Intradiaphragmatic Bronchogenic Cysts: A Case Report and Literature Review
Received Date: Jan 23, 2018 / Accepted Date: Feb 05, 2018 / Published Date: Feb 09, 2018
Bronchogenic cysts are a congenital developmental abnormality arising from the ventral foregut and are found most commonly in the mediastinum. However, several case reports indicated that bronchogenic cysts occur rarely within the diaphragm. Mubang et al. reported a case of intradiaphragmatic bronchogenic cyst and summarized 21 cases previously reported in the English literature. Most cases had several clinical symptoms, including back and/or chest pain, cough, etc. Here, we report a case of intradiaphragmatic bronchogenic cyst detected incidentally on chest computed tomography (CT) in an adult male patient without any clinical symptoms.
