Branchiogenic cyst in Infant/Neonate
Branchial cleft cysts usually occur in the lateral neck and are often bilateral. Most branchial cleft cysts are asymptomatic. However, superinfection of the cyst may occur, particularly during upper respiratory illness, causing tenderness, inflammation, or drainage.
Cysts are congenital, but may not be discovered until early adulthood. Infection of the cyst is treated with antibiotics and sometimes incision and drainage. Once cysts are no longer infected they can be surgically removed.
