Abstract

Branchial cleft cysts, also known as Branchial cleft anomalies, are congenital anomalies arising from the first through fourth pharyngeal pouches. These anomalies can exist as true fistulae, cysts, or sinus tracts, depending on the degree of incomplete obliteration during embryogenesis. A 16year old male presented with complaints of intermittent discharge clear fluid and then pus discharge from the right post auricular sinus. Previously patient had undergone incision and drainage twice for the cystic swelling at the same site. Hrct and sinogram were inconclusive. Patient was taken up for surgical excision and exploration during the surgery tract was found leading into the parotid tissue. We classify this case as work’s type 1 due its location post auricular region and relation to parotid gland.
