Management of infected recurrent mediastinal bronchogenic cyst with tuberculous mediastinal lymphadenitis
- 1 Downloads
We describe a case of a 20-year-old woman with recurrent bronchogenic cyst. The cyst made its debut at the age of six, which was excised surgically. Preoperative investigations revealed a mass in the right parasternal region extending from around the pericardium, present between the second and fourth ribs and abutting the right mediastinal structures. Dense adhesions were noted and released selectively to avoid iatrogenic injury. Complete evacuation and excision of the cyst from around the pericardium and phrenic nerve with marsupialization of the sac were performed. The patient’s post-operative course was uneventful.
