Anomalies of the branchial cleft form during early embryonic head and neck development. Many of these anomalies are asymptomatic, but when symptoms occur, the only definitive method of treatment is surgical excision. Sonography is a useful imaging modality for assessment of neck masses. A case of branchial cleft cyst evaluated by sonography is presented, and differential diagnoses are discussed.
