Thyroid papillary carcinoma in lateral neck cyst: missed primary tumour or ectopic thyroid carcinoma within a branchial cyst?

  • Stan Sidhu (a1), Tong Fang Lioe (a1) and Barry Clements (a1)


We report a case of thyroid papillary carcinoma lying within a lateral cervical cyst for which no occult primary tumour of the thyroid was identified. We explore the possible diagnoses and include a discussion of how ectopic thyroid tissue may come to lie within a branchial cyst.
