A rare case of paediatric oropharyngeal branchial cyst

Abstract

Author(s): Mohammed Alqarny*

Branchial cleft cysts are congenital epithelial cysts formed on the lateral part of the neck due to a lack of obliteration of the second branchial cleft during embryonic development. This is a case of a second branchial cyst anomaly in an 18-month-old girl who gave a brief history of acute intermittent upper airway obstruction and difficulty feeding. Paediatric oropharyngeal branchial cysts presenting as acute upper airway obstruction, stridor, and feeding difficulties are rare. Here we presented such a case. We also highlighted the importance of MRI in diagnosing the type and extension of the lesion. We also showed that cold-type dissection following bipolar electro cautery could produce good results in reducing the risk of complications and recurrence.
