ABSTRACT

We report an unusual case of a patient with an oesophageal cyst connected to the bronchus. A 24-year old male with a two-year history of repeated attacks of chest infection and haemoptysis was found to have a cyst of 4×4 cm affecting the anterior and apical segments of the right upper lobe. The cyst was excised in its entirety and the histopathological study of the cyst showed stratified squamous epithelium with submucosal and muscular layer but no cartilage. The pathological diagnosis was an oesophageal cyst. No previous case of isolated oesophageal cyst connected to the bronchus has been reported according to the available literature.
