A 36-YEAR-OLD man presented with an 11-month history of a mass in the right supraclavicular fossa. Shortly after the mass was discovered, a surgeon attempted to excise the mass. However, after a skin incisionwas made and the suparaclavicular fossa was surgically explored, no mass was identified. The wound was closed, and no further treatment or studies were performed. Over the following months, the patient noticed that the mass progressively increased in size and was associated with pain with neck movement and a decrease in range of neck motion.
