BELLOLIO J, Enrique; TAPIA, Oscar; GUZMAN, Pablo  and  VILLASECA H, Miguel. Bronchogenic Cyst of Unusual Location: Report of Two Cases and Review of the Literature. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.4, pp.1313-1316. ISSN 0717-9502.

The bronchogenic cyst is a remanent of the development of the tracheobronchial tree. Alterations in cell migration during development cause the formation of cyst lining by respiratory epithelium. They are usually located in the thorax in lung and mediastinum. The definite diagnosis is realized with the pathology report. This is an uncommon pathological condition and the extra- thoracic forms are very unusual. We present two cases, one of which is of sublingual location and the other of subcutaneous location at the scapular site.

Keywords : Bronchogenic cyst; Bronchial cyst; Congenital cyst.
