ABSTRACT
Although cervical thymic cyst is rarely reported in adults, it should be considered as a differential diagnosis of cystic lesion developed on the lower lateral neck. Despite showing nonspecific image findings, sonography and sonography-guided aspiration biopsy are useful to distinguish cervical thymic cyst from other cystic lesions on the neck.
