Spontaneous regression of bronchogenic cyst accompanied by pneumonia

View Article: PubMed Central

ABSTRACT

Bronchogenic cysts arise from abnormal budding of the ventral diverticulum of the foregut or tracheobronchial tree during embryogenesis, are the most common cystic masses in the mediastinum, and are generally asymptomatic. A spontaneous regression in a mediastinal bronchogenic cyst (MBC) with pneumonia is rare. A 30-year-old male had a tumor shadow in the middle mediastinum. When he visited our hospital, he had a mild fever with coughing and sputum. A chest computed tomography (CT) scan showed a decrease in the tumor size and the existence of right pneumonia. MBC may be involved in the etiology of pneumonia; therefore, bronchogenic cysts need to be resected as soon as possible.

Fig3: We performed tumor resection by a video-assisted thoracic surgery approach. There was strong fibrous adhesion between the tumor and right lung

Mentions: We performed tumor resection using the VATS approach. Regarding findings in the thoracic cavity, fibrous adhesion was detected between the tumor and right lung (FigĀ 3). After the liquid contents of the tumor had been removed, the wall of the cyst was resected as much as possible. There was no bacterium in the liquid contents. Since part of the tumor strongly adhered to the bronchial wall, complete resection of the cyst wall was difficult. Therefore, the wall of the intracystic cavity was cauterized with an electronic knife.Fig. 3
