Cartilaginous branchial development has been studied extensively for many years. Since the first description of these studies done in 1828 [W.B. Matthews, Congenital cartilaginous rests in the neck, Arch. Surg. 28 (1934) 59; G. Atlan, E.P. Egerszegi, P. Brochu, L. Caouette-Laberge, P. Bortoluzzi, Cervical chrondrocutaneous branchial remnants, Plastic Reconstr. Surg. 100 (July (1)) (1997) 32-39; H. Braun, T. Hofmann, H. Wolfgruber, W. Anderhuber, A. Beham, H. Stammberger, Case report of bilateral cervical chondrocutaneous branchial remnants, Int. J. Pediatr. Otorhinolaryngol. 67 (January (1)) (2003) 89-92] and through modern time medical literature bilateral cervical branchial chondrocutaneous remnants have been a subject of very few reports. We present a case of a 5-year-old patient with bilateral cervical chondrocutaneous remnants treated by complete surgical removal.
