Case Report

Bronchogenic Cyst in an Infant

DKK Ng, AKW Law, WF Lau, PKH Tam


We report a case of bronchogenic cyst incidentally identified from a chest radiograph in a child with roseola infantum. This is not a common congenital malformation. Age of presentation can be very variable. Mediastinal cyst accounts for the majority of cases. Clinically it can be totally asymptomatic or it may cause severe respiratory distress especially in young infants. Chest radiograph and CT scan thorax are the mainstay of investigation.
