Although the clinical and histological presentations of these five cases are not rare, they do illustrate how varied thyroglossal duct cysts can be with respect to patient age, anatomic site, or associated signs and symptoms THYROGLOSSAL CYST AND SINUSES The most common clinical presentation of thyroglossal duct cyst is a painless midline neck mass while in case of thyroglossal sinus is midline discharging opening. Two patients presented with tender inflamed cysts, these patients treated with antibiotics initially until th An infected neck mass is the common presentation of thyroglossal duct cysts in adults. In a study by Ren et al. it was observed that the incidence of thyroglossal duct cyst was equal in males and females and had a bimodal distribution with similar incidence in children and adults. Adults were significantly more likely than children to present with a complaint other than mass or infection
Abstract. Introduction: Although thyroglossal cysts are very common in children and young adults, their presentation in the elderly is very rare and often goes undiagnosed.This may. Objectives: To determine if the clinical presentation of thyroglossal duct cysts (TGDC) varies between children and adults and whether this knowledge helps optimize the surgical management. Methods: We retrospectively identified all patients with TGDC managed in our department between 1992 and 2002. We reviewed the patients' charts and recorded their gender, age at diagnosis, clinical presentation, radiologic imaging, surgical management, post-operative complications, and recurrence rate and. Here, we present a rare case of papillary thyroid cancer present within a thyroglossal duct cyst along with a review of the current literature. 2. Case Presentation. A previously healthy 20-year-old female presented to the clinic with a 2-month history of an enlarging submental neck mass. She originally noticed the mass while pregnant Thyroglossal duct cysts usually do not drain through an external opening unless they have become secondarily infected, contrasting them from branchial cleft lesions.1 Additionally, the classic presentation for a branchial cleft cyst is that of a neck mass presenting anterior to the sternocleidomastoid muscle in a much more lateral location in the neck. However, these occasionally can appear midline, and conversely, thyroglossal duct cysts can appear more laterally placed in the neck Clinically, 16 cases (72.7%) showed typical presentation and six cases (27.3%) were atypical in the form of: thyroglossal duct cyst with intralaryngeal extension, intralingual cyst, ruptured cyst with subsequent chronic inflammatory changes within the anterior neck compartment, thyroglossal duct cyst with intracystic solid mass, inferiorly located cyst that was mobile with deglutition but not with tongue protrusion, and thyroglossal duct cyst presenting as lateral neck swelling
Thyroglossal duct cysts can arise anywhere from foramen cecum in the tongue to the suprasternal region . Embryologically, the thyroid gland develops as an epithelial proliferation on the midline at the anterior floor of pharynx and then migrates from the foramen cecum inferiorly to its final position anterior to the upper portion of the trachea in the 7th week of gestation A case report and review of literature regarding this unusual unusual entity is presented. An intralingual thyroglossal cyst is the rarest form of a thyroglossal cyst, and differs from a classical thyroglossal cyst totally in presentation and management
Intrathyroid thyroglossal ductal cysts (ITTDCs) are the rarest form of TGDCs, with only 5 cases having been described in the pediatric population. 3 ITTDCs are difficult to diagnose because they are rare, do not have any specific external physical characteristics independent from other thyroglossal ductal cysts and some brachial cleft cysts, and thyroid function tests are usually normal. 4 Thus, in order to diagnose an ITTDC, histologic evaluation of tissue must be performed Thyroglossal cyst usually presents as a midline neck lump (in the region of the hyoid bone) that is usually painless, smooth and cystic, though if infected, pain can occur. There may be difficulty breathing, dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), or dyspepsia (discomfort in the upper abdomen), especially if the cyst becomes large Thyroglossal duct cyst carcinoma: Case series. 40 (2): 151-156.

Thyroglossal Duct Cyst & Sistrunk, a Case Series; Personal Experience and Literature Review Volume 3 Issue 3 - 2015 Bhushankay Kathuria* The most common clinical presentation of TGDC is a gradually enlarging painless mass in the midline of the neck in children or young adults . The cyst is usually 2 to 4 cm in diameter In conclusion, this case illustrates that a lateral presentation of a swelling and restricted movement during tongue protrusion cannot exclude a diagnosis of thyroglossal duct cyst.

No postoperative complications were seen. One patient had recurrence. Conclusion: The most common presentation of thyroglossal cyst is a midline cystic swelling of th Thyroglossal duct cysts are generally slow-growing and asymptomatic solitary cystic midline neck masses but may become rapidly apparent after infection. A variability of presentation is very common. Occasionally, this cyst can present lateral to the midline, with infection, as a solid mass rather than cystic and may contain epithelial elements.

The mean age of presentation was 7.15 years in children and 26.85 years in adults. The male to female ratio was 1.9:1 among children and 1.8:1 among adults. The most common presentation in children was a thyroglossal fistula (53.48%) whereas it was a painless cystic neck swelling (89.29%) in adults Thyroglossal duct cyst (TDC) is a cystic expansion of a remnant of the thyroglossal duct tract. Carcinomas in the TDC are extremely rare and are usually an incidental finding after the Sistrunk procedure. In this report, an unusual case of a 36-year-old woman with concurrent papillary thyroid carcinoma arising in the TDC and on the thyroid gland is presented, followed by a discussion of the. Thyroglossal duct carcinoma is a very rare finding and its presentation is similar to that of a benign cyst, which is a relatively common developmental abnormality that may manifest as a midline, neck mass. In general the diagnosis of thyroglossal duct carcinoma is based on the pathologic examination of the mass, but needle aspiration cytology, ultrasound and computed tomography play a role in.

The thyroglossal duct cyst (TGDC) is the most common congenital anomaly of the thyroid. It is usually manifested as painless mobile midline neck mass. TGDC carcinoma was first described by Brentano in 1911 and Uchermann in 1915 . Malignancy is very rare and is reported in around 1.5% of cases as an incidental finding  Thyroglossal duct cysts (TDCs) arise in roughly 7% of the general population and are typically diagnosed in childhood within the first decade of life.

Such cysts are rare. Both patients were operated upon according to the methods of Sistrunk and Horisawa, and both had a satisfactory post-operative course
Papillary carcinoma arising in a thyroglossal duct cyst is a rare finding. Less than 100 cases have been reported in the English literature. In most cases the diagnosis is only established after excision of a clinically benign thyroglossal duct cyst : Twenty-seven children underwent surgery for thyroglossal cysts and fistulas during 1989-2000. Age, sex, length of history, presentation, preoperative investigations, operative findings, histopathology of the lesion and length of excised hyoid bone, postoperative complications and length of follow-up were recorded A remnant of a thyroglossal duct, usually a cyst thyroglossal duct cyst (TDC), is the most common congenital abnormality of thyroid gland development.

A thyroglossal duct cyst is a mass or lump in the front part of neck that is filled with fluid. While a baby is developing in the womb, the thyroid gland begins at the base of the tongue. Before birth the thyroid gland moves in the neck to its usual position below the thyroid cartilage and above the sternum Papillary carcinoma is common and seen in nearly 80 percent of the cases of the Thyroglossal cysts. Surgical excision with Sistrunk operation is the standard treatment of choice followed by subtotal or total thyroidectomy whenever indicated.

We report two cases of thyroglossal cyst with incidental finding of papillary carcinoma of thyroid origin due to their rarity with a review of literature. Keywords: Papillary carcinoma, thyroglossal cyst, thyroglossal cyst carcinoma, thyroglossal tract. The median age at presentation is 40 years The thyroglossal duct cyst is the most common anomaly in thyroid development. The possibility of malignancy within the thyroglossal duct remnants are 1-2% [ 1 ]. Till date, around 260 cases have been described in the literature. The first case was reported by Ucherman in 1915 [ 2 ]. The most common histopathological type is papillary.
Midline cystic structure which causes remodeling of the hyoid bone and splays the thyroid lamina Case Discussion This is a characteristic CT image of thyroglossal duct cyst Case Report: This is a report of an unusual location of thyroglossal duct cyst (supraclavicular region) associated with papillary carcinoma. Conclusion: Papillary thyroid carcinoma is the most common cancer of the thyroid gland (about 90% of cases) and represents also the most frequently encountered carcinoma in thyroglossal duct cyst
. A thyroglossal cyst is lined by pseudostratified, ciliated columnar epithelium while a thyroglossal fistula is lined by columnar epithelium. Based on one study 60% of TGDC were located adjacent to the hyoid bone, 24% between the hyoid and base of the tongue, 13% between the hyoid and pyramidal lobe of the thyroid gland, with the remaining 3%. Thyroglossal duct cysts account for approximately 70% of all congenital abnormalities of the neck. Anomalies of the second branchial fistula account for 90% of the developmental abnormalities of the branchial apparatus. But a simultaneous presentation of second branchial cleft fistulae with thyroglossal cyst is a very rare presentation Previous history of surgery for thyroglossal cyst was present for 2 patients. One patient had a rapidly enlarging mass in the midline of neck associated with pain. Pain and rapid increase in size of the mass are attributed to infection / inflammation 10.

Thyroglossal duct cysts can arise anywhere there has been failure of the complete obliteration of the tract, the commonest site being just above or just below the hyoid bone. Cystic dilations of this tract remnant result in the clinical presentation of a midline neck masses Thyroglossal cyst (TGC) is a fluid-filled remnant of the thyroglossal duct which runs from the foramen cecum at the fetal base of the tongue to the lower anterior cervical region   . TGC develops due to the anomalous formation and migration of the thyroid gland during embryogenesis. TGC is the commonest midline cervical mass found in clinical practice

We describe a case of thyroglossal duct cyst that was unusual in that the cyst was located far from the midline, it did not move on protrusion of the. Thyroglossal duct cyst (TDC) is usually diagnosed clinically, but ultrasonography is the preferred imaging technique in children. The 2 most common complications of TDC are infection and malignancy, the latter of which occurs in 1-4% of cases. Carcinoma occurs in approximately 1% of TDCs. TDCs are the most frequently encountered neck mass in. Familial thyroglossal duct cyst is a rare hereditary form of a benign congenital neck mass, known as a thyroglossal duct cyst (TDC). [rarediseases.info.nih.gov] Nearly all cases present sporadically in young children as slowly enlarging midline neck mass (summary by Greinwald et al., 1996). Millikan et al. (1980) reported the condition in a. two years respectively. Patients' characteristics, clinical presentations and outcomes were reviewed. Result: Two patients were encountered during the study period. Both presented with classical features of congenital midline thyroglossal duct cyst. The first patient had a localised tumour and was free of tumour recurrence for 6 year
