Bottom Line: We report an extremely rare case of isolated enteric cyst in the neck region which was diagnosed on the histopathological examination.It was suspected to be duplication cyst on radiology.We have also evaluated the differential diagnosis and management issues.

Mentions: Foregut duplication cysts and enteric cysts are derived from dorsal enteric portion of the foregut. Foregut cysts and bronchogenic cysts are derived from ventral respiratory portion of the foregut. The differentiation of duplication cyst from the rest of the cystic lesions is done according to the criteria laid down by Ladd and Grossa and later reinforced by Parker et al. These include (a) close proximity to the gastrointestinal tract, (b) lining which resemble some part of the gastrointestinal tract, and (c) an outer smooth muscle layer which either shares the muscle wall with the gut or is intermingled with the muscular coat of the bowel. Foregut and bronchogenic cysts do not have the two distinct layers of smooth muscle layers like enteric cysts. Bronchogenic cysts in addition have cartilage in their walls (Figure 1). In our case, cyst was completely isolated from esophagus and had two distinct smooth muscle layers in its wall, proving it to be isolated enteric cyst.
