Abstract

One case each of: (1) low grade thyroid lymphoma; (2) supraclavicular and para-oesophageal metastasis of a uterine adenocarcinoma; and (3) recurrent multinodular goitre have been encountered in very intimate relationship with the neck of a pharyngeal pouch within the tracheo-oesophageal gutter raising the possibility that the two conditions were interrelated. The practical importance of these cases is that a surgeon excising a pouch from the neck ought to be able to resect a thyroid lobe should it prove necessary, and occasionally endoscopic diverticulotomy is the only reasonable option.
