Abstract A case of a 9-year-old female with suprasternal extension of the thymus mimicking thyroid gland enlargement is described. Ultrasonography successfully established the diagnosis. Aberrant cervical thymic tissue is an infrequently reported cause of paediatric neck masses. It is important to be aware of this entity to prevent anxiety and inappropriate investigation and/or intervention.
