- 1.1. Most lateral cervical cystic lesions (so-called branchiogenic cysts) in the head and neck are cystic alterations arising in lymph nodes. The term, “branchiogenic cyst” is an all inclusive one and should not imply branchial cleft or pouch origin, but rather one of location. Lateral cervical cyst appears to be a more accurate designation. The majority of these cysts show a stratified squamous cell epithelial lining with a subjacent lymphoid or lymph nodal tissue
- 2.2. The first known case of a lateral cervical cyst detected at birth is presented.
- 3.3. Lateral cervical cysts can appear at any age and should be included in the differential diagnosis of any lateral cystic mass in the neck. The treatment is complete surgical excision avoiding injury to adjacent vital structures.
