Abstract

We report the case of a 17-year-old girl presenting a 3-month history of progressive dysphonia, and ultimately acute respiratory failure. CT scan and bronchoscopy showed severe extrinsic compression of the carina and of the left main stem bronchus. Emergency thoracotomy was performed permitting complete resection of an intra mural oesophageal bronchogenic cyst. The post operative course was uneventful except a persistent dysphonia. Dysphonia is an exceptional early symptom of bronchogenic cyst located in the oesophageal wall.
