We present a case of lateral cervical cyst stressing the difficulties about the diagnosis. The international guidelines for the management of lateral neck cysts in the over 40s' age group are taken in consideration. Our case is a 74 years old male patient with a 6 month history of a cervical swelling. We consider this case rare for the age of patient and the absence of malignancy.
