Intramural bronchogenic cyst of the oesophagus.

Tatebe S, Oka K, Kuraoka S - J Surg Case Rep (2012)

Bottom Line: Bronchogenic cysts are relatively common mediastinal cysts.Here, we report removal of a rare paraoesophageal-type bronchogenic cyst by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery in a 52-year-old male patient.The defect of the oesophageal wall was successfully reinforced with an intercostal muscle flap.

fig1: Postoperative barium swallow test (4 years after surgery)

Mentions: A 52-year-old man was referred due to an abnormal shadow on routine chest X-ray. His medical history included above-the-knee amputation of the left leg due to a traffic accident. He reported mild dysphagia when ingesting solid food. Physical findings were unremarkable. Computerized axial tomography (CAT) scan showed a posterior mediastinal mass compressing the oesophagus, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed high signal intensities on both T1 and T2 weighted images suggestive of bronchogenic cyst (Fig. 1).
