Abstract

OBSERVATION:

A 30-year-old patient presented with a left painful pre-auricular tumefaction for one year. CT-scan suggested the diagnosis of temporomandibular synovial cyst or first branchial cleft cyst. This was confirmed by surgery.

DISCUSSION:

Temporomandibular synovial cysts are rare, the etiology is not documented. Revealing symptoms are those mentioned above. The common treatment is surgery.
