Thyroglosal cyst , sistrunk operation

Thyroglossal cyst will move with deglutition and protrusion of tongue. D/d: Infected thyroglossal cyst Infected pretracheal LN Infected sebaceous cyst

If swelling recurs could b thyroglossal cyst - Do sistrunk electively Could b tb abscess- start on att Simple Abscess- I n d will settle it Infected dermoid cyst - excision later once infection subsides
