Ectopic cervical salivary tissue may present as a discharging sinus if a duct system and cutaneous orifice are present. Where described in previous reports these openings have been located along the anterior border of sternomastoid or in the anterior triangle, making this a differential diagnosis of a branchial sinus. We report on a patient who presented with an ectopic salivary gland in the posterior triangle of the neck.
