Neck.

The following conditions of the neck are causes for rejection of membership:
(1) Cervical ribs if symptomatic, or so obvious that they are found on routine physical examination. (Detection based primarily on X-ray is not considered to meet this criterion);
(2) Congenital cysts of branchial cleft origin or those developing from the remnants of the thyroglossal duct, with or without fistulous tracts;
(3) Fistula, chronic draining, of any type;
(4) Healed tuberculosis lymph nodes when extensive in number or densely calcified;
(5) Nonspastic contraction of the muscles of the neck or cicatricial contracture of the neck to the extent that it interferes with the wearing of a uniform or equipment or is so disfiguring as to make the individual objectionable in common social relationships;
(6) Spastic contraction of the muscles of the neck, persistent, and chronic;
(7) Tumor of thyroid or other structures of the neck, see WAC 415-104-720 and 415-104-725.
