CONCLUSION: As previously suggested by CT and MR imaging findings, sonography reinforces that second BCCs in adults are not simple cysts but have a complex sonographic pattern ranging from a typical anechoic to a pseudosolid appearance. Second branchial cleft cysts (BCCs) present clinically as a soft-tissue swelling in the anterior neck Second Branchial Cleft Cysts: Variability of Sonographic Appearances in Adult Case The ultrasound examination confirmed the clinical diagnosis of a second branchial cleft cyst, demonstrating the cystic nature of the mass and excluding the presence of complications. For superficial lesions like these, ultrasound is the first-level imaging study of choice because it is non-invasive, rapid, low-cost, and does not involve exposure to ionizing radiation Second branchial cleft fistulae are congenital anomalies of embryonic development of branchial apparatus with the external cutaneous ostium in the lateral neck connecting to the tonsillar fossa. They can be diagnosed as a result of typical clinical presentation and the diagnosis can be confirmed various imaging modalities, including fistulography, ultrasound, CT and MRI

Four branchial cleft anomalies have been described in the literature, with the second branchial cleft cyst being the most common. 1-2, 6 Subclassification of second branchial cleft cysts was originally described in 1929 by Bailey with four subcategories based on location. 7 The type II second branchial cleft cyst is the most common, located. Second Branchial Cleft Cyst. This is the most common branchial cleft cyst, representing approximately 40-95% of branchial anomalies. The external punctum is found anterior and medial to the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) on the neck skin. Bilateral second branchial cleft cysts can be associated with branchio-oto-renal syndrome Ultrasound of a right-sided neck mass subsequently proven to be a second branchial cleft cyst. The color flow images showed displaced vessels and confirmed that the mass itself was not vascular. The ultrasound was only marginally useful in the diagnostic process for these purposes Branchial cleft cyst. Most branchial cysts are remnants of the second brancial cleft. Cysts at the level of the thyroid gland can be remnants of the third or fourth branchial cleft. Incomplete obliteration results in either a cyst (75%), a sinus or a fistula (25%). Cysts present as painless masses, sometimes appearing suddenly after internal. Second branchial cleft cysts are the most common branchial cleft anomalies. The characteristic location is at the angle of the mandible. Although congenital pathology, the presentation is usually during adulthood with neck swelling. Pain may be t..
Case1. and 2. Second branchial cleft cyst These are the most common branchial anomalies. They may present as cysts or fistulas, opening along the anterior border of the sternocleidomastoid muscle, in their middle third. There may be complete, incomplete internal and incomplete external fistula Cystic masses of the neck include a wide range of congenital and acquired lesions. Common benign neck cystic masses include thyroid cysts, thyroglossal duct cysts (TGDC), branchial cleft cysts, parotid sialocysts, ranulas, and lymphangiomas. Thyroid cysts are those thyroid lesions having a delimiting wall with a dominant fluid content
However, the patient was having certain radiographic features (like tail sign) commonly considered pathognomonic for a type III second branchial cleft cyst (BCC). However, contrast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound had contributory influence in the diagnosis of cystic schwannoma Branchial cleft cysts are one of the commonest congenital masses to present in the lateral neck, and usually occur in late childhood or early adulthood [2, 6, 12].They are typically lined by stratified squamous or respiratory tract epithelium resting on a band of lymphoid tissue, with part of the cyst wall resembling a lymph node .Second branchial cleft cysts are the commonest branchial. Branchial cleft cysts are congenital epithelial cysts, which arise on the lateral part of the neck from a failure of obliteration of the second branchial cleft in embryonic development. [ 1, 2] Phylogenetically, the branchial apparatus is related to gill slits. In fish and amphibians, these structures are responsible for the development of the.

The 1 st branchial cleft evolves into the external auditory canal; the pouch into the middle ear cavity, mastoid air cells and eustachian tube (Figures 4, 5); Work divided 1 st branchial cleft anomalies into Types 1 & 2.
The ultrasound examination confirmed the clinical diagnosis of a second branchial cleft cyst, demonstrating the cystic nature of the mass and excluding the presence of complications. springer In addition to the branchial cleft anomalies and lymph nodes discussed in part 1, paraganglioma, angiomatosis and neurogenic tumors are important. Branchial cleft cysts are the most common congenital neck masses arising laterally .Approximately 95% of brachial cleft cysts arise from the second branchial cleft and occur anterior to the mid-sternocleidomastoid .The majority of branchial cleft cysts are benign .Many are discovered incidentally, remain asymptomatic, and are excised as a matter of cosmesis Efficacy and safety of ethanol ablation PEI of Branchial Cleft Cysts. Image of a 50 ml Branchial cleft cyst in the right neck below the ear. Case: The above patient has a mass the upper neck . They occur when tissues in the neck area (branchial cleft) fail to develop normally. The birth defect may appear as open spaces called cleft sinuses, which may develop on one or both sides of the neck. A branchial cleft cyst may form due to fluid in a sinus Second branchial cleft cysts occur in the upper lateral neck. The external sinus tract opening will be in the upper lateral neck between the hyoid and thyroid cartilages, just anterior to a large neck muscle known as the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) muscle. If there is an internal opening, it will be in the back of the throat in the tonsil region
Branchial cleft cysts are congenital epithelial cysts, which arise on the lateral part of the neck from a failure of obliteration of the second branchial cleft in embryonic development.  Phylogenetically, the branchial apparatus is related to gill slits First branchial cleft anomalies (FBCAs) are rare congenital defects that account for less than 8-10% of all branchial cleft anomalies and arise due to incomplete closure of the ventral portion of the first and second branchial arches [1, 2].A number of classification systems have been developed in an attempt to assist preoperative assessment and surgical planning for FBCAs Branchial cleft cysts are the most common congenital neck masses arising laterally .Approximately 95% of brachial cleft cysts arise from the second branchial cleft and occur anterior to the mid-sternocleidomastoid .The majority of branchial cleft cysts are benign .Many are discovered incidentally, remain asymptomatic, and are excised as a.
The ultrasound examination conﬁrmed the clinical diagnosis of a second branchial cleft cyst, demonstrating the cystic nature of the mass and excluding the presence of complications. The patient was then submitted to excision.The pathology exam revealed features of a benign cyst.Post-operative evaluation was satisfactory. 1.. The described CT features are most likely representing infected second branchial cleft cyst type II, the most common type of this congenital anomaly. Classically, it is located at the anteromedial border of the sternocleidomastoid muscle, lateral.. Branchial cleft cyst Branchial cleft cysts are the most common non-inflammatory lateral neck masses seen in children 5. About 95% of these arise from the second branchial apparatus 1. A second branchial cleft cyst is typically seen high in the lateral neck along the anterior border of the sternocleidomastoid. I . Axial non-contrast MRI images (above) and sagittal contrast-enhanced MRI images below. There is a cystic mass filled with a simple fluid surrounded by a homogeneously enhancing thin-wall in the right neck anteriorly Second branchial cysts are the most common of the branchial cleft anomalies accounting for 90 to 95% of cases, and the most common cysts to arise in the neck. These cysts are lined by stratified squamous columnar epithelium, and occasionally contain hair, skin adnexa and keratin debris
Second branchial cleft cyst (2) Key facts. 95% of all branchial cleft anomalies arise from the second branchial cleft. Most common presentation: cyst, sometimes in combination with a sinus or fistula. Infection indicated by increased density, septations and wall thickening Seventeen branchial cleft anomalies (four of the first branchial cleft and 13 of the second branchial cleft) and 21 BCA mimics were evaluated. A definitive CT diagnosis of second branchial cleft cysts based on characteristic morphology, location, and displacement of surrounding structures was possible in 80% of cases
Mural thickness, the degree of cyst wall enhancement, complexity of the lesion, and adjacent soft-tissue edema all depend on the extent of associated inflammation or infection. Metastatic squamous cell lymph nodes can have an appearance similar to second branchial cleft cysts .

Branchial apparatus anomalies (BAAs) are categorized into 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th types based on location. 95% of BAAs arise from the second cleft and ¾ of these are cysts, which typically present between 10 and 40 years of age. Second BCCs typically present as a painless, fluctuant mass adjacent to the anteromedial sternocleidomastoid muscle. First branchial cleft anomalies are thought to develop as a result of incomplete obliteration of the cleft between the mandibular process of the first arch and the second arch. A sinus will have an opening in the upper neck or in the floor of the external auditory canal, and a fistula will have an opening in both of these sites First Branchial Cleft Cyst. Background • Results from abnormal closure of developmental branchial cleft • First branchial cleft cysts: - Second most common branchial cleft anomaly after the far more common 2nd branchial cleft cyst - Occur anywhere from the external auditory canal to the angle of the mandibl
Branchial Cyst - Standard Treatment Guidelines. Branchial cleft cysts are congenital epithelial cysts, which arise on the lateral part of the neck from a failure of obliteration of the second branchial cleft in embryonic development. Phylogenetically, the branchial apparatus is related to gill slits. (Branchia is Greek for gills) Anomalies of the second branchial cleft account for approximately 90% of all cases.3 Both MRI and CT scanning are preferred in the evaluation of branchial cleft cysts.4,5 choice of imaging technique depends on the regional preferences, MRI is preferred over CT for Type I first branchial cleft cysts and for parapharyngeal masses SECOND BRACHIAL CLEFT CYST: Second branchial cleft cysts are a cystic dilatation of the remnant of the 2nd branchial apparatus, and along with 2nd branchial fistulae and sinuses accounts for 95% of.. Anomalies of the second branchial arch are the most common with a prevalence of 90-95% of all branchial cleft cysts [2, 3]. Anomalies of the third and fourth branchial apparatus are the least common with a prevalence of 2-8% . Although branchial apparatus anomalies are a common cause of neck swelling, rarely do they extended into the. BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Previous reports have suggested that second branchial cleft cysts (BCCs) appear on sonograms as well-defined, cystic masses with thin walls and posterior enhancement. Previous CT and MR imaging findings, however, have indicated heterogeneity of these masses, and, in our experience, sonography also shows a similar variable appearance. In this communication, we report the.

second branchial cleft cyst was discovered and removed. DISCUSSION: The differential for patients presenting with symptoms consistent with PTA are broad. Branchial cleft cysts have been described in the literature to present as recurrent unilateral PTA. The cysts may be asymptomatic but commonly present as recurrent infected neck abscesses Branchial Cyst (Branchial Cleft Cyst) Some people have a skin tag or small dimple that is soft and smooth near the ear, under jaw, or somewhere in the neck. This non-tender structure is called a branchial cyst (or branchial cleft cyst), which actually originates from the four branchial clefts in early embryologic development
. All consist of arteries, nerves, muscle, skeletal tissue. If arches fail to fuse--> soft tissue anomaly on lateral neck may form, called branchial cleft anomaly. Anomalies include cysts (most common), fistulas, sinus tracts Cervical ultrasound was performed in 30 patients, and showed a cystic mass in 17 cases. Complement by CT was performed in 5 patients suggesting the diagnosis of second branchial cleft cysts in two cases. One patient had an MRI for a large supraclavicular mass. A fine needle aspiration biopsy was performed in 13 patients There is limited evaluation in detaiiling enhancing structures such as infected branchial cleft cysts and secondary abscesses. Ultrasound is less adept in detailing anatomy surrounding branchial. Abstract: Purpose: To review clinical features, the tools used in the diagnosis and the results of surgical treatment of second branchial arch anomalies. Material and Methods: The patients diagnosed with branchial cyst or fistula and managed surgically between January 2008 and December 2018 in the otolaryngology department of a tertiary academic center were reviewed retrospectively Branchial cleft cysts are the second most frequently encountered congenital abnormalities of the neck within the pediatric population (2,3,7-9). When uncomplicated they are typically visualised as well delineated cystic structures appearing centrally hypoechoic on US with posterior acoustic enhancement
First branchial cleft cysts develop as a result of the incomplete fusion of the cleft between the first and second branchial arches (see branchial apparatus). There may be a sinus with drainage to the external ear or skin. They typically occur within or close to the parotid gland or external auditory canal. Subtype The second branchial cleft arch overgrows the second, third, and fourth clefts and forms a cavity called the cervical sinus. During the seventh week of gestation, the cervical sinus is normally obliterated. However if there is incomplete involution, a congenital squamous epithelial lined cyst (branchial cleft cyst), sinus tract or fistulae can.
Branchial cleft cysts are congenital epithelial cysts, which arise on the lateral part of the neck from a failure of obliteration of the second branchial cleft in embryonic development. Phylogenetically, the branchial apparatus is related to gill slits Pathology report for one of the other excised masses was described as containing skin, fibro adipose tissue and skeletal muscle with squamous epithelial-lined track consistent with branchial cleft cyst. First branchial cleft anomalies account for less than 8% of all branchial abnormalities [1,2]. The external ear canal is a derivative of the. Second branchial cleft cysts (SBCCs) are congenital benign tumors that comprise up to 90% of all branchial cleft anomalies. SBCCs typically present in the lateral neck along the anterior border of the upper third of the sternocleidomastoid muscle. We describe a case of a SBCC presenting in an unusual location in the lower neck close to midline DISCUSSION. The branchial apparatus first appears in the developing embryo at 4 weeks. It consists of six paired mesodermal arches, separated internally by endoderm making up the four pharyngeal pouches, and externally by ectoderm making up the four branchial clefts. 4, 5 The first four arches proliferate, and the last two become rudimentary. Each arch and cleft gives rise to its own.
Classification. M/C second arch branchial cysts (90% cases) Bailey classification of second branchial cleft cysts: Type I (M/superficial): Anterior margin of sternocleidomastoid muscle, deep to platysma muscle; Type II (M/C): Along anterior margin of sternocleidomastoid muscle, lateral to carotid space and posterior to submandibular gland (classic location For example, second cleft cysts are discovered mainly in the second and third decades of life. A fourth branchial arch sinus usually opens to the skin low in the lateral neck anterior to the sternocleidomastoid muscle 5. If the opening is internal, however, the sinus ends in the pyriform sinus or cricothyroid membrane 5 Aug 25, 2018 - Second branchial cleft cysts are a cystic dilatation of the remnant of the second branchial cleft (see branchial apparatus), and along with second branchial fistulae and sinuses accounts for 95% of all branchial cleft anomalies. Clinical present..
A branchial cleft cyst was suspected based on the frequency of this cyst in the neck although development is usually along the anterior border of the sternocleidomastoid muscle. Diagnosis is difficult using imaging and clinical findings alone, and total excision is required for definite diagnosis 2nd Branchial cleft cyst. This is the most common branchial cleft cyst, representing approximately 40-95% of branchial anomalies. The external punctum is found anterior and medial to the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) on the neck skin. Bilateral 2nd branchial cleft cysts can be associated with branchio-oto-renal syndrome

Branchial cleft cysts are common in the neck, but those occurring within the thyroid gland are very rare; we report the occurrence of intrathyroidal branchial cleft cyst. A 42-year-old female presented with a slowly progressive enlargement of her left lobe of the thyroid gland, she subsequently underwent a hemithyroidectomy Second branchial cleft sinuses occur as sinus tracts with an opening on the skin of the neck during the first 10 years of life, and as cysts during the second 10 years (see Figure 1). A skin tag or abnormal cartilage may occasionally be present at the opening of the sinus, and occasionally the tract may be felt as a band in the neck Efficacy and safety of ethanol ablation PEI of Branchial Cleft Cysts. Image of a 50 ml Branchial cleft cyst in the right neck below the ear. Case: The above patient has a mass the upper neck Branchial cleft anomalies result from incomplete obliteration of the cleft (external) or pouch (internal) resulting in a cyst, sinus, or fistula. 2nd branchial cleft anomalies are the most common (70- 90%). The cutaneous portion is located at the lower third of sternocleidomastoid muscle on anterior border
