Laura Leach, Nico Jonas
A large lingual cyst was noted on the 22-week antenatal ultrasound, which grew in proportion to the foetus on serial imaging. An elective c-section was performed in view of possible airway obstruction, and the neonate initially required oxygen to maintain saturations. Aged 1 month, the baby developed significant breastfeeding difficulties secondary to rapid cyst and secondary tongue enlargement, completely filling the oral cavity. Fifteen millilitres of fluid were aspirated in clinic, resulting in reduction of tongue size and immediate improvement in feeding...

Cystic squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the lateral neck is considered metastatic human papilloma virus (HPV)-related oropharyngeal SCC (HPV-OPSCC) until proven otherwise. P16 immunohistochemistry is diffusely positive in those carcinomas and is used as a surrogate marker of active human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Thyroglossal duct cysts (TDC) are one of the differential diagnoses for cystic neck lesions. SCC arising from TDC is extremely rare. In this study, we report a p16-positive cystic SCC located in the midline neck...

OBJECTIVE: Open surgery is the most common treatment of thyroglossal duct cyst (TGDC), but it leaves obvious neck scarring. This study aimed to explore the feasibility and strategy of total endoscopic procedure by breast approach to avoid such scarring on the neck. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study reviewed 13 patients who underwent endoscopic resection of TGDC and 15 patients who underwent open resection of TGDC. We compared and analyzed factors including operative time, estimated blood loss, postoperative hospitalization, complications, and cosmetic effect...

Thyroglossal duct cyst (TDC) is the most common congenital anomaly of the thyroid gland and the most common congenital cervical abnormality in childhood. Carcinoma arising from a TDC is rare, which composes only 1% of TDC cases. Here, we are reporting a case of 50-year-old male with a swelling in the upper left neck region which was progressively increasing in size over 5 years. Ultrasonography report showed a large lobulated cystic mass. Internal echoes with calcification and there were no neck nodes. Thyroid gland was normal...

A 47-year-old woman was admitted to our institution with the chief complaint of a right cervical mass. Imaging examination findings showed a cystic mass of 25mm with a nodular lesion in the right cervical region. Therefore, we performed extirpation of the right cervical cystic mass to allow diagnosis of the lesion. The histopathological findings showed a partial thyroid tissue on the cyst wall covered with glandular epithelium or metaplastic squamous epithelium, and tumor cells proliferating in the papillary form...

RATIONALE: Ectopic thyroid carcinoma within a thyroglossal duct cyst (TGDCCa) is an extremely rare entity. Thus, there is no unified appropriate therapeutic strategy, and individual approaches are controversial. PATIENTS CONCERNS: We report the case of a 21-year old woman who underwent Sistrunk procedure for a thyroglossal duct cyst (TGDC). DIAGNOSES: During histological evaluation of the resected TGDC a papillary thyroid carcinoma was found...

Ultrasonography (US) of the neck is an accepted, useful imaging modality for many applications beyond its usefulness in thyroid disease. Two-dimensional US has been effectively used for evaluation of many types of neck conditions, and now, 3-dimensional US can be added to the imaging armamentaria. Three-dimensional US is useful in the evaluation of cervical lymph nodes, recurrent/residual thyroid neoplasia, parathyroid glands, parotid and submandibular glands, as well as thyroglossal duct cysts and other assorted palpable and visible abnormalities because of its unique capabilities, including multiplanar reconstruction, accessibility of the coronal view, volume calculation, and regularly spaced incremental slice evaluation...

Thyroglossal duct cysts are one of the commonest benign midline neck swellings. These are the remnants of the embryologic duct that fails to regress by the 10th week of fetal development. Generally, these are sporadic, slowly enlarging midline neck lumps, with half of them presenting before the age of 30. However, despite their relative frequency, reports of familial inheritance are rare. A review of literature reveals a total of 25 patients from 8 families showing a familial inheritance pattern worldwide. We describe here a 9th family with 5 affected patients taking the total number of cases to 30...

BACKGROUND: Thyroglossal duct cysts (TDCs) are usually resected through an incision over the entire protruding zone. The resulting scar is aesthetically displeasing, so we explored the use of endoscope-assisted excision of TDCs via a submaxillary vestibular approach. The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the feasibility, validity, and safety of this approach and to evaluate the follow-up results. METHODS: From January 2007 to August 2015, 16 patients with TDCs underwent surgical resection using a submaxillary vestibular approach...

OBJECTIVE: 1. Review our institution's experience with thyroglossal duct cyst (TGDC) excision. 2. Determine if TGDC recurrence rate is influenced by surgical technique, preoperative infection, or surgeon specialty. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of patients at a tertiary care children's hospital who underwent excision of neck mass with proven TGDC histopathology from 2005 to 2015. Patient demographics and presentation, preoperative workup, surgeon specialty, procedural details, lesion characteristics, and complication rates including recurrence were evaluated...

Malignant involvement of thyroglossal duct cyst is rare, still rarer is the synchronous malignant involvement of the thyroid gland. Although the Sistrunk procedure is often regarded as adequate, controversy exists of the need for an additional total thyroidectomy and radioiodine ablative therapy, the decision of which depends upon the presence of (i) suspicious thyroid gland nodule; (ii) presence of lymphadenopathy; or (iii) a previous history of neck irradiation. We report a 47-year-old woman diagnosed with papillary carcinoma within a recurrent thyroglossal duct cyst with infiltration into surrounding soft tissues and a suspicious thyroid nodule of the left thyroid lobe with no regional lymph node involvement...

Distinguishing between thyroglossal duct cysts (TGDC) and dermoid cysts (DC) sonographically can be challenging. We illustrate the three sonographic features in neck masses in children recently identified as being most suggestive of TGDC (septa, irregular wall and solid elements) and their corresponding histopathology. These three variables form a proposed predictive model for TGDC as a guide to surgical intervention. Pediatric radiologists should be familiar with these key imaging features, as compared with other imaging features described in TGDC also illustrated here, which are less discriminating...

Ectopic thyroid gland is a rare condition usually presenting with neck swelling or hypothyroidism. In most cases, ectopic thyroid tissue is the only functioning thyroid tissue, but it may rarely be associated with normal thyroid gland. Thyroiditis in an ectopic thyroid gland is very rare. Here, we describe a 13-year-old girl who was initially suspected, as a having a thyroglossal cyst. Thyroid functions were suggestive of thyrotoxicosis. She was diagnosed to have simultaneous occurrence of thyroiditis in the ectopic and eutopic thyroid glands...

The feasibility and effectiveness of transoral robotic surgery (TORS) in children with tongue base masses (TBMs) were evaluated. Eight pediatric patients who were treated with TORS for TBMs between January 2010 and January 2016 at a tertiary hospital included in the study. All pathologies were congenital lesions: four were lingual thyroglossal ductus cysts (LTGDCs), one was a minor salivary gland tumor, one was a vallecular cyst, one was a bronchogenic cyst, and one was an ectopic thyroid tissue. TORS was performed successfully in all cases...

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. These lesions can present as palpable cystic masses, infected masses, draining sinuses, or fistulae...
