DOI : 10.26663/cts.2019.00027 Viewed : 346 - Downloaded : 176 Bronchogenic cysts are generally asymptomatic and are detected incidentally by radiographic imaging as a smooth homogeneous mediastinal/pulmonary lesion. Isolated intradiaphragmatic bronchogenic cysts are extremely rare. Here, we report a case of intradiaphragmatic bronchogenic cyst mimicking a left lower lobe mass in a 56-year-old man suffering from chest pain. Imaging studies of the chest, including plain chest radiography and computerized tomography revealed a left sided mass in the lower zone. The patient underwent surgical resection of the mass. Intradiaphragmatic bronchogenic cyst was diagnosed by pathology. Keywords : bronchogenic cyst, diaphragma, mass
