Abstract

Branchial cleft cyst (BCC) is a relatively common congenital malformation in the neck. However, the fourth BCC is very rare and frequently unknown to clinicians. Failure to appropriately recognize this anomaly may result in misdiagnosis, insufficient treatment, and continued recurrence. Even though its rarity, it usually occurs on the left side. Here, we present an unusual case of fourth branchial cleft cyst that occurred on the right side.
