Abstract

Bronchogenic Cysts (BC) are congenital lesions found mostly around the tracheobronchial tree and in the mediastinum, but rarely in the diaphragm. In here, we report 4 cases of patients with intradiaphragmatic Bronchogenic Cysts (BCs) at our hospital and review the related literature published in English. We characterized the clinical course, preoperative diagnoses, Computed Tomography (CT) imaging, surgical approaches to resection, extent of resection, and pathological characteristics of each case. We focused mainly on the surgical procedure to treat the intradiaphragmatic BCs.
