Abstract

Bronchogenic cysts are rare and benign congenital malformations. They arise from ventral surface of foregut during development and commonly present in mediastinum and intrapulmonary region. Bronchogenic cysts are often incidental findings in childhood. Majority of them are symptomless and rarely associated with symptoms such as stridor in neonates, dysphagia, dyspnea on exertion, and recurrent infection. Here we present a case of a bronchogenic cyst presented as Submandibular swelling in an adult a rare presentation.
