BRONCHOGENIC CYST, CASE REPORT AND REVIEW OF LITERATURE

M Farag, N Naguib, A Izzidien

Abstract


Bronchogenic cyst is a benign congenital developmental abnormality of the embryonic foregut. It is usually formed as a result of an accessory lung bud becoming isolated from the rest of the trachea-bronchial tree. It is usually a solitary extra pulmonary cyst and is a benign condition found most commonly in the mediastinum with rare occurrence in the skin or subcutaneous tissues. The skin is a rare site for bronchogenic cysts where it is often a solitary lesion. It is poorly recognized by clinicians and in almost all cases the diagnosis is established by histopathology.
