PMID:  20730387     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The course of a third branchial fistula is derived from its embryological origin, in accordance with the branchial apparatus theory. Treatment of this condition requires complete removal of the tract in order to avoid recurrence; however, this can pose a risk to the surrounding structures. We report the case of a complete third branchial fistula as well as a literature review on its theoretical course and management.
