Question Brachial cleft derivatives

I know this must be really easy for you guys, but this is killing me.

FA 2010, p.129 and p. 130:

Persisten cervical sinus is the same as congenital pharyngocutaneosu fistula???

For me looks like they are different but are really similar in presentation.

S.O.S.

LOL! I guess nobody really knows... Have you tried googling for it? If you can't find the answer in google, I wouldn't know where else to look for it. I'm sorry I can't be of help. If I encounter the answer to your question, I'll let you know.

I've googled it... at some point in my search it looked the same thing, like if FA is using two different names fore the same disease. However, the only thing that keeps me wondering is that Congenital pharyngocutaneous fistula appears as part of the "3th brachial arch derivates" and Persistent cervical sinus is within "Brachial cleft derivates". The description of the two of them looks the same to me. But I'm not sure.



I'm still looking for the answer, though.


Thanks for the help!!!

Thank you very much for you help. However... if you check in page 127 (bottom) and p. 128 in where 3th brachial derivates are. You'll find the different description too.
