Abstract

Bronchogenic cyst a bronchopulmonary foregut malformation. An intramural esophageal localization has rarely been reported in respect to more common esophageal duplications or leiomyoma. The authors describe a case of bronchogenic cyst of the esophageal wall in a 3 years old girl. It was an misdiagnosed cause of dysphagia and was revealed by endoscopy and CT scan after two uneffective antireflux procedures performed in different institutions, which caused a worsening of symptoms. Complete excision of the lesion through a thoractomic approach and a redo of the antireflux procedure were followed by complete recovery.
