Bronchogenic Cyst###Presented with right paratracheal
cyst (n=1).###Infected cyst###Surgical excision of cyst (=1)
This type of cancers tend to spread to the paratracheal
and cervical lymphatics (1).
Given the more diverse presentation of the lower quadrant adenomas, the observer delicately explored the paratracheal
regions, the area around the carotid artery, and deep regions of the neck and superior mediastinum using the oblique craniocaudal view.
Level VII in the American Head and Neck Society classification refers to pretracheal, paratracheal
, and esophageal groove lymph nodes, extending from the level of suprasternal notch cephalad and up to the innominate artery caudad.
In PTC management, the challenges of the central neck region radiological imaging, metastases to this area, and arguments of performing the paratracheal
lymph node dissection with total thyroidectomy for PTC are still ongoing issues [19, 30].
The CT of the thorax demonstrated multiple conglomerate mediastinal lymphadenopathies in paratracheal
, aortopulmonary, subcarinal, and right paraesophageal regions [Figure 1].
An increase of linear-type transparency starting from the right paratracheal
area and extending to the mediastinum, and a subcutaneous emphysema in the neck region were observed on the posteroanterior (PA) chest X-ray of the patient (Figure 1).
The age, sex, diagnostic codes, retrosternal extension of the thyroid gland (aortic upper arch, aortic reaching arch and aortic inferior arch), extension type (prevascular, paratracheal
retrovascular and retrotracheal), extension amount (mm) (<50% and 50%50% below the thoracic entry.
One of the more prominent right lower paratracheal
lymph node measures 8.00mm in short axis."
(3) Other terms also used to describe the condition include tracheocele, paratracheal
air cyst, and tracheal diverticulum.
As mediastinoscopy require general anesthesia allows access only to paratracheal
, and subcarinal lymph nodes and in many cases require an inpatient stay.
