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.

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

[Observing effect of treatment of the second branchial fistula with endoscopic resection].

Lin Chung Er Bi Yan Hou Tou Jing Wai Ke Za Zhi 2014 Mar;28(6):418-9

Objective: To explore synergic effect of treatment of the second branchial fistula with endoscopic resection.

Method: All patients of the second branchial fistula were scanned in neck with CT (computed tomography), we injected ioversol-320 from the entrance of the second branchial fistula in front of sternocleidomastiod into the second branchial fistula, then scanned the neck with CT (computed tomography), and rebuilding the picture of the second branchial fistula, to prepare for the operation. 9 patients of the second branchial fistula were operated under general anesthesia with endoscopic resection.

Cervical bronchogenic cysts mimic metastatic lymph nodes during thyroid cancer surgery.

Ann Surg Treat Res 2014 May 24;86(5):227-31. Epub 2014 Apr 24.

Department of Surgery, Thyroid Cancer Center, Gangnam Severance Hospital, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Purpose: Although congenital bronchogenic cysts in the cervical region, especially in the thyroid or perithyroidal area, are rare, distinguishing them from other cervical cystic lesions (e.g., thyroglossal duct and branchial cleft cysts) and metastatic cervical lymph nodes is difficult preoperatively.

[Cysts in the posterior triangle of the neck in adults].

Acta Otorrinolaringol Esp 2015 Mar-Apr;66(2):106-10. Epub 2014 May 18.

Servicio Otorrinolaringología, Hospital Universitario Puerta de Hierro- Majadahonda, Madrid, España.

Cystic lesions of the posterior triangle are a pathologic entity whose diagnosis is made in the first two years of life. Its presentation in adulthood is an incidental finding and the differential diagnosis includes cystic lymphangioma, lymphatic metastasis of thyroid cancer and branchial cyst. Often with the finding of a cervical lump, FNA is made before diagnostic imaging is performed, however, this procedure is not always advisable. Read More

Cystic schwannoma of the recurrent laryngeal nerve: a rare finding posing diagnostic difficulties.

BMJ Case Rep 2014 Apr 25;2014. Epub 2014 Apr 25.

Department of Surgery, Rijnland Ziekenhuis, Leiderdorp, The Netherlands.

A 49-year-old woman with a painless mass in the neck was examined by the surgeon. Imaging and cytology prior to surgery suggested the mass to be either a thyroid cyst or a branchial cleft cyst. After surgery, the patient reported a hoarse voice and the pathologist confirmed the removed lesion to be a cystic schwannoma of the left recurrent laryngeal nerve. Read More

Evaluation and management of neck masses in children.

Am Fam Physician 2014 Mar;89(5):353-8

University of Utah School of Medicine, Salt Lake City, UT, USA.

Neck masses in children usually fall into one of three categories: developmental, inflammatory/reactive, or neoplastic. Common congenital developmental masses in the neck include thyroglossal duct cysts, branchial cleft cysts, dermoid cysts, vascular malformations, and hemangiomas. Inflammatory neck masses can be the result of reactive lymphadenopathy, infectious lymphadenitis (viral, staphylococcal, and mycobacterial infections; cat-scratch disease), or Kawasaki disease.

Spontaneous resolution of a branchial cleft cyst without intervention: a previously unreported outcome.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2014 Apr 7;52(4):379-81. Epub 2014 Mar 7.

Maxillofacial Unit, Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth PO6 3LY, UK.

Branchial cleft cysts typically present as a persistent mass in the anterior triangle of the neck. Diagnosis is made by imaging and fine needle aspiration cytology and is confirmed histologically after excision. We report a branchial cleft cyst in a 27-year-old woman that resolved spontaneously over several weeks without surgical intervention. Read More

Imaging of ectopic thyroid tissue and thyroglossal duct cysts.

Radiographics 2014 Jan-Feb;34(1):37-50

From the Department of Radiology, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, 200 Hawkins Dr, Iowa City, IA 52242.

When a child or young adult presents with a mass in the anterior portion of the neck, diagnostic considerations include a thyroglossal duct cyst and ectopic thyroid tissue. These entities are often suspected clinically, and imaging provides an opportunity to evaluate the extent, confirm the diagnosis, and evaluate for complications. Imaging characteristics of a thyroglossal duct cyst as a simple cyst and of ectopic thyroid tissue as a hyperattenuating soft-tissue mass can help identify these lesions at computed tomography (CT); however, intrinsic magnetic resonance, CT, and ultrasonographic imaging characteristics alone cannot be used to confirm the diagnosis.
