Abstract

Introduction: Although thyroglossal cysts are very common in children and young adults, their presentation in the elderly is very rare and often goes undiagnosed. This may lead to incomplete excision and recurrence of the cyst, thereby increasing the risk for a malignancy. Here we present a case in an elderly patient, who presented to us with a midline neck swelling, whereas the histopathology report confirmed a thyroglossal cyst.

Keywords: Thyroglossal cyst, Elderly, Midline neck swelling, Malignancy, Incomplete.
