Abstract

Cutaneous and subcutaneous cysts with ciliated pseudostratified columnar (respiratory) epithelium present a diagnostic dilemma. We report a case of a bronchogenic cyst occurring on the back. The differential diagnosis includes branchial cleft cyst, thyroglossal duct cyst, cutaneous ciliated cyst, and mature cystic teratoma. We review reports of extrapulmonary bronchogenic cysts and discuss their possible embryology.
