This educational exhibit will discuss an anatomically based differential diagnosis for cystic lesions of the aerodigestive tract and present and an algorithmic, anatomically-based diagnostic approach for these cysts. Cystic lesions of the aerodigestive tract are common findings at MRI and CT neck imaging. The spectrum of aerodigestive tract cystic lesions is broad and their clinical significance is widely varied. Differentiation of these lesions based on anatomic relationships can be helpful in guiding management. Representative images were acquired from PACS and labeled to highlight anatomic relationships to aid in accurate diagnosis.
