Persistent buccopharyngeal membrane is an extremely rare entity. We report a three-year-old boy who presented with an oral chord-like structure that extended from the base of the tongue up to the posterior part of the vomer. Only seven cases of persistent buccopharyngeal membrane could be found in the review of the literature. Embryology is also discussed.
