Ectopic cervical thymus is an essentially benign condition related to embryological development of the thymus and is exceedingly rare among the adult population. Precise and early diagnosis of the entity on high-resolution ultrasonography may help avoid further investigations and unnecessary surgical intervention. This case report describes the typical sonological appearance of ectopic cervical thymus in a 44-year-old male.
