Abstract: Cervical bronchogenic cysts are rare malformations
We present a rare case of 19-year-old male with a gradually progressive upper lateral cervical mass.
He was surgically managed with transcervical excision of the mass.
Pathology revealed cyst was lined by stratified squamous epithelium and showed moderate lymphomononuclear cell infiltrate and congested blood vessels consistent with bronchogenic cyst.
To our knowledge, this a rare case of bronchogenic cyst in the upper lateral part of the neck reported in an adult.
Summary: • Bronchogenic cysts are a rare malformation with cervical cysts being infrequent reporting.
• We present a case of bronchogenic cyst in the lateral aspect of the neck, and thus bronchogenic cyst should be considered a differential diagnosis in the workup of neck cyst masses
