A thyroglossal duct cyst is an embryologic remnant that forms due to the failure of closure of the thyroglossal duct extending from the foramen cecum in the tongue to the thyroid's location in the neck. The thyroid begins to develop in the third week of gestation as a median outgrowth from the primitive pharynx Other common symptoms of a thyroglossal duct cyst include: speaking with a hoarse voice having trouble breathing or swallowing an opening in your neck near the cyst where mucus drains out feeling tender near the area of the cyst redness of the skin around the area of the cyst Thyroglossal duct cysts are epithelial-lined cysts. They result from failure of normal developmental obliteration of the thyroglossal duct during development (8 th - 10 th gestational week) and can thus occur anywhere along the course of the duct. The epithelial lining of the cyst varies with location
A thyroglossal cyst may become symptomatic if it becomes inflamed; resulting in pain and swelling. On examination, the cyst rises as the patient swallows or protrudes their tongue because of its attachment to the tongue via the tract of thyroid descent. Often, it presents with infection requiring drainage prior to excision. Last reviewed 01/201 The thyroglossal cyst is a midline neck swelling that arises from the remnant of the thyroglossal tract. It is often located below or near the hyoid bone. The most common population affected with this pathology are children in the first decade of life, with both genders being equally affected. Etiology of Thyroglossal Cysts Thyroglossal Duct Cyst is one of the most common congenital neck cysts. This is actually mass or lump formed after the formation of the Thyroid Gland. Medically, it is said that the Thyroglossal Duct Cyst is formed from the cells and tissues that remained after the formation of the gland. This takes place during the embryonic development Thyroglossal duct cyst is a benign developmental malformation that occurs when the thyroglossal duct does not close after the thyroid gland has descended from it.

What is a thyroglossal duct cyst? The thyroglossal duct is a tube in the neck that helps the thyroid gland develop in a baby before it's born. Usually, the duct closes after the thyroid gland forms. If it doesn't close, it leaves a space that can fill with liquid or mucus (called a cyst). Thyroglossal duct cysts can develop at any age.
