Benign lesions other than pleomorphic adenoma and Warthin tumor included oncocytic adenomas, lipomas, lipomatosis, basal cell adenoma, nonsebaceous lymphadenoma, branchiogenic
cyst, and chronic inflammation.
TDC should be distinguished from branchiogenic
cysts developed close to the midline, solitary cysts in the thyroid gland, hemangioma, cystic lymphangioma and cystic degenerated lymph nodes .
carcinoma is a rare condition.
carcinoma--conceptual or true clinico-pathological entity.
The purpose of this overview is to summarize the current concept of carcinomas arising in branchial cleft cysts (so-called, branchiogenic
carcinoma), indicating that most, if not all, represent cystic metastases from oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma primaries.
Imaging is generally insufficient to differentiate cystic nodal metastases from primary branchiogenic
carcinomas, with both exhibiting soft tissue components associated with a cystic lesion.
(31) The presence of in situ carcinoma lesions in the epithelial wall of the branchial cleft cyst in case 1 has also been described in humans (28,32-34) and could represent a link (premalignant lesion) between branchial cysts and primary branchiogenic
(10) Cysts of the lateral neck were also believed to be of branchial origin, and in 1912, Wenglowski described the branchiogenic
origin of lateral cervical cysts through his work with the human embryo and with cadaver dissection.

This installment of PATHOLOGY CLINIC focuses on cervical cystic squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC), which is commonly misdiagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma arising in a branchiogenic
cyst or as a branchiogenic
