US of Pediatric Superficial Masses of the Head and Neck.

Radiographics 2018 Jul-Aug;38(4):1239-1263

From the Department of Radiology, Kravis Children's Hospital at the Mount Sinai Hospital, One Gustave L. Levy Place, New York, NY 10029.

Superficial palpable masses of the head and neck are common in the pediatric population, with the vast majority of the lesions ultimately proven to be benign. Duplex ultrasonography (US) has emerged as the first-line imaging modality for the evaluation of superficial pediatric masses. Without utilizing radiation, iodinated contrast material, or sedation and/or anesthesia, US provides a means for quick and cost-effective acquisition of information, including the location, size, shape, internal content, and vascularity of the mass.

Preoperative discrimination of solitary cervical branchial cleft cysts from cystic lymph node metastasis often is challenging. Surgical excision of the cystic formation and consecutive histopathological examination of tissue specimens are the only means resulting in the correct diagnosis. However, in case of malignancies surgery on the lateral neck prior to the definitive treatment is considered to negatively influence the patients' outcome. Read More

Possible Estrogen Dependency in the Pathogenesis of Branchial Cleft Cysts.

Biomed Res Int 2017 19;2017:1807056. Epub 2017 Dec 19.

Institute of Pathology, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Corporate Member of Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Berlin Institute of Health, Berlin, Germany.

Background: Even though branchial cleft cysts are currently accepted as a congenital anomaly, there is often a long delay until clinical presentation; branchial cleft cysts classically appear in the second to fourth decade of life. Our observation of their occurrence in three pregnant women encouraged us to contemplate a possible hormonal influence.

Methods: Immunohistological analysis was performed for the evaluation of the estrogen receptor alpha (ER) in paraffin-embedded tissue specimens of 16 patients with a diagnosis of branchial cleft cyst, with three of them being pregnant. Read More

ENT Department Face and Neck surgery, Hospital August 20, 1953, University Hospital Ibn Rochd, Casablanca, Morocco.

Thyroglossal duct cysts followed by branchial cleft anomalies are the most common congenital neck masses encountered in practice, second branchial cleft cysts and sinuses are the most common type (LaRiviere and Waldhausen in Surg Clin North Am 92(3):583-597, 2012). Although both abnormalities are common individually, but rarely seen associated in same patient as described in our case. Congenitalcervical anomalies are important to consider in the differential of head and neck masses in children and adults. Read More

Comparison of the Retroauricular Approach and Transcervical Approach for Excision of a Second Brachial Cleft Cyst.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2017 Jun 15;75(6):1209-1215. Epub 2016 Dec 15.

Professor and Department Head, Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Kyungpook National University, Jung-Gu, Daegu, Korea. Electronic address:

Purpose: Although a retroauricular (RA) approach has been proposed for excision of a second brachial cleft cyst (BCC), no studies have performed a direct comparison of the results of the RA approach and those of the conventional transcervical approach. We evaluated the surgical outcomes of the RA approach under direct vision and demonstrate its benefits compared with the conventional transcervical approach for excision of a second BCC.

Patients And Methods: From January 2012 to May 2016, we enrolled 30 consecutive patients with a second BCC who underwent surgical excision as a primary treatment into the present prospective case-control study. Read More

Diagnostic imaging of benign and malignant neck masses in children-a pictorial review.

Quant Imaging Med Surg 2016 Oct;6(5):591-604

Department of Radiology, Alder Hey Children's Hospital, Liverpool, UK.

Neck masses are frequently encountered in pediatric medicine, and can present a diagnostic dilemma for the clinicians involved. There are several means by which neck masses in children can be subdivided, for example by age at presentation, anatomical location including compartments and fascia of the neck, their classical appearance when imaged, or by etiology. When imaging children the clinicians must be mindful of radiation exposure and as such ultrasound (US) is often attempted first. Read More
