Thyroglossal duct cyst

The thyroglossal duct cyst arises from a remnant of the thyroglossal duct which follows a course from the thyroid isthmus to the tongue base. Most of the thyroglossal duct cysts will be in the midline, but approximately 25% may be paramedian. About 20% are suprahyoid in location.
