Thyroglossal Duct Cyst Carcinoma: A Systematic Review of

Thyroglossal cyst is considered the most common congenital cyst in the neck. They usually presents with a painless, asymptomatic mid line swelling that characteristically moves with swallowing and protrusion of the tongue. Thyroglossal cysts are usually asymptomatic but liable to develop complications Thyroglossal duct cyst (TGDC) is the most common congenital anomaly in the neck . TGDCs originate from the thyroglossal duct tract, which usually disappears between the 8th and 10th weeks of gestation. If, however, it did not disappear, thyroglossal duct epithelium will persist and it may form a cystic mass

Thyroglossal duct cysts most frequently present in childhood as painless midline swellings around the level of the hyoid. Classically the cyst moves upwards on protruding the tongue. Here we report a novel case of a thyroglossal cyst in an adult in whom the history, examination and fine needle aspiration cytology were typical of a traumatic. Abstract.

Download to read the full article text THYROGLOSSAL DUCT (TGD) remnants are the most common midline neck masses seen in children. While they are usually present in the first 2 decades of life, they can be present at any age. Clinically, these lesions present as a midline mass in the vicinity of the hyoid bone, but are also found in the submental area or as low cervical masses

The disease is often misdiagnosed as a branchial cleft deformity, thyroglossal duct cyst, or other skin diseases. It has the following characteristics: skin defect at the midline of the anterior neck, a skin tag at the upper end of the lesion, and a blind sinus tract at the caudal aspect with or without mucoid discharge The thyroglossal tract disappears by the tenth week of gestation. 1 This tract, which extends from the base of the tongue to the isthmic region of the thyroid, can be a site for thyroglossal cysts and ectopic thyroids. 1 Cadaveric studies have shown persistence of thyroglossal duct cysts (TGDC) remnants in 7% of an asymptomatic adult population. 2 TGDCs can occur anywhere along the tract of descent; however it is most commonly situated near the hyoid bone and the thyrohyoid membrane region.

The real frequency of TGDC carcinoma (TGDCa) is almost near to 1% of all TGDC A thyroglossal duct cyst is the most common congenital neck anomaly, which arises from the remnants of the thyroglossal duct and occurs in 7% of the adult population. It commonly presents as a painless midline neck mass below the level of the hyoid bone A case is presented of a laterally occurring thyroglossal cyst. In conventional teaching, thyroglossal duct remnants occupy the midline, or a position adjacent to the midline, and are found in a line marking the descent of the thyroid anlage and move upwards on protruding the tongue. Laterally presenting thyroglossal duct remnants are unusual

Thyroglossal duct cysts typically present with painless and mobile masses located in the anterior midline neck along the embryologic descend line of the thyroid gland [13, 14]. The lining of thyroglossal duct cysts consists of ciliated pseudostratified columnar or cuboidal cells with variable squamous epithelium INTRODUCTION Thyroglossal duct cysts are regarded as congenital anomalies. They arise from the residual segments of thyroglossal duct. A cancer with the incidence rate from 1% to 1.5% may develop in thyroglossal duct cysts. Approximately 30% of patients asked to be examined due to inflammatory cysts. This Study was aimed at determining the cytological characteristics of thyroglossal duct cyst.

The remaining 11 patients (31%), including 2 patients with thyroglossal duct cysts, had unsuccessful aspirations; 9 of these had persistent thyroid lesions immediately after aspiration. No complications occurred during 49 percutaneous aspirations or 14 operations Thyroglossal duct cyst presents most frequently in the midline of the neck, either at or just below the level of the hyoid bone. They generally manifest as painless neck swelling, and they move on protrusion of tongue and during swallowing. A case of thyroglossal cyst was reported in the left submandibular region in a 14-year-old girl, above the level of hyoid bone; ultrasound examination. 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

Thyroglossal duct cysts are congenital malformations caused by thyroglossal tract remnants ().Only a few cases of upper airway obstruction resulting from thyroglossal duct cysts have been reported in the literature (2-4).Furthermore, to our knowledge, there have been no reported cases of thyroglossal duct cyst infection from Neisseria gonorrhoeae Background: neck cysts are frequently encountered in pediatric medicine and can present a diagnostic dilemma for clinicians and pathologists.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Previous reports have suggested that thyroglossal duct cysts (TDCs) appear on sonograms as well-defined cystic masses with thin walls and posterior enhancement. In our experience, however, TDCs have a variable sonographic appearance. We report our findings in 40 patients with TDCs and document the variability of sonographic patterns 1. R H B Allard.

The thyroglossal duct cyst (TDC) is one of the most common congenital neck masses occurring in children, representing approximately 70% of the congenital lesions that occur in the neck. 1, 2 Sonography is thought to be an ideal initial technique for the differential diagnosis of a neck mass. In the past, the TDC commonly had been known to be a midline anechoic cyst at the level of the hyoid. Thyroglossal duct carcinoma is a relatively rare lesion ( 8 ), with a reported frequency of 1.8% (7 cases among 371 thyroglossal ducts or cysts) according to LiVolsi ( 6) and 1.7% (2 cases among 116 cysts) according to Keeling ( 9 ). Van Vuuren ( 1) reported a female:male ratio of 1.6:1 Imaging characteristics of a thyroglossal duct cyst as a simple cyst and of ectopic thyroid tissue as a hyperattenuating soft-tissue mass can help identify these lesions at computed tomography (CT); however, intrinsic magnetic resonance, CT, and ultrasonographic imaging characteristics alone cannot be used to confirm the diagnosis
