Retroperitoneal bronchogenic cyst presenting as an adrenal mass

Arch Pathol Lab Med. 1991 Oct;115(10):1057-9.


Subdiaphragmatic bronchogenic cysts are rare, and those located retroperitoneally are exceptional. A review of the English-language literature revealed only three reported cases. We describe an additional case of a retroperitoneal bronchogenic cyst that presented uniquely as a symptomatic adrenal mass and discuss the cases of subdiaphragmatic bronchogenic cysts reported in the English-language literature.
