ABSTRACT: Bronchogenic cysts are congenital lesions derived from abnormal budding of the primitive tracheobronchial tree. Many cases of bronchogenic cysts have been reported, but only a few have caused obstructive emphysema severe enough to warrant early thoracotomy in infancy. We report a case of an 8-month old male who presented to us with cough, dyspnea, stridor and wheezing. The symptoms were due to a bronchogenic cyst compressing the left main bronchus causing unilateral obstructive emphysema. He required thoracotomy and excision of the cyst resulting in complete relief of his symptoms.
