with the most appropriate imaging modalities generally allow a distinction between congenital entities that may be safely dismissed and pathologic processes requiring further assessment and treatment.

Intraoperative injection of combined fibrin sealant and methylene blue dye for surgery of branchial cleft cysts: A case report.

J Stomatol Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Sep 21;120(4):378-382. Epub 2019 Feb 21.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial, UKGM GmbH, University Hospital of Marburg, Faculty of Medicine, Philipps University, Marburg, Germany.

Differential diagnosis of a lateral neck mass, especially in paediatric patients, should include branchial cleft cysts (BrCC). It is often difficult to identify and completely resect all cystic components, especially when the lesion becomes infected and/or gigantic. Incomplete excision increases the likelihood of recurrences. Read More

Thyroglossal duct pathology and mimics.

Insights Imaging 2019 Feb 6;10(1):12. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Department of Imaging Sciences, University of Rochester Medical Center, 601 Elmwood Avenue, P.O. Box 648, Rochester, NY, 14642, USA.

Congenital anterior neck masses comprise a rare group of lesions typically diagnosed in childhood. Most commonly, lesions are anomalies of the thyroglossal duct, namely the thyroglossal duct cyst, along with ectopic thyroid tissue. Although usually suspected based on clinical examination, imaging can confirm the diagnosis, assess the extent, and evaluate for associated complications. Read More

Congenital Midline Cervical Cleft and W-Plasty: Our Experience.

Int J Otolaryngol 2018 2;2018:5081540. Epub 2018 Dec 2.

Department of Pediatric Otolaryngology, Robert Debre University Hospital, Paris, France.

Objectives: Congenital midline cervical cleft (CMCC) is a very uncommon congenital anomaly of the midline anterior neck, and although it has very pathognomonic features (including nipple-like protuberance), it could be mistaken for other congenital neck lesions, such as thyroglossal duct cyst and branchial apparatus anomalies. Thus, it represents a challenging diagnosis. In this 21-patient series, we discuss the clinical features of CMCC, its pathophysiology characteristics, and its modalities management. Read More

Primary Branchiogenic Carcinoma.

Klin Onkol Summer 2018;31(4):296-300

Background: Primary branchiogenic carcinoma (BC) is an exceptional diagnostic entity. In most cases, suspicion of BC is confirmed to be a cystic lymph node metastasis of an occult primary tumor. Martin and Khafif therefore established diagnostic criteria, emphasizing above all the importance of a histologically assessed transformation of cystic lining epithelium into an invasive squamous cell carcinoma in one pathological lesion after the exclusion of a primary tumor.

Cystic lateral neck mass: Thyroid carcinoma metastasis to branchial cleft cyst.

J Cancer Res Ther 2018 Oct-Dec;14(6):1437-1438

Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Akdeniz University School of Medicine, Antalya, Turkey.

Etiologies of lateral cervical masses are complex, most commonly these masses are branchial cleft cysts; however, metastatic thyroid carcinoma should be included in the differential. We report a case of lateral cystic neck mass in a 22-year-old female patient diagnosed as metastatic papillary thyroid carcinoma. The patient was diagnosed after she underwent surgery for branchial cleft cyst. Read More
