Bronchogenic cysts are rare congenital malformations originating from budding of the tracheobronchial component during foregut development. Most cy sts are located in the mediastinum and the intrapulmonary region. Localization in the cervical area is unusual. The majority of cases have been reported in the pediatric population and few cases in adults. We report an unusual case of bronchogenic cyst presenting as a deep lateral neck mass with dysphagia in an adult female. This case presented with three unusual elements: adult female, lateral cervical location, and presence of symptoms.
