Abstract

Anterior midline neck masses that move with both deglutition and protrusion of tongue are commonly suspected to be thyroglossal cysts, subhyoid bursitis, or ectopic thyroid tissue. We report a middle-aged male patient with an unusual presentation of hemangiopericytoma in the subhyoid region, clinically mimicking a thyroglossal cyst, and its management.
