Abstract: Introduction  Thyroglossal duct cyst (TGDC) is the most common congenital anomaly of the neck, and approximately 7% of all the adult population presents it. Ectopic thyroid tissue is found in the thyroglossal duct cyst wall in up to 65% of cases. This thyroid tissue has the potential to develop some type of malignancy, the most common of which is the papillary carcinoma of the thyroid. There are just over 270 cases of thyroglossal duct cyst malignancy reported in the literature. Objectives  We aimed to study … Show more

“…Though the patient was asymptomatic and the mass could not be palpated on physical exam, the findings were felt to be consistent with a thyroglossal duct cyst (TDC). Surgical excision of these lesions is recommended due to their potential for growth, infection, and malignancy . The patient underwent a Sistrunk procedure.…”

“…The role of preoperative fine-needle aspiration (FNA) is debated and has an only 53% diagnostic rate for detecting TGDC carcinoma though accuracy of diagnosis is improved by sampling the solid component if present [6]. Overall, TGDC malignancy is relatively uncommon with roughly 278 previously reported cases, the most common malignancy being papillary thyroid carcinoma in 75–80% of cases [4, 8]. Given the rarity, the optimal management is controversial.…”

“…Typically, TDCC is a neck mass that is enlarging flexible midline or slightly lateral (95% situated on the left side), most often without other worrisome symptoms. Still, some patients suffer from neck pain, dysphagia or relapsing throat infections [3,[6][7][8]. The mass usually moves on swallowing.…”

“…Regional lymphadenopathy due to the lymph node metastases of thyroglossal duct cyst carcinoma occur in only 7.7-15.0% of all reported cases, and local invasion rarely exists. Distant metastases have been described in less than 2% of all cases [4,8].…”
