Abstract

We report a case of complete branchial fistula in an 18-year-old woman which could be demonstrated by a contrast study. The tract was completely excised and the patient had an uneventful recovery. Branchial fistulae are formed due to the persistence of the embryonic second branchial cleft. Complete fistulae with the internal opening in the region of the tonsillar fossa are not common.
