Surgical treatment for central bronchogenic carcinoma with invasion of the main bronchus and pulmonary artery often include bronchial anastomosis and pulmonary angioplasty. As a technique, video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy has proven to reduce the rate of occurrence of complications, and thereby obtain improved survival rates. In the present case study, its use in treating central bronchogenic carcinoma with invasion of the main bronchus and pulmonary artery is reported. A case study of a 68-year-old man with a history of smoking 15-20 cigarettes per day for 40 years is described, who presented with a cough and hemoptysis...

Bronchogenic cysts are congenital malformations of the tracheobronchial tree. We describe a 20-month-old male who presented with persistent non-bilious emesis; manometry and imaging were consistent with esophageal achalasia. During a planned laparoscopic Heller myotomy, an intramural bronchogenic cyst was discovered in the anterior esophagus at the level of the gastroesophageal junction and successfully resected with resolution of his symptoms.

INTRODUCTION: The mediastinal bronchogenic cysts represents 50%-60% of mediastinal cysts and rarely occurs in the posterior mediastinum. The final surgical resection is indicated for symptomatic patients and is recommended for some asymptomatic patients in order to establish the diagnosis and to avoid any subsequent complications. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of 17 years-old male suffering from bronchogenic cysts of the mediastinum. The patient was admitted to our hospital complaining with dry chough and dyspnea; CT scan showed a cystic mass in posterior mediastinum...

Congenital pericardial defects are a rare anomaly, found during autopsy and cardiothoracic surgery. We describe a case of a 69-year-old female, with a right-sided congenital pericardial defect associated with a giant bronchogenic cyst (BC) found during surgery. The cyst was resected and the patient developed arrhythmia following surgery. A review of the literature in Japan was performed, focusing on congenital anomalies associated with pericardial defects and its pathogenesis. We paid particular attention to complications following thoracic surgery in patients with pericardial defects and indications of pericardial reconstruction in such patients...

Bronchogenic cyst (BC) is a rare congenital malformation of the lung. Most patients remain asymptomatic until adulthood while some are symptomatic in the first few years of life. However, symptoms in newborn period are rare. We report a case of a 3-day-old preterm baby with respiratory distress diagnosed as congenital lobar emphysema on chest X-ray. A CT scan revealed a mediastinal cyst causing obstructive lobar emphysema. The cyst was excised and pathological examination was suggestive of BC.

INTRODUCTION: Bronchogenic cysts, commonly located in the mediastinum or lung parenchyma, arise from abnormal budding of the tracheobronchial tree. Since an unknown percentage of asymptomatic adult patients with bronchogenic cysts remain undiagnosed, the true natural history ofthese cysts in adults is uncertain and the available series reflect a significant selection bias in favor of the symptomatic individual. CASE REPORT: We present the case of a 42-year-old female who presented with adull central chest pain, which gradually worsened overseveral weeks...

Lesions of the retropharyngeal space (RPS) are uncommon, and they generally present as solitary, painless masses, which are often cystic. They usually originate from branchial arches anomalies, and only in a few cases do they turn out to be bronchogenic cysts. Generally, these lesions are diagnosed in childhood, but sometimes they can appear in adulthood. We report here a rare case of a bronchogenic cyst expanding into the RPS and causing dysphagia in an adult patient treated surgically. Since the RPS is clinically inaccessible, clinical examination was not crucial in determining the correct diagnosis, and only the additional information provided by radiological examinations led to the final diagnosis, which is essential for accurate surgical planning...

Endodermal cysts, also known as neurogenic, neuroenteric, foregut, bronchogenic, respiratory, epithelial, teratomatous, or gastrocytoma cysts, can be found in the central nervous system, predominantly in the subarachnoid space of the cervical and thoracic spinal cord. We describe a child with an endodermal cyst of the third nerve and highlight neuroimaging findings, pathological correlation, clinical course, and patient management.

Small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (SNEC) is a rare form of malignancy. It mainly presents as bronchogenic neoplasm, and the extrapulmonary form accounts for only 0.1% to 0.4% of all cancers. These extrapulmonary tumors have been described most frequently in the urinary bladder, prostate, esophagus, stomach, colon and rectum, gall bladder, head and neck, cervix, and skin. Primary SNEC of the sinonasal tract is extremely rare with only less than 100 cases reported in the literature. Because of extreme rarity and aggressiveness of the tumor, the management for this entity varies considerably mandating multimodality approach...

Lung cancer is one of the leading causes of deaths in Europa and the USA. In approximately 75 % of lung cancer patients, bronchogenic carcinoma is detected at an advanced tumor stage; therefore, therapeutic options which aim at curing the disease in these patients are limited and treatment is mostly palliative. A relatively good prognosis is reserved for the minority of patients where the tumor is detected at an early stage and treatment is potentially curative. For this reason, early diagnosis of lung cancer could save lives...

INTRODUCTION: The appropriate management of asymptomatic congenital pulmonary malformations (CPMs) remains controversial. Prophylactic surgery is recommended to avoid the risk for development of pulmonary infections and to prevent the highly debated development of malignancy. However, the true risk for development of malignancy remains unknown. A systematic review analyzed all cases in which lung tumors associated with CPMs in both the pediatric and adult populations were described...

We report the findings for 2 patients with a fluid-fluid level seen on endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) images of bronchogenic cysts. The EBUS images demonstrated a well-circumscribed cyst with a fluid-fluid level showing an anechoic upper part and a relatively hyperechoic lower part. A fluid-fluid level on EBUS imaging of a bronchogenic cyst, which can help confirm the cystic nature of the lesion, has not been previously reported. EBUS-based confirmation of these cysts using fluid-fluid levels may help avoid unnecessary aspiration of the lesions...
