Understanding Thyroglossal Cysts. A thyroglossal cyst is a type of neck lump (mass) that some people are born with. Thyroglossal cysts are most often found and treated in children. But they may sometimes go undetected or untreated until adulthood. In most cases, thyroglossal cysts are benign. This means they are not cancer The diagnosis of thyroglossal cyst is usually a clinical one and the main role of investigations is to look for presence of a normal thyroid. Usually a normal thyroid gland is almost always present, because the thyroglossal duct cyst is the embryologic remnant after the gland has descended Thyroglossal duct cysts are epithelial-lined cysts. They result from failure of normal developmental obliteration of the thyroglossal duct during development (8 th - 10 th gestational week) and can thus occur anywhere along the course of the duct . A cyst in the neck caused by persistence of portions of, or by lack of closure of, the primitive thyroglossal duct. (Dorland, 27th ed
Thyroglossal duct cysts are usually harmless. Surgical cyst removal has a good outlook: over 95 percent of cysts are fully cured after surgery. The chance of a cyst returning is small Thyroglossal duct cyst(TDC) is a frequent congenital midline anomaly of the neck that usually manifests during the first decade of life but may develop at any age. Presentation, management, and outcome of thyroglossal duct cysts in adult and pediatric populations: a 14-year single center experience Thyroglossal duct cysts (TDC) are the most common congenital neck masses. Although they are anatomically closely related to the larynx, intra-laryngeal extension is very rare. We present a case, review the literature and discuss the challenges of intra-laryngeal TDC Thyroglossal cysts are cystic swellings of the thyroglossal duct, an epithelium-lined remnant marking the embryologic descent of thyroid tissue from the base of the tongue to its final location anterior to the larynx thyroglossal cyst. Thyrolingual cyst A fluid-filled space present at birth at the midline of the neck, resulting from an incomplete closure of the thyroglossal duct which normally closes before birth.

A thyroglossal (say: THIGH-row-GLOSS-all) duct cyst is found about halfway down the front of the neck. It feels like a firm lump that moves upward when your child swallows. Sometimes the cyst can become enlarged and infected. This causes pain and tenderness. It can also lead to problems swallowing and breathing Thyroglossal duct cyst is typically located in the median line of the anterior side of the neck, below the hyoid bone.

A thyroglossal duct cyst is often initially discovered during a physical examination in child who is showing no other symptoms. Either the family or the physician detects the mass in the upper midline neck. Since a variety of different masses can occur in the neck, an imaging study needs to be performed. Generally this study is a cervical.
Introduction. Thyroglossal duct cysts (TGDCs) are the most common congenital neck mass, usually found centrally, and account for 70% of congenital neck anomalies ().The thyroglossal duct originates during embryonic development of the thyroid gland, and typically involutes and atrophies after migration of the primitive thyroid to its final position in the inferior neck () A thyroglossal duct cyst is a lesion that occurs as a result from failure of the thyroglossal duct to obliterate during fetal development. Malignant progression is a rare event that might occur in less than 1% of all cases. Because of its rarity, there are conflicting opinions regarding the management of the case. In the present study, a 46-year-old male presented with a painless neck mass.
Thyroglossal duct cyst carcinoma typically presents with an asymptomatic midline neck mass. 73.3% of these types of carcinomas were diagnosed as an incidental finding on final pathologic analysis. Patients diagnosed with thyroglossal duct cyst carcinoma tend to be adults and have an older average age than the typical thyroglossal duct cyst patient A Clinical Study On Thyroglossal Duct Cyst 44 Thyroglossal duct cysts have been seen to be located at different sites. We found majority (83.3%) of cysts were subhyoid in location followed by suprahyoid in 10% and suprasternal and overhyoid in 3.35%. Most of the cysts (9.7%) were midline while one was seen towards left side Key words: Thyroglossal duct cyst, neck mass, congenital anomaly. INTRODUCTION Thyroglossal duct cyst is the commonest congenital neck mass in children1. This congenital malformation occurs due to incomplete closure of the thyroglossal duct. Towards the end of the third week of embryonic life thyroid gland appears as an epithelial proliferatio Then the imaging characteristics of ectopic thyroid tissue and thyroglossal duct cysts are detailed, followed by the four anatomic landmarks used to categorize potential locations for these two entities: (a) the base of the tongue, (b) the hyoid bone, (c) the midline infrahyoid portion of the neck, and (d) the lateral part of the neck Thyroglossal Cyst is an abnormal growth on the neck that looks like a lump. It is the most common type of Nonodontogenic Cyst i.e. it is an oral cyst developing from epithelium which is nested in bony or soft-tissue joints during embryonal development. A Thyroglossal Cyst is also known as a Thyroglossal Duct Cyst or Thyroglossal Tract Cyst

Fig.1: Thyroglossal duct cyst in typical site The thyroid gland is the first of the body's endocrine glands to develop, beginning in the third week of gestation, even before the nervous system has begun development. It develops at the base of the tongue, at an area called the foramen caecum, and descends in front of the pharyngeal gut along the thyroglossal tract A thyroglossal duct cyst is a congenital (present from birth) defect. When the thyroid gland forms during embryonic development, it begins at the base of the tongue and moves down the neck through a canal called the thyroglossal duct. This duct normally disappears once the thyroid reaches its final position in the neck A thyroglossal cyst is a lump in the midline of the neck. The cyst itself actually originates from thyroid tissue. . The thyroid gland sits in the lower part of the neck, near the midline and just either side. The thyroid gland has a number of important functions, including producing the hormone thyroxine and controlling calcium levels
Diagnosis This is a case of thyroglossal syst situated in the prelaryngeal region Differential Diagnosis Differential diagnosis: These cysts should be differentiated from 1. Dermoid cyst - cheesy secretion 2. Infected lymph node (Delphian) - purulent secretion 3. Lipoma - slippery edges 4. Sebaceous cyst - doughy feel 5. Thyroid isthmus tumour 6 A thyroglossal cyst may become symptomatic if it becomes inflamed; resulting in pain and swelling. On examination, the cyst rises as the patient swallows or protrudes their tongue because of its attachment to the tongue via the tract of thyroid descent.

Thyroglossal duct cyst (TGDC) is the most common congeni-tal anomaly of the neck in childhood, representing more than 75% of congenital midline neck masses. Although TGDCs of-ten occur in pediatric patients, at least half are diagnosed in the second decade of life and they can also present later in adult Thyroglossal Duct Cysts. A TGDC can enlarge several centimeters in size but on presentation they are typically pea size to 2 cm. They are commonly firm but not solid or soft on palpation. They may be freely mobile under the skin and classically elevate on swallowing. TGDC can develop a variety of secondary features A thyroglossal duct cyst is a condition where there is development of neck lump or mass from the leftover or persistent tissues and cells present after the formation of the thyroid gland.
