Presternal cutaneous bronchogenic cyst: a rare case

N. Srivani, Syamala Srujana, Rajendra Prasad, L. Krishna, O. Shravan Kumar.

Cutaneous bronchogenic cysts are rare congenital anomalies arising from the ventral foregut that forms the respiratory system as a result of abnormal budding of the bronchial tree during embryogenesis between 4th and 6th weeks of gestation. In the majority of the cases, pre-operative diagnosis is difficult, and the diagnosis is usually a histopathological surprise. We report a case of cutaneous bronchogenic cyst of the presternal location, which presented as a subcutaneous nodule with a discharging fistula. Histopathology showed a cyst lined by respiratory type of epithelium and unusual presence of lymphoid follicles around the cyst wall.

Key words: Cutaneous bronchogenic cyst, Presternal, Lymphoid follicles
