A 30-year-old man presented with a painless, slow-growing, cystic swelling in the right side of his neck. Physical examination revealed a cystic mass, measuring approximately 8 × 9 cm in diameter, located in the inferoposterior aspect of the neck, extending from the lower half of the sternocleidomastoid muscle to the scapular bone. The swelling was medium-hard, fixed, and painless on palpation. No hyperemia or thrill was noted. The findings of routine laboratory tests, chest radiography, and examination of the ear, nose, and throat were otherwise normal.
