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...

Cystic lesions involving the tongue base are rare, generally presenting in pediatric patients, and they may encompass different pathologies such as ranula, lingual ectopic thyroid, thyroglossal duct cyst (TDC), dysontogenetic cysts, benign, and malignant tumors.This paper describes the case of a 19-year-old girl with phonation impairment and mild dysphagia due to limited tongue protrusion and movements. Radiologic examinations revealed a bulky cystic lesion at the base of tongue with displacement of extrinsic lingual muscles...

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...

Thyroglossal duct cyst carcinoma is rare and occurs in just 1% of cases with thyroglossal duct cysts. It is not always possible to distinguish a thyroglossal cyst harboring malignancy from its benign counterparts unless biopsied, thus posing the dilemma. Currently there is no clear consensus on the optimal management of thyroglossal duct cyst carcinoma. Here we present the case of a 69-year-old female who presented with a midline neck mass and dysphagia and was found to have papillary thyroid cancer in the biopsy specimen of the neck mass...

Thyroglossal duct cysts (TGDCs) are present in ~7% of adults and develop from the midline migratory tract between the foramen cecum and anatomic location of the thyroid. Thyroid tissue can be identified in 2/3 of TGDCs, and up to 1% develop associated malignancy, 90% of which are papillary thyroid carcinoma. Cases of follicular and anaplastic carcinoma have been documented, but there are no reports of medullary thyroid carcinoma arising in a TGDC. This is presumably due to the distinct embryologic origin of parafollicular C-cells, from which medullary carcinoma arises...

Lingual thyroglossal duct cysts are a rare and potentially difficult to manage tongue base lesion. We report a case of transoral robotic surgical excision of a lingual thyroglossal duct cyst, in an adult patient. A 68-year-old man presented with a large base of tongue mass, with appearance on ultrasound and computed tomography consistent with a lingual thyroglossal duct cyst. We describe the surgical technique for transoral robotic excision of the cyst. The cyst was completely excised, and the patient had a smooth recovery...

A 69-year-old man presented with bulging of the right oropharyngeal wall, which revealed cytopathologically malignant cells. The man underwent MRI and F-FDG PET/CT, which demonstrated a cystic parapharyngeal lesion with an F-FDG-avid soft tissue component and right cervical lymph node. The patient was operated on and showed thyroid cancer in normal thyroid tissue, compatible with a papillary thyroid carcinoma in a lateral thyroglossal duct cyst and 2 ipsilateral lymph node metastases. Despite its rarity, papillary thyroid carcinoma in a thyroglossal duct cyst should be kept as one of the differential diagnoses in patients presenting with parapharyngeal cystic lesion...

Objective Although thyroglossal duct cysts (TGDCs) are relatively common, malignancies within these lesions are infrequent. As a result, there are no large-scale series describing clinical characteristics. Our objectives were to perform a systematic review of the literature evaluating patient demographics, pathology, management, and prognosis of these patients. Data Sources PubMed, Embase, Cochrane reviews, and Google Scholar were searched for relevant articles. Articles meeting inclusion criteria were reviewed for data detailing epidemiology, treatment, and outcomes...
