A lateral cervical cyst, presumably of branchial origin, was found to contain gastric epithelium. This is an extremely rare condition and, to our knowledge, represents the first such report in a branchial cyst. The literature is reviewed and speculations are made with respect to the embryologic and clinical implications of this anomaly.
