Intrapulmonary bronchogenic cyst: spontaneous dissolution?

Academic Article


  • A well-demarcated, non-calcific, solitary pulmonary nodule was initially discovered 3 v2 years ago on a chest radiograph in a 43-year-old woman with recurrent acute bronchitis. The nodNle had been stationary with minimal change in size until the last radiographic examination which showed total disappearance of the nodule. A thin-walled, air-filled cyst was, however, demonstrated by computed tomography at the same location. The nodule was believed to be an intrapulmonary bronchogenic cyst which developed communication with airway with discharge of its watery content, leading to its pseudo resolution.
