Branchial cleft cyst and Comorbidity  

 I'm seeking any information from parents of BOR children or people with BOR who have a branchial cleft cyst, specifically a "second branchial cleft cyst" (which indicates the location in which it is connected on the inside of body or neck).

I'm wondering if there is any association with the branchial cleft cyst and neck tightness. Since the branchial cleft cyst can span from the open gill on the outter neck to the inner part of the throat it seems that perhaps this could contribute to some tightness in range of motion or turning in certain directions.

Also, the branchial cleft cyst is near the STM muscle (sternocleidomastoid), are there any cases in which those two structures interract and cause limits in neck rotation?

Lastly, has anyone had BOR and also Torticollis?
