(A) Prenatal magnetic resonance imaging showed a simple cystic mass (arrows) in the posterior pharyngeal gap, a mass that showed marked extrinsic compression of the airway. (B) Magnetic resonance imaging showed a simple cystic mass in the left side of the posterior pharyngeal gap, a mass that showed compression of the airway mostly at the level of the oropharynx.

(B) Magnetic resonance imaging showed a simple cystic mass in the left side of the posterior pharyngeal gap, a mass that showed compression of the airway mostly at the level of the oropharynx.

Mentions: A 38-year-old woman, gravida 1, was referred to our hospital for further evaluation of a pharyngeal cyst of the fetus at 35 weeks gestation. Prenatal ultrasonography showed that the fetus had a 3 × 2×2 cm hypoechoic simple cystic mass in the pharyngeal region, without signs of internal blood flow by Doppler examination (Fig.1A and B). Amniotic fluid volume was normal. Fetal MRI at 35 weeks gestation indicated the presence of a 3 × 3×2 cm simple cystic mass on the left side of the posterior pharyngeal gap, a mass that showed marked extrinsic compression of the airway (Fig.2A). A prenatal diagnosis of pyriform sinus fistula was made on the basis of these findings. There was no family history of congenital malformation.
