Received Date: Apr 21, 2018 / Accepted Date: May 08, 2018 / Published Date: May 11, 2018
Introduction: Bronchogenic cyst is an extremely rare congenital abnormality that is incidentally found by imaging during health check-up. They can hardly occur in the abdomen with unspecific symptoms or change in laboratory values. Case presentation: Here in, we are going to report a case of a 33 years old male patient who was admitted in our department for an intra-abdominal mass. Pathological result of the resected mass was bronchogenic cyst. Conclusion: In most of the cases, bronchogenic cysts are misdiagnosed. The use of endoscopic ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration, computed tomography guided needle biopsy or intraoperative frozen section biopsy is helpful in confirming their diagnosis and to choose the most appropriate treatment.
