Abstract

Branchial anomalies are a consequence of abnormal development of the branchial apparatus during embryogenesis. Here, a pediatric case with a right-sided fourth branchial cyst that was discovered on fetal ultrasound scanning (US) is presented. The embryological basis for the occurrence of this cyst and definitive surgical management are discussed.
