Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Fourth branchial anomalies are rare entities. Despite this, they must be considered when presented with a low lateral neck mass, recurrent lower neck abscesses, or recurrent suppurative thyroiditis. The truly unique presentation of this case highlights the importance of including these anomalies in the differential diagnosis for all neck lesions.
