Abstract

Bronchogenic Cyst (BC) is developmental abnormalities of the primitive foregut resulting from aberrant budding from the ventral diverticulum. As most intra-abdominal para-esophageal BC is clinically asymptomatic, it is usually diagnosed incidentally using radiological studies, either using sonogram or computed tomography. It is often difficult to differentiate from other intra-abdominal or retroperitoneal neoplastic lesions. Preoperative diagnosis for histological confirmation and absence of malignant degeneration may be done by image guided aspiration technique with symptomatic relief. However, surgical complete excision, rather than partial excision and aspiration, is the choice of treatment for prevention of recurrence. Long term follow-up with image study is necessary to detect recurrence at least for 2-3 decades.
