Among the various congenital anomalies of the respiratory system, the extrapulmonary bronchogenic cyst is a rare pathologic lesion. The bronchogenic cyst is a developmental anomaly, occurring due to malformation of ventral foregut during the first 6 weeks of the intrauterine life. The cystic abnormality presents in infancy, children, and often in young adults. A case of 27-year-old male presented with subcutaneous swelling in the presternal area. The nodular swelling was excised and subsequently sent for surgical pathology examination. The cystic swelling was diagnosed on histopathology as a cutaneous bronchogenic cyst.
