Bottom Line: Bronchogenic cysts are among developmental disorders of the primitive foregut which are typically found above the diaphragm.Bronchial cysts discovered in the abdominal cavity or retroperitoneum are extremely rare.We present a rare case of a retroperitoneal bronchogenic cyst which was incidentally detected after a wrestling injury in a 23-year-old man who had a negative medical history.

ABSTRACT
Bronchogenic cysts are among developmental disorders of the primitive foregut which are typically found above the diaphragm. Bronchial cysts discovered in the abdominal cavity or retroperitoneum are extremely rare. We present a rare case of a retroperitoneal bronchogenic cyst which was incidentally detected after a wrestling injury in a 23-year-old man who had a negative medical history. Although initial imaging studies suggested an adrenal tumor, histopathological analysis provided a definite diagnosis of bronchogenic cyst. Though rare, bronchogenic cysts must be considered in the differential diagnosis of retroperitoneal cystic lesions. This is the first case of a retroperitoneal bronchogenic cyst reported in Iran.

Mentions: Histological sections showed fragments of cystic wall, lined by bronchial type pseudostratified cylindrical epithelium resting on fibrovascular connective tissue containing extensive foci of mononuclear inflammatory cells aggregates and presence of smooth muscle fascicles. There were foci of non-neoplastic adrenal tissue attached to external surface of the cystic lesion. A subsequent cytological examination were negative for malignancy and acute inflammatory fluid. These findings were consistent with a bronchogenic cyst (Fig. 2).
