Ectopic Thymic Tissue and Fibromatosis Colli Ectopic cervical thymic tissue is a rare finding in infants. Sonography shows an echogenic, soft and solid cervical lesion with echogenic strips and the same echogenicity as the children’s thymus with marked vascularization [1]. Fibromatosis colli is a benign, firm, fibrotic mass in the sternocleidomastoid muscle, usually detected in infants around 2–8 weeks of age which spontaneously resolves between 6 and 12 months of age. Ultrasound shows an isoechoic or hypoechoid mass within the muscle which moves with the muscle [3].

Fig. 2. Reactive lymph node of a noncancer patient. Besides the tender oval form the reduced echogenicity is striking, caused by hyperplastic follicles, thereby indicating benignancy. Fig. 3. Lymph node metastasis of a squamous cell carcinoma with inhomogeneous structure which is partially echo-rich. infection in the head and neck region such as tonsillitis or pharyngitis, for example. By ultrasound, multiple enlarged, tender oval masses with reduced echogenicity and increased, branching vascularity can be detected.

Lesions show high vascularity on Doppler with low-impedance flow. Rounded atelectasis may give rise to a pleural-based mass with associated pleural thickening and extrapleural fat. The invaginated pleura may be seen as an echogenic line running from the pleura into the mass [46]. US-Guided Interventions Principles US is ideal for guiding chest wall, pleural and peripheral pulmonary interventions, including diagnostic thoracentesis, closed tube drainage, chest wall and pleural biopsies and biopsies of lung tumours abutting or invading the pleura.
