Abstract
Cervical branchial cleft cysts are uncommon lesion that are developed from remnants of branchial apparatus in embryonal period. These cysts are found in infancy, childhood and adult by recurrent symptoms related to inflammation. It is difficult to find these cysts with antenatal ultrasonography and differential diagnosis from other cervical cysts is difficult too. We experienced a case of fetal cervical branchial cleft cyst that was found with antenatal ultrasonography and diagnosed with surgical biopsy, so we report our case with brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Cervical branchial cleft cyst, Antenatal ultrasonography
