Abstract

The course of a third branchial f istula is derived from its embryological origin, in accordance with the branchial apparatus theory. Treatment of this condition requires complete removal of the tract in order to avoid recurrence; however, this can pose a risk to the surrounding structures. We report the case of a complete third branchial fistula as well as a literature review on its theoretical course and management.
